Global climate change. Natural hazards. Man-made disasters. Sustainable infrastructure development. Conservation of material, energy and water resources. Civil & Environmental Engineering addresses these grand challenges by bringing together the latest developments in science and technology.
The Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering’s two undergraduate programmes, Bachelor of Engineering (Civil Engineering) and Bachelor of Engineering (Environmental Engineering), emphasise multidisciplinary approaches to solve complex infrastructure and environmental problems. Bringing together flexible and innovative curricula, world-class teaching and research facilities, as well as faculty members that are well-regarded internationally in their respective areas of research expertise, we equip our graduates to stay relevant in a globalised technology-based economy, able to embark on multiple career pathways.
Our students have a solid academic foundation and acquire critical thinking, and problem solving skills to become high-level specialists working in various sectors of civil and environmental engineering. Imbued with a globalised outlook, our graduates can also opt for careers in multidisciplinary fields, including policy makers, entrepreneurs in engineering, as well as leaders of established multinational companies and various governing authorities.
