BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering

The everyday growing modern world requires civil engineers because their experience in planning, design, construction and maintenance in civil engineering projects is needed in order to build the infrastructure in daily life. Graduates from the civil engineering program should be able to possess technical, managerial, organizational, financial, communication, research and analytical skills. The SEGi University BEng (Hons) civil engineering degree builds students with basics of engineering and science, technical skills and needed knowledge, making students highly competent in civil engineering and creating strategies and managing complex projects.

Programme Objectives:

Graduates should be able to :
  1. Are employable in the global construction industry and other related fields of the Built Environment.
  2. Pursue post-graduate qualifications to satisfy a passion for research and life-long learning.
  3. Participate in continuous professional improvement leading to professional licensure.
Programme Learning Outcomes:
  1. Graduates are expected to demonstrate the following outcomes:
  2. Engineering Knowledge – Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialisation to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  3. Problem Analysis – Identify and analyse complex engineering problems, research literature and formulate substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
  4. Design/Development of Solutions – Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  5. Investigation – Conduct investigation into complex problems using research based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.
  6. Modern Tool Usage – Create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.
  7. The Engineer and Society – Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice.
