Civil Engineering Programme Area (Degree)

Introduction

The undergraduate programmes in Civil Engineering and Civil & Structural Engineering have been developed to address the increasing and evolving requirements for qualified civil engineers in Brunei Darussalam. Each programme contains elements of both theoretical and practical nature, and emphasises on producing quality graduates equipped with sound analytical, problem-solving and transferrable skills necessary to embark on a successful career in civil engineering or other related profession.

The programmes also include a period of industrial placement between the third and fourth year. This industrial placement aims to provide a platform for the students to gain valuable workplace experience under the guidance of an industry mentor.

Undergraduate Courses
Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Civil Engineering (E101)

Civil Engineering involves the planning, design, construction, management, maintenance, and operation of much of the infrastructure that surrounds us and underpins modern civilisation. Examples of such infrastructure includes buildings, roads, bridges, tunnels, dams, towers, pipelines, retaining walls, sewers, wastewater treatment plants, drainage, flood control and water supply. The BEng (Hons) programme in Civil Engineering develops essential knowledge of engineering principles and enables their application towards the solution of civil engineering problems, with the aim of improving the quality of life of all in the society.

Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Civil and Structural Engineering (E103)

The BEng (Hons) programme in Civil and Structural Engineering aims to further develop the knowledge and skills of students in the engineering of structures and buildings in addition to fundamental civil infrastructure. This is achieved through a greater emphasis on analytical and design modules in structural engineering, as well as final year research and design projects focussing on structural engineering. This programme prepares graduates to meet the challenges of the 21st century civil and structural engineering, which includes the design and construction of sustainable structures, serviceability of structures, and development and use of innovative materials, processes and practices. The programme also furthers the education base of graduates enabling them to contribute towards research and development in civil & structural engineering and related fields.

Careers and Further Studies

Career opportunities are available in a wide range of organisations such as in public works, consulting and construction companies, civil aviation, roads and transportation authorities, environmental protection authorities. Furthermore, graduates are equipped with fundamental problem-solving and numeracy skills which enable them to adapt to the challenges of working in many industries as well as in research and development.
