What do Civil/Environmental Engineers do?
Upon graduation, you are able to be involved in various engineering fields and environments. As a civil/environmental engineer, you build the world’s infrastructure. You erect structures, both modest and magnificent, bring fresh water to the masses, dispose or recycle the wastes they generate, and move people and goods safely and efficiently from one location to another.
In the new millennium, civil / environmental engineers will be challenged to find the best solutions to the most pressing problems of society and there will be many opportunities to apply sophisticated technologies to meet society’s needs in an environmentally sustainable manner.
You can look forward to a wide range of career prospects in fields such as infrastructure planning and development, construction technology, seismic and protective engineering, structural project procurement and management, water resources engineering, environmental technologies development, water and wastewater treatment, wastewater reclamation and reuse, membrane technologies, and desalination and resource recovery.
For those who aim to pursue postgraduate degrees in Civil and Environmental Engineering, we offer graduate programmes leading to the award of Master degree as well as Doctor of Philosophy degree. The Master degree can be undertaken by research or by courseworl and dissertation, while the Doctor of Philosophy degree is by research only.
