About the Programme

The Civil Engineering degree programme at UCSI University is designed to cater to today’s modern world needs and respond to society’s escalating demands for a better quality of life. This programme focuses on the development of theoretical concepts, practical engineering skills and teamwork, comprising a wide range of relevant courses – including structural analysis and design, geotechnical study, hydrology and hydraulic, highway and traffic, water and sewer systems – that also emphasises management skills and economics, at the same time.
 
The primary objective of the engineering programme at UCSI University is to develop creative and well-trained individuals who are able to communicate fluently and coherently, demonstrate awareness of financial and ethical constraints, use their engineering knowledge and skills to critically and creatively evaluate situations or projects, and solve engineering problems. The programme is suited for undergraduate students who combine intellectual talents with a creative, innovative and practical outlook – students who seek a wide variety of opportunities and challenges during their university course and later on in their careers as well as those who wish to further develop their skills to effect change and improve the environment on a local and global scale.
 
In this programme, students are also required to undergo industrial training under UCSI University’s Co-Operative Placement (Co-Op) Programme at the end of their 2nd and 3rd academic years - to learn from industry leaders and familiarize themselves with the actual working environment. Towards the end of their course of study, students will undertake a one-semester capstone project to assess and gauge their understanding of their learning and the outcome of their formal education. They will also undertake a research and development project in their final year of study.

Programme Details

In this programme, students are also required to undergo industrial training under UCSI University’s Co-Operative Placement (Co-Op) Programme in the third semester of each year to learn from and familiarise themselves with the real life working environment. Towards the end of the course of study, students will undertake a two-semester final year project to assess their understanding and the outcome of their formal education.

All of UCSI University’s engineering degree programmes comply with the latest requirements for accreditation by the Malaysian Engineering Accreditation Council, which fulfils the international requirements drafted in the Washington Accord.

Career Opportunities

Civil Engineers plan, design, construct and maintain buildings, airports, harbours, roads, railways, bridges, and tunnels among others. Thus, Civil Engineers play a very important role in shaping and controlling the environment (e.g. water and waste, floods and irrigation, traffic management).

This programme is excellent preparation for a career in Civil Engineering as it encompasses specialisations such as structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, hydrology and hydraulic engineering, highway and traffic engineering, water and waste water engineering, and project management. Graduates of the programme would be equipped for almost any profession that requires good analytical and professional skills. Common work avenues for Civil Engineers include working with construction companies, consulting companies, property developers, project management companies, water supply companies, research organisations, oil and gas companies as well as offshore industries, and other companies that deal with structure or infrastructure development and maintenance. Alternatively, graduates of the programme can explore careers options in relevant government departments such as the public works department, the highway department, as well as the department of drainage and irrigation, among others.
