Masters in Civil Engineering & Construction

Civil engineering is a branch of engineering that deals with the design and construction of the artefacts of civil use: civil and industrial constructions, transportation infrastructure, bridges and tunnels, hydro-technical utilities such as dams, aqueducts and sewage systems, structures in seismically areas and others. Civil engineering integrates knowledge of mathematics, physics, project management, architecture and design among others. Students can specialise in a variety of sub-disciplines like: construction engineering, environmental engineering, water resource engineering, earthquake engineering, coastal engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, materials engineering or urban engineering.

Following a Bachelor’s degree or Master’s degree in civil engineering and construction, students will develop technical, organisational, problem solving, math skills, as they will learn how to use design software to plan and design transportation systems, hydraulic systems, and structures in line with industry and government standards; they should be able to determine the economic feasibility of a project and make cost estimates for materials and equipment used in the entire project.

Civil engineering and construction graduates usually find jobs like: building control surveyor, consulting civil engineer, structural engineer, water engineer, engineering geologist, transportation engineer, infrastructure project engineer.
