While studying Civil Engineering, you're learning to design and build complex infrastructures such as transportation systems, water supply networks, and energy systems. You’ll develop important skills to create reliable structures and sustainable communities.
These skills may include:
- Analysis, design, and assessment of physical structures such as buildings, roads, bridges, dams, and their foundations
- Development of construction plans and schedules that meet specific building codes and regulations
- Conducting feasibility tests, capacity assessments, and environmental impact studies to determine project requirements and identify potential technical risks and public safety issues
- Carrying out geotechnical investigations relating to slope stability, preferential flow, liquefaction, settlement, seepage and deformation, etc.
- Ability to work in multi-disciplinary teams to plan, design, and construct municipal water, stormwater, and wastewater systems and facilities
- Technical skills to perform air, water, and soil quality audits, and analyze topographic, soil, and hydrological field data
- Usage of a wide range of computational tools and software including S-Frame, MATLAB, Excel VBA, Python, CAD, and EPANET
