At the third and fourth year, the programme offers specialisation in one of its major streams:
- structural engineering
- municipal engineering/transportation
- construction management
Within this stream you will be specialising in the design of concrete, steel and timber structures. Graduates of this stream will have an opportunity to complement the work of architects in designing large buildings and sky scrapers.
Structural engineers can work in:
- bridge design
- highway structures
- hydraulic structures
- oil, gas and mineral exploration
- utilisation facilities
Within this stream, students will specialise in municipal/transportation engineering.
Municipal engineers are responsible of specifying, designing, constructing and maintaining:
- public walkways
- water supplies and drainage networks
- waste management systems
- town planning and subdivision
Transportation engineers are responsible for designing, testing and improving transportation systems to avoid traffic congestion and ensure easy flow of traffic through the network.
Within this stream, you will learn more about managing construction projects.
Construction Engineers are often required in the planning, construction and management of large infrastructure projects such as:
- ports and dams
- complex building projects
During the last semester, students will engage in a major project. The project could be a real life project from industry or a simulated one. Students are required to progress through the steps of formalising client requirements, developing specifications, conducting literature surveys, develop an optimised solutions, detailed design and evaluations.
