About the Programme
1. Structural Engineering
Structural Engineers face the challenge of designing structures that support their own weight and the loads they carry these structures should be in a position to resist extreme forces from wind earthquakes bombings temperature and others. Bridges buildings amusement park rides and many other kinds of projects are included within this specialty. Structural Engineers develop appropriate combinations of steel concrete timber plastic and new exotic materials. They also plan and design and visit project sites to make sure works is done properly.
2. Environmental Engineering
The skills of Environmental Engineers have become increasingly important as we protect our fragile resources. Environmental Engineers translate physical chemical and biological processes into systems to destroy toxic substances remove pollutants from water reduce nonÂ¬-hazardous solid waste volumes eliminate contaminants from the air and develop groundwater supplies. Environmental Engineers are called upon to resolve the problems of providing safe drinking water cleaning up contaminated sites with hazardous materials disposing of wastewater and managing solid wastes.
3. Geotechnical Engineering
Geotechnical Engineering is required in all aspects of Civil Engineering because most projects are supported by the ground. A Geotechnical Engineer may develop projects below the ground such as tunnels foundations and offshore platforms. They analyse the properties of soil and rock that support and affect the behaviour of these structures. They evaluate potential settlements of buildings stability of slopes and fills seepage of ground water and effects of earthquakes. They investigate rocks and soils at a project site and determine the best way to support a structure in the ground. They also take part in the design and construction of dams embankments and retaining walls.
4. Water Resources Engineering
Water is essential to our lives and water resources engineers deal with the physical control of water. They work with others to prevent floods supply water for cities industries and agriculture to protect beaches or to manage and redirect rivers. They design construct and maintain hydroelectric power facilities canals dams and pipelines pumping stations locks seaport facilities or even waterslides.
5. Transportation Engineering
The quality of a community is directly related to the quality of its transportation system. Transportation Engineers work to move people goods and materials safely and efficiently. They find ways to meet our ever-increasing travel needs on land air and sea. They design construct and maintain all types of transportation facilities including airports highways railroads mass transit systems and ports. An important part of Transportation Engineering is upgrading our transportation capability by improving traffic control and mass transit systems and by introducing high  speed trains people movers and other intermodal transportation methods.
6. Construction Engineering
The construction phase of a project represents the first tangible result of a design. Using technical and management skills Construction Engineers turn designs into reality   on time and within budget. They apply their knowledge of construction methods and equipment along with the principles of financing planning and managing to turn the designs of other Engineers into successful facilities.
7. Urban and Community Planning
Planners are concerned with the full development of a community. They analyse a variety of information to co-ordinate projects such as projecting street patterns identifying park and recreation areas and determining areas for industrial and residential growth. They employ their technical and people skills to co-ordinate with other authorities to integrate freeways airports and other related facilities.
