[N/526/6/0035] [6/18] [MQA/FA3575]


Programme Overview  |  中文

The Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Hons) is one of the pioneer programmes being offered by School of Engineering and Technology (SEngTech) in 2013, along with the formation of University College of Technology Sarawak (UCTS).

The Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Hons) encompasses a wide range of disciplines, covering the fields of engineering such as structures, materials, hydraulics, geotechnical, highway and surveying. It nurtures among the graduates engineering knowledge, analytical and problem solving skills, as well as the other technical and soft skills.

The curriculum is in sync with current development of the construction industry and engineering practices, particularly in the aspects of structural design and consultancies, construction technologies, usage of modern tools and technical software and project management approaches. The laboratory works, covering the mentioned fields of engineering, further equip students with practical and investigative skills.

Careers In Civil Engineering

Civil Engineers deal with construction management which include planning, design, construction and maintenance of built environment. They are in constant demand, mainly from the consultant firms, constructors, developers, local council, public work department, drainage and irrigation department, utilities companies, authorities, engineering product manufacturers, research institutions and others. In the context of Sarawak, catalyzed by Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) the demand for Civil Engineers increases further.


Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Hons) fulfills the requirements by Malaysian Quality Agency (MQA) and Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC), allowing graduates (with work experience) to register as professional engineers under the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM).
