HIGHER DIPLOMA IN CIVIL ENGINEERING (CONSTRUCTION)  

PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

The programme covers the Civil Engineering (Construction) disciplines of building structures, structural elements, designing of reinforced concrete, steel construction and technology applied in contemporary construction methods. Modern construction industry requires civil engineers with extensive understanding of basic civil engineering core in order to achieve the project objectives within all constraints.  Moreover, the local industry is in demand for those engineers who have acquired specialist technical knowledge and practical skills with a professional qualification. The program aims to develop the Construction industry by educating students to perform competently in the dynamic environment and especially to focus on higher productivity, buildability, safety and sustainable issues. The core curriculum focuses on the designing and execution of the Construction (Civil) Engineering process and roles of the civil engineers. The main topic range covers from the Basic Engineering modules to the RC & Steel Construction, Structural Analysis and Construction Technology.  Upon completion of this programme, the students are equipped with the Engineering knowledge in the field of civil and construction especially designing, planning and construction. Eligible to work for Contractors, Consultant or Management level and manage the site effectively and efficiently. Ready to solve and make decisions for the technical issues that arises in the Construction Site.
