Civil Engineering Diploma For KSA
The current civil engineering curriculum is best visualized by referring to the relevant flow sheet showing courses by semester and pre or co-requisites. The curricular plan can be viewed in the UB undergraduate catalog. In addition to the foundational courses in math and science, students are exposed to all areas of civil engineering.
The department aims to produce competent engineers who can work in the society, both as field professionals and academic researchers. The department also aspires to produce engineers who are able to integrate theories and practices of Civil Engineering being exposed to the contemporary issues in the industries.
If you study civil engineering at undergraduate level, you’ll learn to apply mathematics and scientific knowledge (particularly physics) to real-life situations and problems that arise from creating and maintaining structures, taking into account environmental, financial, legal and ethical considerations.
At its core, civil engineering is a combination of many scientific specialists, including mechanics, hydraulics, geotechnics (using knowledge of the earth’s crust to solve construction problems), materials science and statistical analysis. As such, study of these foundational elements will feature heavily in the early years of civil engineering degrees.
As well as the more scientific side, those who study civil engineering will get to develop their design skills, particularly computer-aided design. Project work is central to the subject, meaning that in the latter years of your degree you will be able to complete your own design projects individually or within a team.
Undergraduate civil engineering degrees will typically be three or four years in length and will feature a mixture of lectures and lab work. There will also be an emphasis on working within a team, as this is considered a key skill for anyone pursuing civil engineering careers.
Those who study civil engineering may also have opportunities to participate in field trips and complete industry placements, either as a ‘year in industry’ or for shorter periods.
