Bachelor of Civil Engineering with Honours

Civil engineering is the scientific study of the design and construction of structures such as buildings, industrial infrastructures, roads and bridges. This profession focuses on the real-world and societal applications of technical knowledge (such as mathematics and physical sciences, as well as their applications to all areas of civil engineering). The majority of fieldwork entails the planning, design, construction and maintenance of public infrastructure or systems. 

Bachelor of Civil Engineering with Honours aims to produce graduates who can acquire and apply knowledge of science and engineering fundamentals, have in-depth technical competence in the civil engineering discipline to undertake problem identification, formulation and solution, and have the ability to design and evaluate operational performance using a systems approach.

Students are introduced to the current design software used and the nest practice of the industry at the early stage and will apply them in the form of assignments and integrated design projects. These technologies include Autodesk Revit, SCIA, & Building Information Modelling/Management (BIM) softwares.  

Brunsfield set up an endowment chair of RM1.25 million to facilitate research and teaching activities in construction in the department. In addition Research activities are enhanced through the collaborative research with Ken Holdings Bhd in developing green technology for housing.
