The Lateral Entry program enables candidates with a 3 years diploma in Engineering or an equivalent degree to get admitted directly to 2nd Year (3rd semester).

Introduction to Civil Engineering

Civil engineers design and build things that are part of our daily lives. They build our homes, schools, the places where we work, our roads, bridges, railways, and airports. They also build the things we don’t see that we use every day like the water system we use when we wash our hands or take a shower and the electricity system we use to power our computers and charge our mobile phones. They get rid of the things we throw away.

What do Civil Engineers do?

Civil engineers work in many different areas. Most importantly, civil engineers work with many other professionals in teams to make our world a better place.

  • Earthquake engineers make sure structures can withstand earthquakes.
  • Environmental engineers protect the environment and protect us from extreme weather.
  • Geotechnical engineers focus on the ground, which affects everything built on it (buildings), with it (dams
    and levees) and in it (tunnels and pipelines).
  • Project Management engineers make sure entire projects are delivered on time and on budget.
Where do Civil Engineers work?

If you want to be on a construction site, building, testing and monitoring developments then you can be. If you prefer to be in the office designing and problem solving then you can do that too. With engineering, you can follow your interests both in what you do and where you do it. If you are interested in sport you can work as an engineer to create amazing sporting venues.

If you want to make a difference in people’s everyday lives you can work in a team to rebuild a community following a natural disaster – or even prevent the disaster from happening in the first place. If design is your thing you can be part of the engineering team that overcomes technical challenges of building truly fabulous places.

Engineers work in lots of different places, like offices and laboratories, but also on sites that can be in exciting and far-flung places, or places others never get to go, such as underground and at sea. These opportunities make civil engineering one of the most exciting careers around!
