Civil Engineering

A balanced program that integrates foundational understanding of Engineering and Applied Sciences, with practical skills and knowledge that are adaptable to the present and future Engineering design challenges in the real world.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Civil Engineers conceive, design, build, supervise, operate, construct and maintain infrastructure projects and systems in the public and private sector, including roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and systems for water supply and sewage treatment.

Engineers work with many other professionals in teams to make our world a better place. Their work space may include different places, like offices and laboratories, far-flung or not so common sites or places others never get to go, such as underground and at sea! These opportunities make Civil Engineering one of the most exciting careers choices around.

  • Earthquake Engineers make sure structures can withstand earthquakes.
  • Environmental Engineers protect the environment and protect us from extreme weather.
  • Geo-technical 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.

A Degree in Civil Engineering covers a plethora of scientific topics, including, Mechanics, Hydraulics, Materials Science and Statistical Analysis. At the Chitkara University, the study of these foundation subjects will be complemented with the development of design skills, with computer-aided designs in particular. The final year will involve field trips and the conception of several personal or team projects, which will further play an important role to provide on-the-job training and real-life application of knowledge.

CAMPUS RECRUITMENT

A career in Civil Engineering is satisfying, challenging and offers promising prospects for upward progression. It is expected that the demand for Civil Engineers all over the world will only grow in the coming years. Engineering companies all over the world are in need of Civil Engineers to develop new technologies, build better buildings, create better cities, get people to where they want to go in the best way possible, and counter the devastating effects of climate change. In other words, to improve the future of the planet. This means that the Civil Engineers of tomorrow (you!) are in demand. With a good education and a positive attitude, you will be able to secure an exciting, well paying job that offers you opportunities to work at the cutting edge of your field, all over the globe.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

With Engineering, you can follow your interests both in what you do and where you do it- be it on a construction site, building, testing and monitoring developments or in a sport working as an Engineer to create world-class sporting venues. You can also make a difference in people’s everyday lives, and work in a team to rebuild a community following a natural disaster – or even prevent the disaster from happening in the first place! To help you achieve your dream, following are some learning outcomes that you can expect:

  • Make good decisions based on best practices, technical knowledge, and experience.
  • Balance multiple and frequently conflicting objectives, such as determining the feasibility of plans with regard to financial costs and safety concerns.
  • Develop leadership skills to take ultimate responsibility for the projects that you manage or research.
  • Use the principles of Calculus, Trigonometry, and other advanced topics in mathematics for analysis, design, and troubleshooting.
  • Monitor and evaluate the work at a job site by acquiring organisational skills.
  • Develop excellent problem solving skills – identify and evaluate complex problems – to manage planning, design, construction, and operation of multifaceted projects or research. Further, learn to use your skill and training to develop cost-effective, safe, and efficient solutions. Brush up your communication skills to present reports and plans to audiences with varied range of backgrounds and technical knowledge.
