Possession to Know

What Is Civil Engineering ?

Civil engineering is a broad discipline that encompasses studies on structures and the natural resources such as water, soil and the environment. It is also considered as an important technological discipline towards the betterment of mankind.

The faculty offers an undergraduate programme which is recognized by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA). The undergraduate programme is implemented to encompass four (4) thrust areas, which are :-

Structures and Materials

Civil engineering materials, mechanics of materials, dynamics and static, theory and design of structures and buildings, contract and estimation, principles an practices of construction and management.

Geotechnic & Transportation

Soil mechanics, foundation engineering and materials, geology, highway design and planning, traffic and transportation.

Hydraulics & Hydrology

Fluid mechanics and designs of surface and underground water resources system, dams, sewerage systems, water reticulation & drainage and irrigation, offshore, port and hydraulic structures.

Environmental

Monitoring and control of environmental qualities, drinking water, waste water, disposal and solid wastes, thus, ensuring the natural resources is utilised in a manner that guarantees the well being of mankind and environmental stability.

These thrust areas pave the way into the applications of information technology in civil engineering, for instance, the use of computer in analysis, the design and development of software and sub-routines in solving various civil engineering problems.

  2. International student (https://admission.utm.my/entry-requirements-ug-international/)

Career as a civil engineer spans across a multitude of disciplines compared to other engineering fields. The services and expertise of a civil engineer are required when constructing amenities for the well-being of mankind as well as the preservation and rehabilitation of the environment. Amongst the major duties of a civil engineer include studying, planning, analysing, designing, constructing and maintaining infrastructure systems and buildings. Infrastructure systems can be defined to include roads and highways, airports, ports, bridges, traffic management, water supply, water treatment and sewerage, water resources management such as irrigation, drainage and the construction of dams. Meanwhile, building constructions encompass housing projects, skyscrapers and mega-buildings, off-shore structures and other systems utilised by mankind. Civil engineers are needed in virtually all public sectors that are involved with construction projects and maintenance of the aforementioned systems. As for the private sector, career opportunities for a civil engineer are aplenty. Civil engineering and project management firms, architects and contractors are among the many examples where the services of civil engineers are needed.

Many civil engineering graduates from UTM manage to secure positions in their final semester of studies. The record shows that, 90% of UTM’s civil engineering graduates are offered jobs within six months after the completion of their studies while the rest, within a year.

In the future, a civil engineer would have a bright prospect in tandem with the nation’s rapid development. In 2007, the construction industry provided more than 800,000 job opportunities in civil engineering. In order to achieve the nation’s aspirations in becoming a developed country, more civil engineers are needed to spearhead the nation’s construction industry.
