Civil Engineering Program

  • Introduction of the Field

Technology & Engineering Program aims to train specialists able to design, plan, execute, & supervise projects concerning buildings, roads, bridges, high-rise buildings, water and water-related constructions, disposal of waste, sewers, & projects related to the environment. This program typically demonstrates the impact of modern technology on constructions in generally and developmental processes. Most of the work areas that impact the prosperity of a region are part of this program: such as dams, airports, roads, tower, tunnels, communication towers, earthquake- flood- fire-resistant buildings, light-material power generators safe for the environment. The civil engineer is the specialist who decides the technical, financial, and execution of a project whether private, administrative, or industrial. Summarized in simple words, the civil engineer has to accomplish a project while considering safety, esthetic, and cost effectiveness.

  • Profile needed for a civil engineer candidate

A civil engineer needs strong social and communication skills, since in order to complete successfully a project, the civil engineer needs to positively interact with construction workers, technicians, & other specialists. A civil engineer shall possess a strong basic scientific knowledge especially in mathematics and physics. Other factors to be considered are related to the fact that a project in civil engineering has three facets: design, computing, and execution. Those involved with the implementation of projects, should possess physical aptitude and strength to work either in- or out of town workstations. Those involved with the design are strong in computing and mathematics

In summary, a civil engineering candidate needs the following abilities:

  • Physical strength
  • Analytical concepts
  • Visual projection & imagination
  • Concern with details
  • Decision making skills
  • Familiarity with market & prices, and current regulations
  • Familiarity with computing software and statistical analysis
  • Familiarity with cost estimations and statements
  • Familiarity with principles of modern mapping- surveying
  • Ability for critical analysis of financial issues and familiarity with current and conventional regulations for the market forces in the Country.
