What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering is a three-year direct honours degree programme jointly offered by SIT and the University of Glasgow.

This programme will play an important role in addressing the lack of local graduate manpower with the necessary civil engineering professional qualifications for the building and construction industry in the face of sustained building and infrastructure development. With a strong emphasis on project-based learning and industrial immersion, this programme aims to produce industry-ready graduates who are equipped with a high level of technical expertise to address multidisciplinary challenges, provide technically sound, economically feasible and sustainable solutions for complex problems.

The Bachelor of Engineering with Honours and Master of Science programmes aim to produce work-ready graduates armed with the following:

To be technically competent and industry-ready for a successful career in the civil engineering profession.

To acquire analytical, problem-solving and lifelong learning skills to manage civil engineering projects in a rapidly changing world.

To address multidisciplinary challenges and to provide technically sound, economically feasible and sustainable solutions.

To lead in their profession, community and public service with effective communication, high ethical, and professional standards.

Upon successful completion of this programme, students may continue with the Master of Science in Civil Engineering graduate degree that will qualify them to apply to sit for the professional examination, conducted by the Professional Engineers Board of Singapore. They may take the exam immediately upon completion of their bachelor’s degree or gain some relevant working experience before coming back to pursue the Master of Science degree later. In this way, they can study at a pace that best suits their individual needs and abilities. A strong emphasis is placed on the industrial relevance in the curriculum development of Bachelor of Engineering with Honours and Master of Science programmes in consultation with government agencies and companies from the construction sector.

Students will acquire deep specialist training at the Master of Science level which consists of five compulsory core modules and five selected modules taught at an advanced graduate level depending on the area of specialisation in Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering or Rail Engineering.
