Department of Civil Engineering

General:

Civil Engineering is about designing and constructing facilities that are essential for humans’ welfare, such as buildings we live in; roads that we use for commuting; bridges, tunnels for easy access; dams to produce energy; and many others. It is one of the earliest engineering disciplines that humanity has been practicing to develop civilization.

Mission:

Civil Engineering Program aims to educate the students to gain an understanding of the fundamentals of science and engineering through which they can develop solutions to Civil Engineering problems and enhance their solving, communication, and research skills. Teamwork, independent and innovative thinking and leadership qualities are especially aimed to be emphasized. In particular, the program aims to:

  • Prepare the students to be equipped with necessary theoretical background in basic sciences and engineering;
  • Train the students with the profound ability in reading, writing and oral communication skills;
  • Engage in practical experience to enable the students to utilize and enhance their engineering knowledge;
  • Develop students’ interpersonal skills and encourage team work and collaboration;
  • Promote self-discipline and confidence, and the ability to learn on their own;
  • Encourage the students towards contributing to the progress of science and technology;
  • Show and teach the importance of ethical behavior in social and professional life;
  • Share the knowledge firstly for the benefit of Cambodia and in general for the benefit and development of all humanity.

Graduate students for the engineering and business communities with integrity, motivation, judgment, ability and education to assume a pioneering and leadership role to meet the demanding challenges of the society;

Program:

In the first two years of the undergraduate program students enhance their knowledge in basic science and mathematics which provide with engineering fundamentals.  The study of engineering mechanics and materials which are fundamentals to civil engineering begins in the second year. The third and fourth years involve the study and application of the principles of structural engineering (analysis and design of reinforced concrete and steel structures), geotechnical engineering (behavior of soils, design of foundations), hydraulics engineering (flow of water in pipes, open channels, water resources), environmental engineering (pollution of our environment, collection and disposal of wastes), and the general systems approach to engineering problems. Students are also exposed to an introduction to construction management and economics which are essential to every practicing engineer.

Job opportunities:

Students graduating from Civil Engineering qualify for a responsible position in the industry in analysis, design and construction management. Prospective employers include, but are not limited to, construction contractors, consulting firms, industrial firms and various government agencies.

  • Local and regional consultants – Planning and designing projects, supervising the implementation of construction plans
  • Local and regional contractors – Organizing the execution of the designs on sites, overseeing labor force and materials, considering time, cost and safety precautions
  • Local and regional authorities – Being responsible for water, drainage, transport and highway systems
  • Academia – Pursuing an academic career at engineering departments of universities/institutions
  • Business – Running and managing a private construction company
