Bachelor of Science (Eng) in Civil Engineering
The Department of Civil Engineering offers a 4-year Bachelor of Science (Eng) in Civil Engineering.
Students learn about the various civil engineering areas during lectures and also have practical sessions in labs. These involve the investigation of the properties of various construction materials, soil behaviour and foundation design, behaviour of structural members under different loads, water quality and waste treatment.
During vacations students are expected to do practical training involving both site work and design office experience. The course also includes a survey camp covering basic survey operations and the preparation of a site plan.
This degree is accredited by the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) and recognised throughout the world in terms of the Washington Accord.
