Civil Engineering

(Certified Builder)

Course Code: 081001

The Objective 

The Course of Civil Engineering (Certified Builder) is designed to cultivate students with theories and knowledges, regulations and practices, and technology and skills in relation to the design, construction, decoration and commissioning of civil engineering projects such as railways, highways, houses, bridges, tunnels and underground works and develop students to be a nationally certified builder.

Knowledge, Skills and Capabilities

Students who complete the Course will be able to acquire, appreciate and apply the theories and knowledges, regulations and practices, and technology and skills to civil engineering that are required to be a certified builder. 


The Course contains the theories and practices in structural mechanics, material mechanics, structural mechanics, building materials, architectural drawing, soil mechanics and foundation, concrete structure, concrete structure design, steel structure design, building structure aseismics as well as the technologies and skills in the analysis and design of engineering structure, construction technology and management, engineering economic analysis and engineering measurement, and project management and engineering supervision.

Core Units 

First Year: Engineering Drawing, Mechanical Theories, Building Materials, Introduction to Civil Engineering, Engineering Economics, Material Mechanics, Housing Architecture 

Second Year: Engineering Surveying, Architectural Drawing and CAD, Structural Mechanics, Civil Engineering Construction Technology, Building Physics, Soil Mechanics and Foundation, Concrete Structure Principles, Civil Engineering Construction 

Third Year: Engineering Project Management, Concrete Structure Design, Pprinciples of Steel Structure, Construction Engineering Measurement and Evaluation, Contract Management and Bidding, Bridge Engineering, Engineering Project Management, Concrete Structure Design, Principles of Steel Structure
