The civil major at CIC provides a various number of courses in different civil disciplines, that teach students to highlight and solve problems, and improve the built environment, consequently, preparing them for the professional field.
1. To set solid foundations for mastering civil engineering principles through deep understanding of basic sciences and mathematics.
2. To deliver an up-to-date academic curriculum in accordance with international standards in the field of Civil Engineering.
3. Developing and enabling the students to promote their problem solving, critical thinking, creative thinking, and decision-making skills.
4. Providing an educational environment that enables students to achieve their goals in a program that supports their ability to understand and innovate by conducting experiments, analysis and simulations then evaluating them to draw conclusions.
5. Develop the competencies (acquired skills) of students for successful entrance in the general civil engineering profession as practicing engineers, consultants with prominent companies and institutions in various fields. This includes; structural engineering, transportation, geotechnical, materials, environment, water resources engineering, and construction management with emerging areas including sustainability, resilience, and risk.
6. Prepare an engineer who can compete on both local and international scales and has the professional competencies (acquired skills) necessary to meet the needs of the work market.
7. Serving the community and the civil engineering profession by engaging in community and professional organizations.
8. Educate the new generation of Civil Engineers with the skills, knowledge, and attitudes required to practice civil engineering and solve the problems facing an ever-changing society on both national and international scales.
9. Use the techniques, skills, and appropriate engineering tools, necessary for engineering practice and project management.
10. Supply the work market with graduates who can; participate with valuable and various Civil Engineering services, right after graduation.
What will I learn?
The Civil Engineering major offered by the Institute of Engineering at CIC aims to develop the academic and professional capabilities of the students and train them to be able to work in all areas of civil engineering. This field of study is considered the oldest professions in history. It includes a wide range of disciplines: (1) Structural engineering and construction, (2) Public works engineering and (3) Hydraulic and water resources engineering. Graduation requirements: civil engineering students need to achieve 170 CHS to earn a Bachelor in civil engineering.
Here is a glimpse of what students will study upon choosing Civil Engineering, hence defines the job description per discipline:
• Structural engineering discipline aims to build safe structures with better quality and save costs. The discipline includes the design and execution of buildings and other civil facilities such as bridges, dams, tunnels and facilities of private nature: such as tall buildings.
• Public works discipline is intended to provide infrastructure work related to civil engineering with environmental goals and environmental protection systems. It teaches space geodesy and Photogrammetry, land information systems and remote sensing. Transportation planning, traffic engineering of railways and Highways, traffic engineering and airports, health and environmental engineering.
• Water Resources Engineering and Hydraulics discipline aims to study the water behavior in open channels and design pump stations and all other irrigation facilities. Also, this discipline teaches groundwater, and irrigation and drainage canals.
“The program of civil engineering in the Canadian higher institute of technology, engineering, and management is committed to preparing a distinguished graduate by providing an educational program consistent with the national academic reference standards to ensure the acquisition of civil engineering competencies and ethics through educational techniques, and the ability to conduct research to meet the requirements of our profession, societal needs, and develop entrepreneurship skills. The program instills in its graduates how to deal with academic/professional challenges using a creative manner in an ethical and moral domain.”
“The Civil Engineering Program at the Canadian Higher Institute of Technology, Engineering, and Management in the Fifth Settlement seeks leadership and excellence on local, regional and international levels.
The Civil Engineering program study plan aims to develop the academic and professional efficiency of students and train them for work in all Civil Engineering fields.
