หลักสูตรระดับปริญญาตรี

The Department's curriculum is arranged to provide the students with broad educational and professional perception to enhance their effectiveness as practitioners and researchers in the field of modern civil engineering, which includes planning, analysis, design and construction of buildings, bridges, foundations, dams, hydraulic structures and transportation facilities. It contains courses in mathematics, related basic sciences, fundamentals of general engineering and specific civil engineering subjects. Besides, the students are required to fulfill selected courses in English humanities and social sciences so as to broaden their outlooks in their future careers.

Laboratories in various divisions and research units of the Department are set up to supplement classroom works and to facilitate advanced topics of study.

The Department of Civil Engineering offers study programs leading to Bachelor of Engineering. The undergraduate program takes 4 years with concentration in civil engineering, which requires 141 credits of course work.

The first two years of study for undergraduate students build the base needed for the civil engineering education: students take physics, math, chemistry, theoretical and applied mechanics, and some general engineering courses. Students can also take several electives at this time.

The last two years of study involve primarily civil engineering courses. Students can elaborate their major area of interest from the several approved elective course within the department.
