WHY CIVIL ENGINEERING?
Civil Engineers are highly demanded in Singapore. In fact, Civil engineering is vital to Singapore’s drive to creating a better built environment and liveable city. The development of mega infrastructure projects as well as re-shaping Singapore’s city landscape will require highly qualified engineers trained in civil discipline. As we build higher and dig deeper underground, there is high prospects for Civil Engineers^ to design, plan, build, manage and oversee the development of infrastructure/building projects.
This degree programme is designed to allow both GCE 'A' level and diploma graduates a pathway to pursue a rewarding career in the built environment.
