BSc Eng (Hons) in Civil Engineering


Civil Engineering is the professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and built environment necessary for the benefit and welfare of our society. It is concerned with such works as buildings, roads, railways, bridges, dams, reservoirs, tunnels, waterways, underground and super structures & ports & off-shore structures.

The SLIIT civil engineering degree in Sri Lanka is an excellent blend of scientific and civil engineering fundamentals and the practical skills essential to begin effective professional practice on graduation. The first two years of the programme are primarily concerned with developing a foundation in mathematics, science, basic engineering sciences, and practical skills essential to pursue studies in the field of civil engineering. The third year includes applied engineering units in structural analysis and design, materials, geotechnical engineering, construction engineering, hydraulics and professional practice. The final year covers subjects relating to construction management, industrial relations, contract law, cost estimation and finance.

Students may also use final year to pursue further study within a range of specialized options including:

  • Structural Engineering (SE)
  • Geotechnical Engineering (GE)
  • Transportation Engineering (TE)
  • Water & Environmental Engineering (WE)

The problem and project based learning is a key feature of the program. These learning techniques will enhance creative, innovative and team work skills of the students. The course includes project work based on laboratory, library and field work and partial assessment completed through seminars. Students undergo a compulsory six months industrial training at the end of the second and third year of study with a duration of three months each. Graduates can find employment in construction companies, specialist subcontractors, engineering consulting companies and government authorities. Further, engineering may also establish their own consulting practice in their field of expertise and the professional competence. Graduate engineers have skills readily transferable between employers and may also find work internationally.
