Message from the Head of Division

Civil Engineering is the application of scientific principles and theories to the design and construction of the infrastructure that makes modern society possible. This includes buildings, roads, bridges, dams, harbours, canals, pipelines, airports, and much more.

The Division of Civil Engineering encompasses all aspects of classic Civil Engineering, including Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering and Hydraulics and Coastal Engineering.

In our teaching as well as in our research, we emphasize modern methods and approaches such as building information modelling, numerical modelling, simulation, and other digital technologies, all with the aim of equipping our students with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in an ever-changing industry. 

We hope you will enjoy your visit to the Division of Civil Engineering.  Please be sure to contact us with any questions.
