Civil Engineering Technology

Civil Engineering and Construction is the largest engineering industry in the United Arab Emirates. The rapid expansion of the country’s infrastructure and the high level of expenditure in this sector requires a well trained, local workforce, that is capable of meeting the demands of this rapidly expanding industry. The Department of Civil Engineering at Abu Dhabi Men’s College offers quality education to young U.A.E. nationals providing both the practical and theoretical skills necessary to function at various levels within the industry. Having completed both the academic and work experience requirements, graduating students are able to take up employment as engineers and technologists in both the private and public sectors.

Bachelor of Applied Science in Civil Engineering

The Bachelor of Applied Science in Civil Engineering Technology program prepares students for positions as engineers and technologists with the technical and managerial skills necessary to enter careers in the planning, design, construction, operation or maintenance of the built environment and global infrastructures. Graduates will have the ability to analyze and design systems , specify project methods and materials, perform cost estimates and analyses, and manage technical activities in support of civil engineering projects.

Duration: 4 years after completing the foundation

  • Work experience and graduation project

Opportunities for graduates

There is an increasing demand for our graduates from a wide variety of employers including; Municipalities, Public Works Departments, UAE Armed Forces, Oil companies, , Etisalat, ADWEA, Department of Transport, ADDC, Contracting and Consulting Engineering Firms, etc.

Bachelor of Applied Science in Transportation Engineering

The Bachelor of Applied Science in Transportation Engineering is a Department of Transport (DoT) sponsored program. The principle objective of this program is to develop UAE nationals who can assist the DoT to achieve its objectives for the transport sector. As transportation is one of the specializations of civil engineering, the BAS in transportation engineering has considerable commonality with the BAS in civil engineering.
