China Universities Civil Engineering

An overview:

Civil engineering is a branch of engineering that deals with the design and construction of the artifacts of civil use: civil and industrial constructions, transportation infrastructure, bridges and tunnels, hydro-technical utilities such as dams, aqueducts and sewage systems, structures in seismically areas and others. Civil engineering combines the knowledge of mathematics, physics, project management, architecture and design among others. Students can specialize in a variety of sub-disciplines like: construction engineering, environmental engineering, water resource engineering, earthquake engineering, coastal engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, materials engineering or urban engineering.

What do Civil Engineers learn?

The Civil Engineering program is designed to educate technical professionals who have a solid foundation, all-round professional knowledge and a good command of design, construction and management of building engineering. Special emphasis is put on innovation, project management, team work and practical capabilities in addition to training of foundation knowledge. The Civil Engineering program provides graduates with a strong foundation for a career in engineering, together with plan, design, research, construction, and management skills which may be applied in a wide variety of industries.

Following a Bachelor’s degree or Master’s degree in civil engineering and construction, students will develop technical, organizational, problem solving, math skills, as they will learn how to use design software to plan and design transportation systems, hydraulic systems, and structures in line with industry and government standards; they should be able to determine the economic feasibility of a project and make cost estimates for materials and equipment used in the entire project.


Studying Civil Engineering in China:

       As the years passed by, China modernized the education system by building state-of-the-art universities. Today, around 600 of China's roughly 3000 universities are enrolling students from around the world. As China's economy continues to develop, coming to China to study has become increasingly popular. In 2009, there were about 240,000 international students studying in China. As China's higher education system boasts a strong reputation worldwide, similarly China's manufacturing industries are renowned for their international competitiveness. Chinese university graduates are welcomed by leading universities in North America, Europe, Japan, Australia and other countries. These facts further prove studying civil engineering in China will be hands-on experience worth remembering.
