Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering

General

Program Description

Civil Engineers are involved in the preliminary design, planning, supervision and construction of technical works, which are important components for the smooth functioning of modern societies. Roads, dams, tunnels, bridges, highways, airports, railroads, buildings, housing, harbors, jetties, oil platforms, water and wastewater systems all objects of civil engineering. The BSc in Civil Engineering at the Neapolis University in Cyprus is designed to produce graduates who will be able to meet these challenges, building their future on solid foundations. The program offers each student knowledge and skills so as to enable them, upon completion of their studies, to enter the profession or to begin graduate studies.

The program provides a broad civil engineering curriculum that focuses on fundamental theory, mathematics, science, planning, design, and construction. These compulsory courses, along with proper electives, allow students to focus on particular fields of Civil Engineering. Electives on two directions will be offered initially, which is in Structural Engineering and Environmental Engineering, while electives on more directions will be offered later, as in Geotechnical Engineering, in Hydraulics, in Coastal Engineering, and in Transportation Engineering. Students will have the opportunity to design technical projects taking into account factors such as economy, environment, society, politics, ethics, health, safety, and sustainability and to become acquainted with several aspects of professional practice.

Career Prospects

The civil engineering profession is very demanding, competitive and rapidly evolving, and yet offers great job opportunities and high salaries. Graduates of Civil Engineers may be employed and to have a career in private construction companies, public or semi-public organizations or to start their own company.

Entry Requirements

High School Diploma, sufficient marks in Mathematics and Physics, interview.

“Based on my long experience in the development and application of high-tech systems in various fields of engineering, today I am deeply convinced that if their full integration into the construction industry is deemed necessary, their use is imperative and irreplaceable even in the early stages of educating future engineers.” Dr. John Bellos – Assοciate Professor of Structural Design and Construction Technology
