Why choose to study this program?

BEng in Civil Engineering is a new degree programme just opened in 2009. Currently, China is witnessing its fast economic development, as well as unprecedentedly rapid urbanization and industrialization. The largest civil engineering construction is on the progress across China. In opening this Civil Engineering programme, XJTLU will make full use of the great opportunity of civil engineering development in China to educate high-level technical professionals who have an international outlook and be proficient in English that can meet the requirements of the industrial development.

The Civil Engineering programme 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. The programme structure of Civil Design is equivalent to that at the University of Liverpool. Special emphasis is put on innovation, project management, team work and practical capabilities in addition to training of foundation knowledge. The Civil Engineering programme provides graduates with a strong foundation for a career in engineering, together with quantitative and transferable skills which may be applied in a wide variety of industries.  During your studies, you will be introduced to both the theory and practice of design and construction.

By the time you graduate, you should:
be able to undertake a civil engineering design project, given clearly defined requirements and constraints;
understand the principles of project management and be able to allocate project resources effectively;
understand and be able to apply modern construction practices;
be able to critically apply a range of qualitative and quantitative  techniques relevant to the analysis and solution of civil engineering problems.

What will I study? 

At level 1, you will be introduced to core subjects, which are essential for all civil engineers:
design principles
engineering mathematics
solids and structures
mechanics and thermodynamics

Level 2 will help to develop your knowledge further and to apply this to practical design and construction projects through the study of:
engineering structures
reinforced concrete and steel
soil mechanics
water resources
project management
highway and traffic engineering
construction materials
integrated design

In the final year, you will undertake an independent research project in the form of an individual investigation and report.  Alongside your independent research, you will continue to build upon your technical and management skills through the study of:

foundation engineering

dynamic systems
finite element method
structural steelwork, timber and masonry
structural design and planning, and
urban waste water treatment

Main Courses
Theoretical Mechanics, Material Mechanics, Structural Mechanics, Engineering Survey, Civil Engineering Materials, Concrete Structure, Principal Theory of Steel Structure, Geotechnical Engineering, Geology, Foundation Engineering, Bridge and Tunneling, Traffic Engineering, Civil Engineering Construction, Engineering Economy and Project Management
Internship and Career Development

Graduates are typically employed as graduate trainees within major civil engineering consultancies, contracting organisations, utility companies, etc.  Some graduates will use their analytical, communications, management, business and IT skills, to pursue a career outside the engineering profession. The programme also provides a sound basis for further graduate study in the field of engineering.
