Civil Engineering

Civil engineers improve the quality of life through the design and construction of roads, bridges, tunnels, sewerage and water supply systems, hydro-electric power projects, river and harbour works, soil conservation, structural drafting and drawing, site investigation, sampling and testing, geotechnical testing, basic water, and stormwater and wastewater reticulation design. This infrastructure must be safe, functional, elegant and economically sound.

At MIT you’ll learn the analytical, industrial, laboratory and fieldwork skills as well as fundamentals of technical investigations required to enter civil industry as an engineering technician or technologist.
