Civil Engineering & Infrastructure

Programs offered

  • B.Eng (Hons) Civil & Infrastructure Engineering
  • HND in Building Services Engineering
  • HND in Construction Management
  • HND in Surveying

School of Engineering offers a bachelor degree in Civil and Infrastructure, study abroad pathway to RMIT University in Australia. Civil Engineers are in huge demand in developed countries such as USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Middle East, Australia and New Zealand. Most of these countries have listed Civil Engineering as critical shortage occupation and encourage civil engineers to migrate and settle permanently. Civil Engineering Market size is expected to reach USD 11.72 trillion by 2025; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.

Population demographics along with increasing urbanisation have facilitated the need for sustainable and efficient infrastructure solutions. Development in green buildings, sensor-embedded roads & buildings, geopolymer concrete, and water management will stimulate global civil engineering industry growth. Escalating demand for sophisticated infrastructure accompanied by rising income levels along with increasing investment in smart grids, industrial automation, urban mobility, and parking systems technologies and policies should drive civil engineering market growth. Global government purchases were over USD 4 trillion in 2015. Rising non-residential projects spending associated with public funding including sewage & waste disposal, transportation, education, streets & highways, and water supply are major contributors. Asia Pacific industrial infrastructure market is valued at over USD 150 billion in 2015. Surging concept design & development, industrial expansion, demand for highly developed facilities across numerous sectors will positively impact civil engineering market growth.

The program is designed to study first two years in India and remaining two years in RMIT, Melbourne or at the University of Hertfordshire campus. The course is designed with maximum flexibility to exit after two years with HND award from Pearson Education in the UK. The first two years is a typical civil engineering subject, further allowing the students to make an informed decision on what civil engineering discipline they want to specialise and the choice of University.


As a as the human population flourishes, there is a need for home, office, malls, hotels and entertainment halls. There will always be a need for civil engineers who can develop environmental friendly infrastructures. Civil Engineers not only built home, malls, offices and they are also involved in town planning, construction of roads and highways, rails and runways for aircraft. The global infrastructure companies are looking for Civil engineers who can design, develop infrastructure to meet environmental law and energy efficiency and safe structures.

This course is developed by Pearson Education, the UK in collaboration with the British employers

  • Cundall (International, multi-disciplinary consulting engineers)
  • Vinci Construction (multinational construction and facilities company)
  • Bentley (Global architecture, engineering and construction software vendor)
  • Autodesk (Global architecture, engineering and construction software vendor
  • Arup (multinational architecture, engineering and consulting firm)

Our team of academic professional have dedicatedly worked with University of Hertfordshire, UK and RMIT - Melbourne Australia to offer progression pathway for our students to study remaining two years in UK or Australia. This course is designed to produce global job-ready graduates with knowledge on the latest technologies used in construction industry and building management system.
