BEng Civil & Environmental Engineering


The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers a five year degree in civil and environmental engineering that is designed to provide students with detailed courses in structures, construction materials, geotechnics, water, environmental engineering and transportation. To graduate a candidate shall obtain a minimum of 660 credits and comply with other prescribed curriculum requirements which may exceed the 660 credits. This programme is quality assured by Botswana Qualification Authority and by a Departmental Advisory Board made from civil engineering professionals in the industry. The purpose of the programme is to produce high quality engineers for the civil and environmental engineering industry through excellent education, research and partnership with the industry. Upon completion of the programme, a graduate should have the necessary knowledge, understanding, abilities and skills required for further learning towards becoming a registered professional engineer with national and international professional bodies. Civil engineering is arguably the oldest engineering discipline and continues to provide the largest employment world-wide due to the high demand of the much-needed construction industry. Civil engineers literally build nations through construction and maintenance of large and most essential infrastructures such as roads, bridges, railway lines, buildings, dams, water and waste water treatment and supply systems. Primary disciplines in civil engineering are structures, construction materials, geotechnics, transport, water and environmental engineering. This programme will give you the theory and practical part of these disciplines that are well backed by the basic fundamentals of science and engineering such mathematics, chemistry, physics and mechanics of materials. You will also be provided with soft skills that allow you to perform in the industry such as professional ethics, construction management and entrepreneurship skills.There is no fixed or standard career path for a Civil Engineer. In Botswana you can join the vast construction industry, consulting industry, Government Departments, parastatals and the mining industry. You can also opt to further pursue your learning by joining the postgraduate programme at BIUST which will give you the opportunity to enter the academic world and open your career path even wider.
