ENGINEERING: CIVIL - DO NOT USE...

BTech: (baccalaureus technologiae)

The graduate at this level functions as a technologist who displays competence as a member of the engineering team in the execution of specialist engineering tasks. The course will develop the application of knowledge, independent thinking, and communication skills, as well as proficiency in the identification and solution of complex civil engineering problems.

Students may choose one of five options to complete this BTech, in the fields of Urban Engineering, Water Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Structural Engineering, or Construction Management.

Purpose and Rationale of the qualification
A learner achieving this qualification will be competent to apply theoretical knowledge, practical experience and skills gained in their specialised area of civil engineering at the level of a Professional technologist by interpreting, managing and applying current technology to complex specialist engineering activity within codes, or by adapting standards and codes, under minimal supervision.


Career Opportunities
Graduates are employed by civil engineering contractors, consulting engineers, and govermnement departments at local, provincial, or national level.

Broadly speaking civil engineering is divided into two basic activities: planning and design on the one hand, and construction and maintenance on the other. The work will vary considerably according to the field of employment, but in both fields the technologist will provide in-depth support, sometimes of a highly specialised nature, to the engineering team.

Construction and maintenance projects include bridges, dams, railways, roads, harbours, sewers, pipelines, and other structures.

In the planning and design field, the technologist will be engaged in survey, design, costing, estimating, draughting, traffic studies, materials investigation, and testing.
