Undergraduate Studies

Programes of Study

The Faculty offers programmes of study leading to the degrees of BSc, MSc, MPhil and PhD in Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering, Chemical & Process Engineering, Civil Engineering, Civil with Environmental Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Land Management (Valuation), Mechanical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Biosystems, Petroleum Engineering, Petroleum Geoscience, Surveying & Land Information, Urban and Regional Planning, Property Valuation, Geomatics and Geoinformatics.

The BSc programmes are divided into Levels 1, 2 and 3, and are conducted over three (3) academic years of two (2) semesters each. These programmes are accredited by the respective British professional engineering institutions.

A Cooperative Programme (COOP) was introduced in 1994. In the COOP, students who have completed Levels 1 and 2 of their respective BSc degree programmes may spend a full year in industry undergoing supervised, practical, engineering training. After completion of this training, they return to Level 3 of their programme.

Specialised Branches of Engineering

There are many specialised branches of engineering, four of which may be regarded as the most important and universally known. These four branches, which are well established in the Faculty, are as follows:

        • Chemical Engineering
