About the course
Master of Civil Engineering (by Research) course is designed to provide students with a formal qualification in engineering at the master’s level. The candidate may choose any area of civil engineering offered i.e Construction, Structural, Geotechnical, Hydraulic & Water Resources and Highway & Pavement engineering. Career opportunities exist in a wide range of organizations including manufacturing companies, research organizations, academic institutions, energy agencies, local, state and federal governments and local authorities. Being one of the most recognized universities in the field of civil engineering in Malaysia, IUKL offers a Master of Civil Engineering (by research) programme. Civil Engineering is one of the oldest types of Engineering, and it specializes in securing naturally built environments. This means you can work with anything from buildings to bridges and canals, and the first step is obtaining a Master in Civil Engineering degree. There are several levels you can concentrate on as a graduate with a Master in Civil Engineering: you can work in the public sector, the private sector or even in a national government. Due to the high demand of competent professionals in this field, those with Master in Civil Engineering degrees have excellent career opportunities. The Master of Engineering (Civil) provides graduate Engineers with discipline specific knowledge and technical skills in advanced civil engineering. This degree covers many areas including sustainable infrastructure, environmental protection, the conservation of resources, as well as the traditional disciplines of structural, geotechnical and transportation engineering. This course is also suitable for practising civil engineers with relevant work experience in engineering infrastructure constructions.The Master of Engineering delivers expert skills and applied competencies required for the professional engineer. It is designed to train and enhance professional practice, advance technical and specialist skills, and provide an opportunity to put theory into practice with applied projects and research. The degree also delivers communication, strategic and project management skills essential to the practising engineer.
