Civil Engineering Training Diploma

Course Description

Civil engineers principally plan, develop, work on, and keep up with actual frameworks, including water and waste administration offices, transportation, interchange foundations and designs, and public structures. This foundation upholds individuals’ fundamental necessities while empowering and driving the financial turn of events.

In the first two years of study, students develop competencies in mathematics, natural sciences, computing, and complementary studies. In the third and fourth years, students develop competencies in engineering design and synthesis through courses in geotechnical engineering, hydrology, hydraulics, transportation engineering, structural engineering, and construction materials.


Royal Institute for Chartered Engineers (RICE, USA) The Royal Institute for Chartered Engineers, widely known as RICE, is one of the world’s largest engineering institutions. Located in Texas, USA, it was established by professional engineers who believed that being an engineer doesn’t stop after you graduate and are labeled as one of the top people who earn a good income but believed that engineers needed to continue seeking higher qualifications for a much better life, network, and opportunities.
