- Minors are not applicable for the Civil Engineering program.
- Senior students enrolled in the dual degree program may obtain the Technical Elective course list from the Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: AUPP is not accepting new applicants for the Civil Engineering program.
This is a dual degree only program with the University of Arizona (UA). The UA award is Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering.
The Civil Engineering program prepares graduates for success in the world of Civil Engineering, whether in Cambodia, Southeast Asia, or beyond. Civil Engineering is the practical application of scientific principles to construction. Students should be good at math and science. A high level of math is needed.
The program includes science courses in physics, chemistry, geology and hydrology (the science of water and its movement). It also includes practical sciences such as surveying, and computer graphics. Engineering specific courses will include transport engineering (roads, airports, bridges), and construction engineering (buildings and their foundations).
Concepts from coursework in General Education contribute to students’ preparation for a professional career by enhancing understanding of the world today and how people think and act in professional relationships. The program courses in Civil Engineering focus on the common body of knowledge in Civil Engineering.
Preparation for a career in today’s world requires that graduates have a broad-based education and know how to both learn and appreciate the importance of life-long learning. Building on an understanding of the basic underpinnings of Civil Engineering, graduates are able to grasp new ideas, think analytically, communicate effectively, adapt to change, work as a member of a team, value cultural differences, demonstrate strong ethical values and a respect for the environment in order to work effectively in the world of Civil Engineering.
Civil Engineers are responsible for much of the man-made environment around us and for shaping and molding the natural world on which we construct our man-made environment. Buildings, roads, drainage and flood control systems, man-made riverbanks, dams, tunnels, bridges, airports, harbors, sea-defenses, canals, and railway systems are all the work of Civil Engineers.
Civil Engineering graduates find work in government, private engineering companies, engineering consultancies and construction companies.
