In addition to conscious motivation, the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering program requires good knowledge of basic calculus and sciences— both natural and physical—so that students, along with the outcomes-based method of teaching and learning, can wade through the streams of higher mathematics and core courses that serve as foundation in gaining the ability to: calculate forces that act upon horizontal and vertical structures; analyze the effects of forces and response of structures; determine the properties and behavior of construction materials; estimate the quantity and cost of materials for construction; determine water velocity and flow rates either in pipes or open channels; and estimate flow velocity, flow rates and volumes in rivers and natural waterways. The program, through the professional and elective courses, trains the students to: design horizontal and vertical structures; manage construction projects and design water supply systems, flood protection, and control structures; perform land development planning and consultancy, and work as part of a team. The program provides hands-on training to students through internship in partner construction industries, consultancy groups, government and non-government organizations and related industries. The program provides opportunities for the students to offer solution to problems of our partner communities through Community Extension Services (CES) and Education with a Mission (EDM) programs and activities.
