Programme Code: 080703          Duration4 years
Educational Objectives:
Students of this programme are to be trained to meet the needs of socialist modernization, comprehensive physical and moral development, to master the basic theory and basic knowledge of civil engineering disciplines, with the basic training for engineers.
Objective 1: [foundation knowledge] Cultivate students to master the basic principle and knowledge of Civil Engineering. In order to help students prepare themselves to apply these foundations to the practice of civil engineering, the advanced knowledge including the knowledge of design, construction, management, project plan and research development are going to be delivered.
Objective 2: [problem-solving ability] Cultivate students’ capabilities to skilled solve the engineering problems with professional knowledge and foundations, and strengthen students’ engineering practice and creative abilities.
Objective 3: [teamwork and leadership] Cultivate students’ communication and cooperation abilities in the team, especially the leadership in civil engineering fields.
Objective 4: [systematic understanding of the discipline] Students will be aware of the importance of civil engineering in development of national economy.  Only when the engineers are qualified with solid foundation, extensive professional knowledge, they are able to carry the technology and management jobs in building, pathway, bridge and tunnel projects.
Objective 5: [ability of evaluating social and environmental impacts] Students not only have the first class knowledge and capacities in China, but also can catch up development of south China, Hong Kong and Macau and south and east Asia. 
Objective 6: [global perspective] Cultivate students to obtain an international perspective. Students can keep clear sense in the global environment and competitively and responsibly carry their duty. 
Objective 7: [lifelong learning] Students of Civil Engineering Major can be qualified for many kinds of careers, as survey, design, construction, management, education, investment and development, and have the capacity of lifelong learning.
Programme Features:
This major offers professional foundations and technological knowledge, including mechanics, basic theory of civil engineering, design method, advanced construction technology and project management. The major also cultivate the students the abilities on information technology and research and development in civil engineering. The part of the courses applies bilingual education. The creation of cutting-edge science and technology seminars and some innovative programs can help to train students with some international perspective, future-oriented high-level expertise.
