University of Nottingham Malaysia
Department of Civil Engineering



Everyday we rely on some aspect of Civil engineering to enable us to live our lives. Whether it is building the Petronas Towers or life-saving water treatment plants in developing countries, civil engineering is the core discipline that enables projects to happen.

It touches just about every kind of structure you can think about: bridges, roads, tunnels, and skyscrapers. Civil engineering is a discipline that has real-life applications in countless aspects of modern living.
