Technological Institute of the Philippines

Civil Engineering - Manila Campus

The Civil Engineering program is a five-year program that provides students the knowledge and expertise necessary in planning, design, construction, supervision, and maintenance of facilities essential to modern life. These facilities vary widely in nature, size, and scope and include offshore structures, bridges, buildings, tunnels, highways, transit systems, dams, airports, ports and harbors, towers, and water distribution systems. The program also provides students the fundamental skills in land surveying, highway and transportation engineering design, structural design, and construction materials selection and testing. It also includes topics in flood controls, landslide, air and water pollution, and the design of facilities to withstand earthquakes and natural hazards.

Accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET (www.abet.org)

Accredited by Philippine Technological Council (PTC)

Recognition:
From CHED: Center of Development (COD) in Civil Engineering (BSCE)
From PACUCOA: Level IV Accredited Status in Civil Engineering

PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

The Civil Engineering program has adopted the following educational objectives.

Three to five years after graduation, the Civil Engineering alumni shall:

  • have advanced their practice or achievement in the field of Civil Engineering and/or other endeavors or advocacies supported by their acquired civil engineering education;
  • strive to be globally competitive through
    - living by the TIP mission values, pursuing continuing education, and practicing continuous quality improvement in their personal lives
    - continuously scanning, adopting, and building on the best practices in their field.

STUDENT OUTCOMES

By the time of graduation, students will be able to:

  1. apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to solve complex engineering problems;
  2. identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems;
  3. solve complex engineering problems by designing systems, components, or processes to meet specifications within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, cultural, social, societal, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability in accordance with standards;
  4. design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze, and interpret data, and synthesize information to provide valid conclusions for investigating complex problems;
  5. use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice in complex engineering activities;
  6. apply knowledge of contemporary issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice;
  7. understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development;
  8. apply principles of ethics and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities;
  9. function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multidisciplinary settings;
  10. communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with various communities including engineering experts and society at large using appropriate levels of discourse;
  11. demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments;
  12. recognize the need for, and prepare to engage in lifelong learning.
