In order to meet the Cambodian social and economic needs for improvement of civil and urban infrastructure, it is necessary to moderate and develop an awareness and interest among the students, who are to become the future engineer in the country. Civil engineering is a diverse, rewarding and challenging profession. Civil engineers and technologists team together to plan, design, construct and maintain road and rail transportation systems, port and airport facilities, bridges, tunnels, dams, and buildings of all types, water, gas and oil pipelines; energy-generating facilities, water, air and waste treatment plants, to name but a few of their activities in an ever expanding field of endeavor. Civil engineers are, to a great extent, the designers, builders and custodians of societys built environment as well as stewards of the natural environment. The primary aim of Bachelor of Civil Engineering degree is to academically prepare the engineering student for professional practice. The curriculum focuses on developing strong skills in engineering science and design, communications, and management. Throughout the program, the students are given many opportunities to develop their critical thinking, problem solving and creative abilities.
The degree program presents a broad, practical overview of the field of civil engineering. Presentation of the course material is primarily delivered at a foundational level with engineering fundamentals stressed and reinforced across the curriculum. A strong understanding of practical and physical principles is fostered and promoted and an abundance of learning opportunities is provided to apply these fundamentals to the solution of real-world design scenarios that would be encountered by both technologists and engineers. Throughout the program, opportunities are presented to students to strengthen their graphical, written, and oral communication skills. A significant amount of time is directly related to hands-on training in material testing, surveying, manual and computer-aided drafting, and instruction in the use of engineering software tools. The degree program is academically rigorous, with thorough investigation of the theoretical foundations of civil engineering science and design topics. At the same time, the practical application of civil engineering knowledge is presented and applied through course assignments and project work. Additionally, the student is challenged to view the engineer s role from an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspective. The role of the engineer as a manager is also developed. In the final two years of the program, the students educational experience is enriched through a series of liberal studies courses. To further develop engineering skills for professional practice, the degree concludes with the completion of a team-based capstone design project.
Civil Engineering teaches you the infrastructure for societies and is one of the oldest technical professions. The demand for Civil Engineers has grown as the country developed and the communities and governments expect qualified engineered, highly maintained and effective facilities. This course covers the design, planning, management and construction of essential community infrastructure, including industrial and commercial buildings, water supply and water treatment plant or wastewater systems, irrigation, drainage and flood protection systems, bridges, roads and transportation systems.
NTTI graduates have been well educated in both fundamental and professional knowledge to become high qualified civil engineers for the needs of society.
