Civil Engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines both in terms of the range of problems that fall within its purview and in the range of knowledge required to solve those problems. The BS Civil Engineering (BSCE) program of LCC is the pioneer higher education institution to offer the BS Civil Engineering program in the City of San Jose del Monte Bulacan.
BSCE prepares the students to part of a profession that applies the basic principles of science in conjunction with mathematical and computational tools to solve problems associated with developing and sustaining civilized life on our planet.
- The 4-Year BS Civil Engineering program prepares students to be a licensed Civil Engineer. The graduates can pursue a career specific among the five major fields of Civil Engineering: Construction Engineering and Management, Geotechnical and Geo-Environmental Engineering, Structural Engineering, Transportation Engineering, and Water Resources Engineering.
By the time of graduation, the students of the program shall have the ability to:
- apply knowledge of mathematics and science to solve civil engineering problems;
- design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data;
- design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints, in accordance with standards;
- function in multidisciplinary and multi-cultural teams;
- identify, formulate, and solve civil engineering problems;
- understand professional and ethical responsibility;
- communicate effectively civil engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large;
- understand the impact of civil engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
- recognize the need for, and engage in life-long learning
- know contemporary issues;
- use techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for civil engineering practice; and
- know and understand engineering and management principles as a member and leader of a team, and to manage projects in a multidisciplinary environment.
The completion of a civil engineering project involves the solution of technical problems in which information from numerous sources and myriad non-technical factors play a significant role. Some of the most common examples of civil engineering works include:
- airports and hangars,
- ports and harbors,
- highways and railways,
- river and shore improvements,
- flood protection,
- water supply,
