The Master of Engineering in Civil Engineering (M. Eng.: Civil) is a post-graduate degree designed to have 420 credits at NQF Level 9, and replaces the Master of Transport Engineering. The programme on the outcomes of the Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering (BEng: Civil), and aims at providing practice-orientated education for high-level engineers and specialist that are able to provide practical solutions to real-world civil engineering related problems in Namibia and beyond. The curriculum is structured to facilitate specialisation in the areas of Structures, Transportation and Water.
This programme will, furthermore enable students to evaluation and design complex and innovative systems in the above mentioned areas of specialisation using advanced analytical, design, as well as management tools and techniques in order to address societal needs. Students will also be capacitated to work and study independently, synthesis knowledge at the forefront of Civil Engineering, and conduct research using the scientific method. This programme will be a combination of coursework and a thesis.
Graduates of this programme will be able to contribute significantly to national economic development in positions such as Engineering Managers, Senior Engineers, Consultants, Researchers, Academics, etc.
Programme Outcomes at Exit Level (Qualification Outcomes)
Upon completing this programme, students will be able to:
• demonstrate mastery of theoretically sophisticated subject matter in the areas of specialisation i.e. Structures, Transportation or Water;
• solve complex Civil Engineering problems to improve organisational performance and enhance national competitiveness;
• design Civil Engineering models to fit particular industries by evaluating information and appraising the degree to which the model fit the industry;
• work in goal-orientated and self-directed ways;
• plan and carry out a substantial piece of original research to internationally recognised standards using the scientific method; and
• present research outcomes in a professional and effective way, catering for a wide range of specialist and non-specialist audiences.
Engieneering managers, Senior Engineers, Consultants, Researchers, Academics, etc.
