Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering

Civil engineering is a professional discipline concerned with the design, analysis, construction and maintenance of both physically and naturally built environment. As part of the vision and mission of the University of Perpetual Help System DALTA, the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering Program aims to produce technically proficient and ethically minded engineering graduates who will help build a resilient and sustainable community. The program has five major tracks in line with those of its professional counterpart, the Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers. These are construction engineering and management, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, water resources engineering, and transportation engineering, all of which provide both depth and breadth of knowledge onto its students.
