Sidebar    Degree Requirements

The following are the requirements for the degree of BEng (Environmental Engineering):

  • Students in the BEng (Environmental Engineering) Programme are required to complete a minimum of 160 MCs with a CAP ≥ 2.0 to graduate from the programme.
  • 160 MCs will have to be earned by reading modules in accordance with Table 3.2.7a.
  • The students are free to choose any combination of the offered modules from Table 3.2.7b to complete 8 MCs of Technical Elective modules and 8 MCs of Professional Pathway modules (Professional Development modules).
  • A student must also satisfy other additional requirements that may be prescribed by the Faculty of Engineering or the University.

Students may apply to read Minor in Civil Infrastructure and upon successfully completion of the requirement, student would be sufficiently proficient in core Civil Engineering disciplines. These will provide necessary background and training to better prepare the graduates for a professional role in infrastructure development. For details, please refer to section 3.3.5.

1 BEng students are required to read a Critical Thinking & Writing module (ES1531 Critical Thinking & Writing which also satisfies the General Education (Thinking & Expression) requirement) and a Communications module (ES2331 Communicating Engineering). Alternatively, students can read ES1501X Academic Expository Writing in place of both ES1531 and ES2331. USP/UTRP/RVRC students should refer to their respective programmes for USP/UTRP/RVRC modules to be read in place of ES1531 and/or ES2331.
2 For students who have not passed or been exempted from the Qualifying English Test at the time of admissions to the Faculty.
3 For BEng students in the following special programmes: DDPs, CDPs, E-Scholars & CSP, internship / industrial-attachment is optional and the modular credits for the internship/industrial-attachment will become ‘Free Electives’ i.e., Unrestricted Electives (UE).
Note: Limit on Level-1000 Modules
Students should not read more than 60 MCs of Level-1000 modules towards their degree requirements (minimum of 160 MCs for graduation).
