B.Sc. in Civil and Environmental Engineering


B.Sc. in Civil and Environmental Engineering


The University of Lunsar Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers an undergraduate programme that facilitates the development of critical analytical abilities and the necessary core of knowledge and skills for entry into the civil engineering profession or graduate studies. This body of knowledge includes the scientific procedures for formulating and testing theories and the procedures for applying theory to enhance welfare through engineering analysis, synthesis, and design. The civil engineer plays a key role in the design, construction, maintenance, and management of society’s physical infrastructure, including transportation and communication systems, structural facilities for housing human activities, water resource management systems, natural resource development systems, and facilities and programs for environmental protection. The emphasis in civil engineering education is on fundamental principles of science and mathematics and their application to solving human problems. Civil engineering activities interact in many ways with the natural and social environments within which they take place. Accordingly, the civil engineering programme strives to create an awareness of the ecological, social, economic, and political context of engineering and attempts to prepare the civil engineer for the necessary interactions with other professions and the public. An effort to instill an understanding of the role of the civil engineer in satisfying total societal needs is an integral part of the civil engineering program. Consistent with the general program goal of facilitating the development of student competence necessary for entry into engineering practice or graduate school, the Department has developed the following program objectives:

Within a few years of program completion, graduates of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department should be able to combine skills gained through academic preparation and post-graduation experience so that they can:

  • Apply skills of effective communication, teamwork, leadership, and professional and ethical behavior as complements to technical competence.
  • Incorporate economic, environmental, social, and sustainability considerations into the practice of civil engineering.
  • Continue their technical and professional development, which may include professional licensure, graduate-level education, continuing education courses, self-directed study, and participation in conference and committee activities.

Students are progressively exposed to civil engineering design, culminating in a focused design course experience. Classroom instruction in the civil engineering program is reinforced by instructional laboratories in the major areas of civil engineering practice.


  • The minimum admission requirement for entry into the department are five credits at not more than two sittings in WASSCE or GCE “O”- Level.
    1. Candidate must obtain Credit of a minimum grade of C5 in the Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and a minimum grade of C6 in English Language.
    2. In addition to the requirements in (1) above, candidates must obtain credit of minimum C6 in any other science or technical subject.
  • Candidates with the minimum of 5 “O” level Credits including English language of “C” or better and with Credits of “C” or better at “A” Level in Mathematics and at least one other subject chosen from Physics and Chemistry, will be admitted to Year II.
  • OND and HND candidates:
    1. Candidates with Pass or CREDIT at OND and Pass at HND with minimum C6 in English Language at WASSCE will be admitted to Year II.
    2. Candidates with Pass or Credit at OND and Credit at HND with minimum C6 in English Language at WASSCE will be admitted to Year III.
    3. Candidates with Pass or Credit at OND with a minimum C6 in English Language at WASSCE will be admitted to Year I.
    4. All OND and HND candidates with the entry requirements but without the minimum C6 in English Language at WASSCE will be required to take and pass the College Matriculation English Language exam for admission.
