Knust Civil Engineering Cut Off Point
Civil engineering is the professional practice of designing and developing infrastructure projects. This can be on a huge scale, such as the development of nationwide transport systems or water supply networks, or on a smaller scale, such as the development of individual roads or buildings.
However, Civil engineering has seven fields into it. Namely;
- Structural engineering.
- Construction engineering and management.
- Geotechnical engineering.
- Environmental engineering.
- Transportation engineering.
- Water resources engineering.
- Materials engineering.
Civil engineering is one of the many courses that focus on design, construct, maintain, and operate infrastructures, while simultaneously safeguarding public and environmental health and upgrading neglected structures and systems. Civil engineering reaches from the natural environment to the constructed environment, focusing on interactions between the two, with an emphasis on sustainability.
Combining atmospheric and energy sciences, civil engineers study climate, air pollution, and weather, addressing problems that might be solved through renewable energy systems. They examine the availability of renewable resources (wind, hydropower, and solar), and best practices for their combinations.
In Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, the cut-off point for admission to this course is aggregate ten(10) that is in WASSCE. The core requirement for offering this course is to have a background in General Science in Senior High school.
After a bachelor’s degree in the civil engineering course, the job opportunities available are;
Construction engineers manage construction projects, ensuring that they are scheduled and built in accordance with plans and specifications. These engineers typically are responsible for the design and safety of temporary structures used during construction. They may also oversee budgetary, time-management, and communications aspects of a project.
Geotechnical engineers work to make sure that foundations for built objects ranging from streets and buildings to runways and dams, are solid. They focus on how structures built by civil engineers, such as buildings and tunnels, interact with the earth (including soil and rock). In addition, they design and plan for slopes, retaining walls, and tunnels.
Structural engineers design and assess major projects, such as buildings, bridges, or dams, to ensure their strength and durability.
Transportation engineers plan, design, operate and maintain everyday systems, such as streets and highways, but they also plan larger projects, such as airports, ship ports, mass transit systems, and harbors.
