Students will undergo a six to 12-month continuous structured learning and work programme in the construction industry that exposes them to both design office and field/site supervision experience. The learning experience is more structured than an internship, with objectives and corresponding assessments in career and professional skills, integration of knowledge and practice, and innovation skills. In addition, the Capstone Project is embedded within the IWSP, and students will start to formalise and propose their projects during the first semester of IWSP with input from their industrial supervisors.
Field/site supervision experience is mandatory for professional registration and this experience can contribute to the recognition of work experience required for registration as a resident engineer with IES/ACES.
Students will participate in an intensive three-week Overseas Immersion Programme (OIP) at the home campus of the University of Glasgow where they get to experience life as a student in Glasgow, United Kingdom. The programme itinerary includes library and career talks, academic lectures, research and literature review workshops to prepare students for their final-year dissertation projects, as well as visits to companies, museums and key cultural sites.
The group project-based subjects covering both the conceptual and detailed aspects of design will be carried out during the OIP, involving different areas of the civil engineering discipline such as ground investigation, planning, transportation design, social, foundation design, structural design, and buildability of the construction.
Graduates can look forward to working in, but not limited to, the following occupational fields:
Diploma holders from any local polytechnic and A-Level graduates are welcome to apply.
Holders of BCA Academy Diploma in Construction Engineering are eligible to apply.
Subject to approval, diploma applicants may be granted module exemptions, based on the modules taken during their diploma.
