Program name: Civil Engineering
Study Level: Undergraduate
Program leader: Saeid Sahmani
Study language: English
Qualification: Bachelor of Civil Engineering 0732.1.2
Program capacity: 240
Program permission: English language B1 level (70%) and other legislative requirements, namely citizens of Georgia should successfully pass Unified National Entrance Examinations. Foreign high-school graduates who received complete general education abroad or its equivalent and the last two years of complete general education had studied abroad or students who lived abroad for the last two or more years and who are currently studying abroad in higher educational institutions recognized by the legislation of the host countries will be able to enter the program without passing Uniform National Entrance Examinations according to Order №224/N of the Minister of Education and Science of Georgia (December 29, 2011).
Program goals:

The aim is to provide students with a broad and thorough education in Civil Engineering fundamentals, applications, and design that prepares them for the practice of civil engineering at the professional level with the confidence and skills necessary to meet the technical and social challenges of the future . The curriculum incorporates all four main technical areas of study in Civil Engineering including structural analysis and design, materials and construction, water and environment, as well as management and engineering economics.

Methods for Attaining Learning Outcomes:
  • Lecture - Seminar
  • Working with the book
  • Demonstration
  • Discussions
  • Practical lessons
  • Laboratory exercises
  • Interactive lessons
  • Team work
  • Setting problems and solving them
  • Verbal and oral method
  • Critical analysis
  • Problem-solving tasks
Learning outcomes:
  • The graduate will have an ability to:

    • identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
    • apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
    • communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
    • recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
    • function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive
      environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
    • develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
    • acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

    Program details:

    The student can be guided by the proposed curriculum and individually draw up his/her personal curriculum, taking into account the special needs of subjects. In the last semester of study, the student chooses a topic of Capstone project from the proposed areas. The Capstone project is carried out in groups, which contributes to the development of filed knowledge and teamwork skills. The program provides for an optional course internship, which will help the student, if necessary, to better formulate himself when choosing a topic for a Capstone project.
