Civil Engineering for Non-Civil Engineers

21 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Apply fundamental concepts to civil engineering works.
  • Employ materials and mechanics core principles in various civil engineering applications.
  • Assess information needed in civil engineering design.
  • Use robust strategy in temporary structures and civil construction.
  • Solve common civil engineering design problems such as in pavements and concrete structures.
  • Assess the condition of civil infrastructure such as bridges and its need for repair.


Non-civil engineers involved in civil construction and infrastructure projects need to acquire a robust fundamental basis without the complexity associated with expert knowledge. This course covers the materials, mechanics and field construction and inspection aspects of diverse civil works including pavements, bridges, reinforced concrete, prestressed concrete, fiber-reinforced composites, temporary structures, and condition assessment of aging structures. The course introduces basic simplified theory then uses workshops and problem-based learning to reinforce field application.
