Diploma in Civil Engineering


Diploma in Civil Engineering KPT/JPS(PA 8460)09/22

The Diploma in Civil Engineering program will prepare graduates for engineering practice that deals with the design, construction, operation and surveying of the built environment that encompasses infrastructure such as buildings, bridges, roads, canals, dams, water supply and wastewater services facilities. The students will be given a stimulating teaching environment which blends conventional lectures and tutorials with online materials. This teaching environment helps them to formulate the issues,solutions through critical thinking, and assessing the results of their own work. Lincoln makes it compulsory for all students to take part in problem solving and action oriented work. Thus, students become more efficient and possess analytical mind to make it easier for them to meet the challenges of national as well as global competitive environment. The hallmark of Lincoln diploma holders will have access to many industry sectors. Civil engineers are focusing their attention towards new areas of development of Construction, Geo technical Product, Structural Design and transportation system. Diploma holders in Civil Engineering can look for higher education courses like B.E / B.Tech in Civil Engineering.

The aim of this program is to produce graduates who are both skilled in structural designing principles and have the ability to apply and solve basic engineering works and problems.The program of Diploma in Civil Engineering will produce Civil Engineering technicians who are:

  • Knowledgeable and skillful in practicing the technique and using tools in the field of civil engineering.
  • Professional in the civil engineering industry and continuously strive to take into account the society well being by practicing values and professional ethics.
  • Able to develop leadership role with good team work and communication for the planning and implementation of civil engineering services.
  • Capable of using scientific thinking skill to solve the civil engineering problems and enhance lifelong learning through continuous development
  • Able to identify the business opportunities and develop managerial skill for career enhancement in the field of civil engineering.

Civil Engineering has good prospects in industry as well as higher studies. Nowadays the scope is expanding beyond its traditional boundaries. Production, distribution and servicing of technical equipment could be one’s future career path, within the industry, the public sector or even the start-up of your own new enterprise.Graduates with qualifications related to the various levels of engineering certifications may be employed either in the public or private sectors. In the public sector, graduates are engaged to design engineering facilities; supervise construction projects on behalf of the government or be involved in operating and maintaining public infrastructure facilities. In the private sector, they can be employed by consulting practices, contractors or private developers.
