Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering w/ Specializations in:




The BSCE program can be completed in four years and one term, covering four years of academic training and one term and one summer of practical training. The BSCE curriculum at DLSU was designed with the objective of producing civil engineers who have sufficient background in general education courses, mathematics, physical and natural sciences, basic engineering sciences, and general civil engineering. Moreover, the present curriculum introduces specializations in the undergraduate program by requiring the students to take specialization courses from one of the following fields:



  1. Construction Technology and Management (CTM)
  2. Hydraulics and Water Resources Engineering (HWR)
  3. Structural Engineering (STE)
  4. Transportation Engineering (TRE)


Specialization in Construction Technology and Management (CTM)


The CTM program intends to produce graduates who are better prepared for the demands of the construction industry. The main objective of the CTM program is to prepare students for the effective planning and implementation of construction projects by giving them basic knowledge of construction materials and technology, and project management concepts. The subjects in project management include topics in plans and specifications, cost engineering, and accounting, and organization. The program also envisions that some graduates may immediately join their family construction business or may ultimately put up their own firms. Subjects that deal with estimating, bidding, marketing, business organization, economics, and strategy are tackled to prepare them for this prospect. The specialization courses for the CTM program are:


  1. CTMMATS - Materials Science
  2. CTMENTR - Entrepreneurship for Engineers
  3. CTMCOST - Cost Engineering
  4. CTMDATA - Data Management


Specialization in Hydraulics and Water Resources Engineering (HWR)


The HWR program was developed in response to the needs of the country in solving water resources related problems such as water supply crisis, power shortage, insufficient food supply due to poor irrigation, water pollution, and disasters due to lahar and flood flows. The HWR program covers a broad field encompassing the following major sub-fields: analysis of water occurrences and flows, control of water, utilization of water, water quality analysis, watershed management and planning, and sedimentation in channels. The HWR program aims to produce competent Hydraulic and Water Resources Engineers who can work as engineers/consultants in government agencies, in construction and in private consulting firms. The specialization courses for the HWR program are:


  1. HWRFIDE - Flood Control, Irrigation, and Drainage Engineering
  2. HWRPEMS - Water Supply, Water Power, Water Development and Planning
  3. HWRSASE - Sanitary and Wastewater Engineering
  4. LBYCVW4 - Coast and River Engineering


Specialization in Structural Engineering (STE)


The STE program aims to produce competent structural engineers who can provide technical support in the infrastructure development of the country. In general, the STE program trains the students in the planning, analysis, design, construction, inspection, rehabilitation, and preservation of structures which includes residential and office buildings, bridges, and a large variety of structures using various materials such as steel, concrete, and timber, taking into consideration technical, economic, environmental, and social aspects. The specialization courses for the STE program are:


  1. STEQUAK - Earthquake Engineering
  2. STEBRID - Bridge Engineering
  3. STEPRES - Pre-stressed Concrete Design
  4. LBYCVT4 - Structural Design of Buildings


Specialization in Transportation Engineering (TRE)


The TRE program aims to produce Transportation and Highway Engineers who can provide technical support in the government's program of improving and expanding the transportation system and infrastructures of the country such as the LRT, MRT, flyovers, skyways, airports, and harbors. The TRE program also addresses issues related to transport planning, urban traffic engineering and management, and the design and construction of road pavements. The specialization courses for the TRE program are:


  1. TRESYSD - Transportation System and Design, Airports, Ports, and Railways
  2. TRETRAF - Highway Design and Traffic Safety
  3. TRETRAN - Transportation Planning
  4. LBYCVR2 - Transportation Planning Laboratory
