The The Civil Engineering programme offered by the University of Nairobi curriculum is tailored to give the students a solid scientific foundation from the start, where in the first year of study, courses of mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer programming, and engineering drawing are taught as well as other courses in the humanities. From the second year to the fifth year, students get well-grounded in the core Civil Engineering disciplines, which include; Mathematics, Structural analysis, Civil Engineering Materials, Fluid Mechanics, Transportation and Highway Engineering, Engineering Drawing and Design, Environmental Engineering, Engineering Management, Water Resources Engineering and Mathematics.
In the final year of study, students work on an engineering project that could be experimental or design-based, and this exposes them to the design process from concept to the final product, emphasizing effective communication and presentation skills.
