Hello Farah,

Civil Engineering and Architecture both have similarities in the case where they work with planning and designing structures. However, Architecture focuses more on the spatial functionality and aesthetics of the development work (aka the design) while Civil Engineering focuses more on the structural elements of the design, ensuring the safety and durability of the structure in both normal and extreme conditions. 

Hope this helps :)

Hello Angel,

Tuition fee means the fees that you will be paying for your classes in university. It does not include your room and board fees. Depending on university websites, the tuition fee could be presented in a yearly form, or semester form. You will have to check with the particular university website to determine the price of the degree you want to enroll in.

The fees for Civil Engineering differs with different universities. It can go from a range of approximately RM45,300 to RM73,000.00 or more. Of course, you will also have to take the course quality and environment into consideration too.

If you are interested in Civil Engineering, here is a sample link on our site of a university that offers the course. You can click the link and fill out the form on the right hand column and our counsellors will get back to you in a while.

Hi Zafri,

Civil Engineering is a good choice as engineering careers will always be high in demand. You're on the right track to a stable career. The study of Civil Engineering in Malaysia involves the design, construction and management of a project such as highways, tunnels, dams and major buildings. You might want to check out the course description and entry requirements for a course in Civil Engineering here: https://afterschool.my/civil-engineering

Civil Engineering is only available in degree level. To get there, you will need to complete a pre-university programme first. Your options are STPM, A-Levels, Matriculation, Foundation, IB, ADTP, etc. A pre-u programme should not take you more than 2 years to complete, after which you will be able to enrol for a degree in Civil Engineering. Core subjects for any engineering course must include Physics and Mathematics. We suggest you to opt for a Foundation in Engineering in the top private engineering university in Malaysia, UTP or UM under the public university category. UTP's foundation programme only takes 1 year to complete and they also offer a Bachelor in Civil Engineering. If you'd like us to help you with your application, please click here https://afterschool.my/universiti-teknologi-petronas/foundation-in-engineering fill up your details on the right side of the page and we will contact you shortly

Do check the rankings of universities in Malaysia based on engineering programmes here: https://afterschool.my/find-university-in-malaysia/university-of-malaya-um-is-the-22nd-best-university-in-the-world-for-engineering-and-technology-in-qs-world-university-rankings-by-subject-2018

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask if you have further queries :)

Hi Muhammad Zafri

Civil engineering is everything that is built around us such as roads, railways, bridges, buildings and etc. This course involves the design, construction and maintenance of the physically built environment. Subjects like physics, chemistry and mathematics are the core subjects required in Civil engineering. You will have to complete a pre university (foundation in science - 1 year) course first before taking your degree in civil engineering (4 years).

UTP and UTAR are some of the best universities offering a degree in Civil Engineering. University Teknologi Petronas(UTP) is a prestigious government linked university that offers this engineering course and places students for a 7 month long industrial training. University Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR) is a 5-star SETARA rating university that offers civil engineering degree with 95% employment rate. Click here to know more on Civil Engineering.
