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

Hi Foo Yoong,
The top engineering universities in Malaysia are UM, UKM, UPM, USM, UTM and UTP according to Times Higher Education and QS World University Rankings. If you want to limit it to only those in Kuala Lumpur, then there are not many choices to choose from. Institutions in Kuala Lumpur offering this course are UCSI, Herriot-Watt, TAR UC, UniKL, UM and Nottingham. The best among these is, of course, UM.
Hope this helps.
