Each academic year comprises of two semesters and each semester in full-time carries 30 credits. At the end of the course, the student must earn 240 credits.

Career Prospects

Engineering Jobs after registration with CRPE like Site Engineer, Resident Engineer, Consulting Engineer, Town & Planning Engineer, Civil Engineer, Building Engineer, Road Engineer, Water Engineer, Wastewater Engineer, Bridge Engineer, Traffic Engineer, Structural Engineer, Quality Control Engineer, Project Engineer, Tunnel Engineer, Dam Engineer etc. Some of these specialist jobs may require additional qualifications and/or training. * Management Jobs like Project Manager, Site Manager, Project Coordinator, Quality Control Manager etc.

Teaching Methods

Teaching and learning takes place through lectures, tutorials, study of projects, laboratory work, individual and group works, seminars and industrial placement. Students are expected to spend a considerable amount of time on private independent study. Even though the main medium of instruction will be French, some modules will be taught in English. Some parts of the dissertation may also be written in English. Our aim is to train bilingual professionals who will have a definite advantage in today’s competitive and globalised job market.
