BSc. in Water and Environment Engineering

1.0 Rationale

The department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEEN) at Egerton University has specifically designed the programme to train Engineers who can contribute solutions to the ever-changing Water and Environmental Engineering problems in our society. The programme lays a heavy emphasis on the practical application of knowledge, while at the same time recognizing the importance of theoretical knowledge in developing the intellectual capacity of the graduate Engineer.

The course profile provides sufficient core elements of Water and Environmental Engineering education for the graduate Engineer to handle issues in this Engineering field.

Possible employers of Water and Environmental Engineering graduates are include Ministries dealing with Water and Irrigation, Environment and Natural resources, County development authorities and Municipal Council’s water service companies, Private consulting firms, National and International Non-Governmental Organizations, Civil Engineering contractors, Institutions of higher learning and National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA) among others.

2.0 Programme Objectives

The main Objectives of the programme are to:

i) Prepare graduate engineers who can accomplish planning, design and construction of water systems and related infrastructural facilities.

ii) Give a practical orientation to the graduate engineer to be able to contribute practical solutions to Water and Environmental Engineering problems in our society.

iii) Inculcate the graduate Engineers with sound theoretical knowledge in engineering sciences as well as in research and consultancy skills.

iv) Impart positive and responsive vocational attitudes, initiative and creative thinking in their mission as engineers.


3.0 Admission Requirements

All candidates admitted to the degree programme of Bachelor of Science in Water and Environmental Engineering must satisfy the minimum University entrance requirements as will be determined from time to time by the Kenya Universities Admission/Placement body.
