Dean's Welcome Note
On behalf of the faculty and administrative as well as technical staff, I welcome you to the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Earth Resources at Universiti Malaysia PAHANG (UMP). We have come a long way since our formation in 2002 and is now positioned to become a leading provider of civil engineering programmes, on top of being a producer of relevant research outputs.
We strive to ensure the best possible education for individuals to become future professionals. To date, our Graduate Employability pointer has breached the 90% mark for each cohort . Besides the current crop of established undergraduate programmes and research-based postgraduate programmes, the faculty is working towards offering new Masters degrees and other postgraduate courses.
Our lecture rooms are designed to produce as conducive an environment as possible to bring out the best in our students. We also have laboratories that cater to the different fields in civil engineering, and which are equipped with all the basic tests necessary to cover the syllabus in our undergraduate programmes. In addition to that, our laboratories are also home to various more advanced equipment and apparatus that support research at the postgraduate and post-doctoral level.
Besides their academic studies, students at our faculty are also encouraged to get involved with other aspects of a vibrant university life such as in sports, professional bodies like the IEM student chapter and cultural societies such as the Mahasiswa Anak Sabah Sarawak and Mandarin Language Society, to name a few. The faculty also has its very own students’ club named CIVER UMP which organizes various activities and talks related to civil engineering every year.
Now I would like to encourage you to explore our faculty website in order to know us better, and I sincerely hope that you find our website useful. Please do not hesitate to contact any staff or member of our faculty if you need any clarification regarding our faculty, we will be most pleased to assist you.
