The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) was one of the three pioneering engineering schools when the university first started as Nanyang Technological Institute in 1982, offering the Bachelor of Engineering programme in Civil Engineering. It was then called the School of Civil and Structural Engineering (CSE). In 2002, it was renamed School of Civil and Environmental Engineering due to increasing emphasis on the environment and the significant strength of the school had gained in this area. Thereafter, the Bachelor of Environmental Engineering programme was introduced in 2003. In 2004, in addition to the existing Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering programmes, a new undergraduate programme in Maritime Studies was inaugurated.
The BSc (Maritime Studies) curriculum aims to provide students with both depth and breadth. The programme structure is flexible and broad base. Students will be required to complete:
- Foundation courses in mathematics, social sciences, business and technology.
- Shipping specialist courses in organization and management of shipping companies, international shipping logistics, maritime law, marine insurance, shipping strategy, and a research project.
- Prescribed electives for specialization in the programme, and General Education Requirement courses for broadening the learning experience.
In addition to the above, the more rigorous BSc(Maritime Studies) with Business Major curriculum includes core business courses in accounting, business law, company law, principles of taxation, business environment, financial analysis & reporting, marketing, and organization behavior & design.
