Civil Engineering & Quantity Surveying
About our programmes
The Department of Civil Engineering & Quantity Surveying offers three distinct programmes; Civil Engineering, Construction Engineering Management and Quantity Surveying.
Professionals in these areas help to meet the everyday needs of people by developing and improving homes, hospitals, airports, roads, railways, dams, energy, clean water, towers, tunnels, bridges and megastructures. In providing such infrastructure, they not only have a direct impact on public life, but also on the development and economic success of a nation.
On each of these programmes, students will undertake practical training in parallel with their academic studies. Extensive hands-on training will not only ensure that students can successfully meet TNA competency requirements, it will provide valuable insight into the trades that they will work with after graduating from MTC.

- fully satisfying the educational base for an Engineering Technician (EngTech)
- partially satisfying the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng)
BEng programmes in Civil Engineering and Construction Engineering Management are accredited by the JBM on behalf of the Engineering Council UK as:
- fully satisfying the educational base for an Incorporated Engineering (IEng)
MTC’s BSc in Quantity Surveying programme is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) as fully satisfying the educational base for Chartered Surveyors.
Students are awarded an Advanced Diploma on successful completion of Level 7 of the Oman Qualifications Framework (OQF) and a Bachelor’s Degree with Honours on successful completion of Level 8.
Students are also awarded a Diploma of Higher Education and/or Bachelor’s Degree with Honours from the University of Portsmouth on completion of the equivalent Levels 3, 4 and 5 (DipHE) and Level 6 (Bachelor’s Degree) of the UK Framework of Higher Education Qualifications (UK FHEQ).

Delivery and Assessment
Courses are delivered through a variety of methods on- and off-campus, including lectures, tutorials, demonstrations and simulations, case studies, practical work (fieldwork, workshop, laboratory activities) and project development. Students are expected to work individually, in groups and to undertake self-study.
Course assessment is structured around reports, essays, portfolios, presentations and examinations.
A key element of each programme is the development and assessment of Training Needs Analysis (TNA) competencies. TNA training may be delivered and assessed in academic modules, individual modules or during Department Specific Activities (DSA).
MTC, in coordination with the beneficiaries, ensures that its graduates have career opportunities after graduation in accordance with the accepted programme and the regulations
