Department of Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering as a field is wide-ranging and concrete, directly relating to how people live and move. Tsinghua University¡¯s undergraduate program in Civil Engineering seeks to cultivate students¡¯ knowledge of mechanics and mathematics, preparing them to engage in civil engineering project planning, engineering design, research, development, construction, and management.  The undergraduate program in Civil Engineering also equips students with a high level of proficiency in foreign languages, computer skills, creative thinking, international perspectives, and good communication skills. It trains students in the basic theory and practice of registered structural engineers so that they are qualified to work in a range of fields, including design, research, construction, education and management in the fields of building, underground structure, bridge and road engineering, earthquake resistance and disaster prevention, and traffic engineering.

The undergraduate course in the Department of Civil Engineering is four years old. Approximately fifty percent of students in the Department receive scholarships from Tsinghua and the College annually. Outstanding undergraduate students can be recommended to study for a Masters degree or a PhD degree directly without needing to take the entrance examination. About 70% of the graduates are recommended to Tsinghua, other colleges in China, or foreign universities to pursue a Masters or PhD degree. Other graduates proceed to work in design units, the real estate enterprises, construction enterprises, financial institutions, state institutions or other units. Tsinghua University¡¯s program in Civil Engineering is well-regarded by employers in engineering.

Department of Hydraulic Engineering

Undergraduate students in the Department of Hydraulic Engineering are educated in an interdisciplinary manner. In the recent years, approximately 90 students per year are admitted to the undergraduate program in Hydraulic and Hydropower Engineering. The training program in this department focuses on the harmony between humans and nature and the sustainable use of water resources in China, for the purpose of training students' comprehensive knowledge and abilities in water resources, water environment, water disasters, water management, water economy, and water projects. As part of the ¡®undergraduate-master¡¯ approach to study, the undergraduate course of study includes professional courses such as Natural Science, Engineering Science, Humanities, Social Science, Water Resources Engineering, Water Conservancy and Hydropower Engineering, Foundation and Underground Engineering, Port and Waterway Engineering. With regards t student education, in addition to the long-employed Instructor-Tutor model, the undergraduate supervisor mode has been recently introduced. A full scholarship system exists in the Department of Hydraulic and Hydropower Engineering. In addition to university-level scholarships, there are several department scholarships such as the Guangdou Zhang scholarship, the Zhaoyu Wu scholarship, the Yalong River hydropower scholarship, and the Yunnan Huigu scholarship. More than 2/3 of students receive one or more scholarships each year. In 2016, the major of ¡®Hydraulic and Hydropower Engineering¡¯ was renamed to the major of ¡®Hydraulic Science and Engineering¡¯.

Department of Construction Management

Construction Management seeks to cultivate students¡¯ knowledge of natural science and engineering, as well as strong management skills. The undergraduate program in Construction Management also equips students with a high level of proficiency in English and computer skills. Students gain practical experience in construction, such as project evaluator, consultant, project manager, architect, and engineer and project manager. After graduation, they are prepared to begin careers in construction and real estate project management, such as project planning, evaluation, design, construction, and operation and maintenance. Students who have completed the four years of undergraduate training program will be awarded a Bachelor of Engineering.

The main research areas of the teachers in the Department of Construction management are: the construction and real estate development and re, construction and real estate policies and regulations, the international construction market, construction project management, project evaluation, project financing, project safety management, engineering insurance, construction technology, construction and real estate ination, city economics, real estate economics, real estate finance, real estate investment, real estate appraisal, property management, construction and real estate management of the international comparison. A large number of high-level scientific research work entrusted by the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ministry of Construction and other ministries, local governments and institutions, relevant international organizations and institutions and domestic and foreign enterprises are undertaken actively by these teachers. We participated in a large number of engineering research and consulting projects including the Yangtze River Three Gorges Project and the 2008 Beijing Olympic venues. In addition, the Department of Construction Management is located in the international high-level education, training, research, and consulting Institute, and has established stable and cooperative relations with international organizations such as the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC), Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), and Project Management Institute (PMI).

Outstanding undergraduate students can be recommended to study for Masters or PhD degrees directly without needing to take the entrance examination. Graduates are welcomed by employers. Graduates embark on careers in real estate development, engineering management and consulting, finance and investment, foreign projects and other enterprises, and institutions for design, teaching, research and public management.
