Bachelor of Engineering Technology - Construction Technology & Resource Management

- Faculty of Engineering Technology -
The fastest path for career progression..
(This programme is offered as a weekday programme and a weekend programme for NVQ students. G.C.E. (A/L) students will be enrolled only for weekday programme and only if vacancies are available after giving the opportunity for NVQ Students.)

In Sri Lankan construction industry gap exists between middle level technologically qualified personnel (middle level technicians) and graduates in Civil Engineering. Aim of this degree programme is to fulfill this gap. Graduates of the proposed degree need to be equipped with both theoretical and practical competencies required to manage construction sites which involves a multitude of stakeholders and resources.

This programme has been designed aiming at national needs while giving due consideration to global trends and practices in conjunction with construction industry personnel, professional bodies together with the academia in civil engineering and allied fields to ensure that their marketability both locally and internationally.

It covers the following aspects:

  • Contract Administration 
  • Construction Law and Claim Management 
  • Building Economics 
  • Pre and Post Contract Management 
  • Measurements 
  • Micro tunneling
  • Tall and deep construction - Installation and use of tower cranes, complex shoring work, etc. 
  • Challenges in basement construction in restricted areas, Vertical transportation modes of material in high rise construction
  • Construction failures and temporary work failures and remedial methods
  • Landslide mitigation techniques and flood protection methodologies 
  • Alternative material - novel solutions to scarcity

From this year onwards, NVQ 5 holders will get a full year exempted (duration you have to spend is REDUCED BY 1 YEAR, while NVQ 6 holders will get three semesters exempted.
