BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering


Accredited IEng degree – Accredited IEng (Full)
This degree is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) as fully satisfying the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng). The JBM consists of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE), the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT) and the Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE).
See, for further information.

This course is the first in Mauritius and Africa to be accredited by a Joint Board of Moderators(Uk), Washington Accord Institution.
The BSc(Hons) Civil Engineering course has been granted accreditation by Joint Board of Moderators(UK) for the period 2012 – 2023.See letter and certificate from Joint Board of Moderators.

Mauritius is currently experiencing a boom in the construction industry and companies in the sector are actively searching for civil engineers.In this context, Rushmore Business School is offering a Degree in Civil Engineering to equip candidates with the relevant skills to join the construction industry.

The aim of this degree programme is to provide students with a sound knowledge and understanding of the subject of Civil Engineering with an awareness of their responsibilities to society and the environment.

On completion of the BSc(Hons) Civil Engineering course, students can undertake further learning through an accredited BEng or MSc in Civil Engineering to be eligible to register as Chartered Engineer (CEng) with the Institution of Civil Engineers(UK) or as Professional Engineer with the Council of Registered Professional Engineers (CRPE) in Mauritius. See letter from Council of Registered Professional Engineers of Mauritius.
