The Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering (FKAAS) provides facilities that support teaching and learning, and caters to both research activities and consultation services. These expertly-run facilities are accessible to students, researchers and the industry. FKAAS has several laboratories that are used by our students on a daily basis for hands-on practical experience. These laboratories also form an auxiliary support system to our research centers, where our researchers use state-of-the-art equipment to focus on their exploratory and experimental research activities.


Close to 50% of the sprawling 21,066 m2 FKAAS building comprises of areas portioned for our 25 laboratories that mainly function as spaces for our students to conduct sample preparation, testing and analysis, through our student-focused, hands-on, experiential learning techniques. Furthermore, the laboratories are also used by our researchers for expanding their creativity and innovation. The laboratories are managed by the Laboratory Manager with the help of Heads of Laboratory, and manned by skilled and qualified assistant engineers, science officers and laboratory assistants.
