The Bachelor Program Full-Time

The Bachelor Program in Civil Engineering is composed of three years of full-time academic study. The first year of the degree program present a broad, practical overview of the field of civil engineering. During this first year, presentation of the course material is primarily delivered at a foundational level with engineering fundamentals stressed and reinforced across the curriculum.

A strong understanding of practical and physical principles is fostered and promoted and an abundance of learning opportunities is provided to apply these fundamentals to the solution of real-world design scenarios that would be encountered by both technologists and engineers. Throughout the program, opportunities are presented to students to strengthen their graphical, written, and oral communication skills. A significant amount of time is directly related to hands-on training in material testing, surveying, manual and computer-aided drafting, and instruction in the use of engineering software tools.

The second and third year are mainly composed of basic engineering courses involving the study and application of the principles of geotechnical engineering (behavior of soils, design of foundations), structural engineering (analysis and design of reinforced concrete and steel structures), hydraulics engineering (flow of water in pipes, open channels, water resources), and the general systems approach to engineering problems. The final two years of the degree program are academically rigorous, with thorough investigation of the theoretical foundations of civil engineering science and design topics.

At the same time, the practical application of civil engineering knowledge is presented and applied through course assignments and project work. Additionally, the student is challenged to view the engineer's role from an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspective. The role of the engineer as a manager is also developed. In the final two years of the program, the student's educational experience is enriched through a series of liberal studies courses. To further develop engineering skills for professional practice, the degree concludes with the completion of a summer practice.

Students whose GPA is below 3.0 are obliged to enter the comprehensive exam. The program is open to candidates with a variety of backgrounds and interests. Candidates are eligible to apply, who are proficient in English, and have above average Grade Point Average. International students are encouraged to apply. To learn more about the application procedure, admission requirements, and financial aid, visit Epoka's Registrar menu or Admissions menu.

The students are also exposed to an introduction to construction management and economics which are essential to every practicing engineer. Summer practice at the end of the second and third year, and courses at the last year aim to provide a Civil Engineering perspective to students.

Curriculum of the program includes elective courses, which give an opportunity to students to improve their professional skills according to their interests. Some of them are nontechnical and free elective courses, the remaining are civil engineering electives. The requirements for a Diploma in Civil Engineering include the completion of minimum of 180 ECTS credits of formal course work and 60 days of approved practical training.

In the global industry, there is a strong demand for Civil Engineers particularly those who combine technical skills with good communication skills and team-work ability. Graduates of the department qualify for a responsible position in the civil engineering industry in analysis, design and construction management. Prospective employers include, but are not limited to, construction contractors, consulting firms, industrial firms and various government agencies.

Business Information



Business entities aren’t one-size-fits-all. But, several options benefit and protect SaaS founders and their companies. Whether you need to make Venture Capitalists happy, operate with a board, or avoid paying corporate tax – there’s an option that’ll suit. We aren’t lawyers or accountants, but here are a few of the basics to point you in the right direction.

Each state has different formation rules based on the business entity type. There are various formation fees, dues, tax regulations, etc. in each state. Check out this map to view specific entity information for your state. You don’t necessarily have to form a business in the state you reside in/are headquartered in – although, it may be beneficial in the long run to register within your state.

Most business founders I’ve come across register LLCs (at least in the beginning). Limited Liability Companies **are great because they protect your personal assets. Example: if your company was ever to be sued (heaven forbid) or even go bankrupt, your personal home, credit, and vehicles wouldn’t be on the line.

The best benefit of being a Limited Liability Company is that you avoid corporate tax. With a LLC, your income will pass through the company to your personal tax records. You’ll only pay tax on the net profit of your business, and you’ll only pay tax on that amount the same way (and at the same rate) you pay personal taxes.

Other benefits of a LLC are that you can avoid all the bureaucracy that comes with being a C Corp. You’ll avoid the headaches of writing corporate bylaws, choosing and listening to a board. Instead of wasting time with all the bureaucracy, you can get your company registered and get your product launched.

A Subchapter S Corporation is kind of a mix between a LLC and a Corporation. It’s usually an election, meaning, you first form a LLC, and then you file a S Corp form telling the government that you want to be a S Corp.

As a S Corp, you get all the personal asset protection as with the LLC. You also have the advantage of pass-through taxes like with a Limited Liability Company (paying tax on net profit at the individual level), but you also have stock to give to up to 100 shareholders.

With such stock, a S Corp might allow for investment from an angel investor or two, but VCs will still prefer a corporation. Corporations require corporate bylaws, a board, recorded meeting minutes, etc. And, you’ll pay corporate tax rates since your income won’t pass-through to your personal income as it would under a LLC or S Corp.

C Corps also protect the personal assets of founders and shareholders. Another benefit of a Corporation is that you can grant investors (particularly Venture Capital firms and accelerators/incubators) preferred stock options – which, in addition to a solid valuation, is most likely what they’ll want. Preferred stock is kind of like a hybrid of a stock and a bond – it offers a better prediction of income for holders.

You’ll need to be a C Corp when it comes time to sell or IPO. This is because as a C Corp, you’ll have plenty of stock to give away and won’t be limited to 100 shareholders like a S Corp. Investors like Delaware C Corps as the state is a tax haven with all kinds of sweet tax breaks. A C Corp is also the best way to give your employees stock.

Many a company start as a LLC as it’s quick to get off the ground and requires little extra work like writing bylaws (yuck) – giving you more time to prep for launch. When you find VCs sniffing around or decide you want to sell some stock, then you can always switch your entity from LLC to a corporation. Just make sure you file what’s called a short year tax return for the LLC once it’s dissolved.

Before you make any of these decisions, you should speak with your accountant. If you don’t have an accountant, get one, AT LEAST consult with one about how you’ll be taxed and what formation might be best for you. Before you make any switches (from LLC to C Corp or whatevs) you should absolutely speak with a corporate attorney.

Graduate degrees


This website addresses questions typical of individuals interested in graduate study of economics. The website provides a centralized location for obtaining objective and comprehensive information about graduate training in economics.

The Ph.D. is the most advanced degree in the field of economics and is generally considered a research degree. Earning a Ph.D. typically involves several years of post-baccalaureate study, including advanced courses in microeconomics, macroeconomics, quantitative analysis, and econometrics, followed by courses in the student's field of specialization.

The fields of specialization are classified by the Journal of Economic Literature. Offerings and strengths of faculty by field differ by Ph.D. program. Most programs require students to pass one or more examinations (often called preliminary, qualifying, or core examinations) before they are allowed to continue their Ph.D. studies by taking courses in their fields of specialization.

After all coursework is completed, students develop a research plan for a doctoral dissertation. In many Ph.D. programs the proposed research path is the subject of an oral examination before the research path is approved. The Ph.D. is awarded after successful defense of the doctoral dissertation, usually during a final oral examination.

The Master's degree in economics can be viewed as a terminal degree or as additional preparation (beyond the baccalaureate degree) for more advanced study. In some cases a Master's degree is routinely awarded after completion of a designated phase of a Ph.D. program.

Earning a Master's degree in economics typically involves two years of post-baccalaureate study, generally including courses in microeconomics, macroeconomics, quantitative analysis, and econometrics. Terminal Master's degree requirements generally include completion of a Master's thesis.

An increasing number of universities offer joint Ph.D. degrees in economics and other fields. The most common of these are joint Ph.D/J.D. degrees and joint Ph.D.s in Economics and Finance. Some schools also offer joint Ph.D. degrees in Economics and Public Policy, in Economics and Statistics, and in Economics and Applied Mathematics. There are also many joint Master's degree programs that combine economics with other disciplines.

Students from a wide variety of backgrounds earn graduate degrees in economics. This includes economics and non-economics majors, those with and without prior graduate training, and those with and without prior economics employment experience.

To decide which program is the best fit, potential students should examine their own qualifications (including their GRE scores, their GPA, and their mathematical preparation) as well as the methodological approach, fields of specialization, predominant ideology, size of program, program culture (cooperative, competitive, etc.), typical time-to-degree, required examinations, financial aid, emphasis on mathematics, job prospects, and location of the programs to which they apply.

For those who wish to pursue academic careers, the availability of training in teaching methods during graduate school may also be a consideration.

Some applicants find it useful to contact students at their target programs to find out about current students' perceptions and experiences. Keep in mind that faculty tend to be fairly mobile throughout their careers, so it may be risky to choose a program out of a desire to work with one specific faculty member.
