Civil Civil

The candidates who are sitting for the PCE Civil are expected to have sufficient knowledge and understanding of the latest relevant Acts, Regulations, By-Laws, Standards, Codes of Practices, good engineering practices in Malaysia. There will be questions set on the application of engineering judgement and solving engineering issues baes on local context.

1. Civil engineering practice in Malaysia

Proficiency, experience and good working knowledge of Civil engineering practice in Malaysia covering general matter, geotechnical works, structural works and civil works as follows:

    1. Procurement & Contract (Pre and Post) administration
    2. Regulatory practice and submission procedure for civil engineers
      1. "Street, Drainage & Building Act" and the Uniform Building By Law Malaysia (UBBL) where it pertains to the civil engineer as:
        1. submitting engineer for purely civil works; and
        2. submitting engineer for structural works.
      2. Earth Works By-Laws
      3. Submission procedures for planning approval, building plan and relevant Form Gs and Form F for Certificate of Completion and Compliance (CCC) as:
        1. submitting engineer for purely civil works; and
        2. submitting engineer for structural works.
      4. Fire Services Act where it pertains to Civil engineer submission.
      5. Environmental Quality Act introductory level.
    1. Site Investigation Works
      1. Planning of site investigation field works and sampling
        • For earthworks inclusive cut and fill; and
        • For foundation design (shallow and deep foundation)
      2. Planning of laboratory testing and interpretation of results
        1. Types of laboratory tests; and
        2. Interpretation of laboratory tests for necessary soil and rock design parameters.
    2. Earthworks
      1. General Earthworks
        1. Determination of materials (acceptable materials vs unsuitable materials for filling or excavation);
        2. Compaction requirements;
        3. Construction control of filling at site (e.g. loose thickness, testing, filling layer by layer, no tipping etc.);
        4. Construction control of cutting at site (e.g. to cut from top, to turf within certain time, etc.); and
        5. Erosion, sediment, control plan (ESCP).
      2. Design of Earthworks
        1. Selection of subsoil and rock parameters for analysis (e.g. shear strength, groundwater levels, stiffness, consolidation parameter etc.);
        2. Analysis and design of slope stability for cut and fill (e.g. type of analysis and factor of safety, etc.);
        3. Slope stabilization system (soil and rock slope);
        4. Earth retaining structures;
        5. Settlement analysis (e.g. immediate settlement, consolidation settlement, secondary compression, etc.);
        6. Ground treatment selection, analysis and design; and
        7. Application of Geosynthetic (vertical drain, geotextile, geogrid etc)
