Civil Civil

The candidates who are sitting for the Civil Engineering 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 in the local practice.


1. Civil engineering practice in Malaysia


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

  1. GENERAL MATTER
    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 for Completion and 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 and only on those sections of the Act (or regulations) dealing with scheduled waste discharge and air quality.
  2. GEOTECHNICAL WORKS
    1. Soil Investigation Works
      1. Planning of subsurface investigation field works and sampling
        • For filling (embankment or platform) in soft ground.
        • For cut and fill in hill-site development and roadworks on hilly terrain.
        • For earthworks and foundation (cut and fill} on good flat ground.
        • For foundation design (shallow and deep foundation) in soft ground.
        • For foundation design on hill-site.
        • For foundation design in limestone area.
      2. Planning of laboratory testing and interpretation of results
        1. Types of laboratory tests for items listed in B2 (a) above.
        2. Interpretation of laboratory tests for necessary soil and rock design parameters for items listed above.
    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.).
        5. Erosion, sediment, control plan (ESCP).
      2. Design of Earthworks for hill-site
        1. Selection of subsoil and rock parameters for analysis (e.g. shear strength, groundwater levels, 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.
        4. Earth retaining structure.
      3. Design of Filling / Embankment on Soft Ground
        1. Selection of subsoil parameters for analysis (e.g. shear strength, stiffness and consolidation parameters).
        2. Analysis and design of slope stability for fill/embankment.
        3. Settlement analysis (e.g. immediate settlement, consolidation settlement, secondary compression, etc.).
        4. Ground treatment selection.
        5. Ground treatment analysis and design (commonly used vertical drains, geotextile, surcharging, etc.).
