Course summary

Construct your future in civil engineering. Studying this course will build the academic knowledge and practical experience you’ll need to join the profession. What is civil engineering? Civil engineering is behind how our modern towns and cities work. Civil engineers design, construct, maintain, upgrade, rehabilitate and repair major infrastructures used by humans while protecting the natural environment. As part of this course, you’ll: • Study an advanced technical programme that will ensure you have the skills to contribute effectively in a wide range of industry environments • Be taught by staff with a broad range of industry experience in subjects including structural engineering, water engineering, geotechnical engineering, project management and highways engineering • Study contemporary research and engineering solutions to meet global challenges, such as the climate change emergency • Take part in practical work and laboratory study using industry standard IT software • Secure work placements during the summer, and plan an optional paid placement year in industry, with the help of your course team • Be supported in recording your initial professional development for membership of the accrediting institutions, find out more in the accreditation section below BEng (Hons) Accredited CEng (Partial) This degree is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) comprising the Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Institute of Highway Engineers, and the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation on behalf of the Engineering Council as: • Fully satisfying the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng) • Partially satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) A programme of accredited further learning will be required to complete the educational base for CEng. You could study this course over four years and complete an integrated masters. Find out more Hands-on learning You’ll understand how civil engineering works and know how to use your knowledge to solve structural problems. As well as honing your technical expertise, you’ll develop a flair for communication, problem solving and project management. We’ll prepare you to play a leading role in industry by nurturing your ability to manage and work in team environments. Specialist facilities Our modern, well-equipped laboratories will give you the chance to get hands-on with industry standard tools and testing. We'll show you how to examine the strength of materials for structures and understand the latest geotechnical and structural analysis software packages. Professional guidance Personal development sessions will help you broaden your industry knowledge. The sessions are generally provided by leading professionals and will help you choose the area of civil engineering to enter on graduation. Industry links The civil engineering industry plays a key role in designing infrastructure that can help tackle the climate change emergency. We offer strong links with the profession, thanks to our teaching team which includes Chartered Engineers who have extensive experience across different areas of engineering. Guest lectures and talks on engineering projects will provide you with opportunities to network with professional engineers and understand how to apply your learning.
