The course is for you if you would like to work as a Civil Engineer. Civil Engineers are important to the infrastructure of society; they design, plan and construct roads, bridges, pipelines and buildings. They have an excellent grasp of maths, science and technology and make use of the best resources and techniques. The civil engineering pathway provides the relevant vocational knowledge and skills necessary to pursue a career in site engineering, structural engineering design, civil engineering design and transport engineering design. Students will have the opportunity to apply critical reasoning and analysis techniques to solve engineering problems, using industry standards and appropriate codes of practice. The course has been developed in consultation with local industry, and combines theoretical engineering with the focus being the applications of putting the theory into practice.
What will I study? Core modules include: Individual Project (Pearson Set) Construction Technology Science & Materials Construction Practice and Management Construction Information (Drawing, Detailing, Specification) Mathematics for Construction Principles of Structural Design Civil Engineering Technology Modules offered may vary.
Pearson BTECs combine a student-centred approach with a flexible, unit-based structure. Students are required to apply their knowledge to a variety of assignments and activities, with a focus on the holistic development of practical, interpersonal and higher level thinking skills. Assessment reflects not only what the student knows but also what he or she can do to succeed in employment and higher education in an ethical manner. Pearson BTEC Higher Nationals have always allowed for a variety of forms of assessment evidence to be used, provided they are suited to the type of learning outcomes being assessed. For many units, the practical demonstration of skills is necessary and, for others, students will need to carry out their own research and analysis, working independently or as part of a team.
