Study your Civil Engineering BEng (Hons) at ARU and apply its technologies to some of society’s most complex problems. On this Chelmsford-based degree you’ll be hands-on, going on site and tackling practical exercises in our specialist workshops. Get your hard hat on for a week-long construction project under real site conditions and gain further experience on a placement year. After graduating from our Civil Engineering BEng degree course, you can work towards Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. Designing and building structures like bridges, roads, airports and flood defences demands a high degree of technical skill. Our Civil Engineering BEng course will teach you to approach civil engineering projects competently, responsibly, ethically and safely. Civil engineering changes our world – from buildings and transport to the environment and civil protection. It covers everything from creative concepts to physical construction and maintenance. Designing and building structures like bridges, roads, airports and flood defences demands a high degree of technical skill. On our newly designed course your learning will be based around the civil engineering project and hands-on learning, giving you the chance to immediately apply the theory you learn in class to address the challenges of the project. You will learn how to carry out site investigations, select the best materials for the job, analyse and design structures and engineering systems, plan the construction process and assess and mitigate the environmental impact of the project using our specialist workshops and labs. You will learn how to carry out land surveys and use state of the art CAD systems and specialist software to design and analyse complex systems. When studying our Civil Engineering course, you’ll learn a range of transferable skills, including how to manage projects and contracts; statistics; management techniques; and principles of IT, preparing you for industry work, advising clients, working closely with other engineers and stake holders. You’ll become a creative problem solver and a confident communicator, able to work well independently and in a team.
Throughout the course, we’ll use a range of assessment methods to help you and your tutors measure your progress. Besides exams, you’ll demonstrate your learning though a mix of assignments, group work, presentations, drawings, lab work and projects.
