Teesside University, Middlesbrough has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Summary: This integrated master’s course (including a work placement year) produces industry-ready graduates. Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with designing, constructing and maintaining the physical and naturally built environment. Put simply, civil engineers build bridges, tunnels, canals, dams and flood protection measures, tall buildings and other large structures. Course details: The next few decades promise to be among the most challenging ever for the civil engineering community. Progressive urbanisation, increasing populations, ongoing economic development, climate change and the persistent risk of extreme events already present many threats to infrastructure. This course incorporates key aspects of civil engineering such as structures, geotechnics, fluid mechanics, materials and construction management. We have accessible, professional lecturers and have combined an employability-focused curriculum with manageable group sizes to give you one of the best student experiences available. After the course: Typical roles include construction project management, building/civil engineering for contractors or consultants, architectural practices, local authorities or government agencies. Our recent graduates have been employed by Arup, Birse Civils, Jacobs, WSP Group, Interserve, Atkins Global and Aker Solutions.

You are taught by a combination of methods including conventional lectures, tutorials, case-based learning, design workshops, e-learning and seminar sessions. Additional technical visits, field courses and attendance at professional meetings supplement your learning experience. Your programme also involves substantial research-based projects. One module in each year of your study involves a compulsory one-week block delivery period. This intensive problem-solving week, provides you with an opportunity to focus your attention on particular problems and enhance your team-working and employability skills. Site visits are important components of the programme, allowing you to experience the scale and complexity of construction and to develop practical skills. Laboratory-based sessions are used to develop practical skills and to reinforce your knowledge. In-course assessment ranges from practical laboratory reports and engineering calculations, through to using 3D visualisation tools, collaborative project work, and making presentations to practising engineers from industry. We use end examinations within a number of modules in each year.
Professionally accredited courses provide industry-wide recognition of the quality of your qualification.
