Megaprojects, sustainability and increasing urban populations are testing our infrastructure networks. Develop the knowledge and skills to improve and facilitate daily life with a BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering with Foundation Year degree at Salford. Creaking transport networks and dwindling water supplies are not the only 21st century challenges facing civil engineers. An increasingly digitsied and connected world is driving greater efficiencies and sustainable practice. With growing demand for qualified civil engineers, progressing on to our full BEng course is the gateway to a challenging and rewarding profession. This Foundation Year is an effective bridging course for applicants who do not meet the entry requirements for the BEng degree. Learning takes place in our Peel Park campus, minutes from central Manchester, home to world-famous feats of engineering and the largest construction hub outside London. Based on the principles of civil engineering, you’ll follow a hands-on approach to develop the skills you’ll need in your career. You’ll complete a range of modules to develop your maths and physics knowledge, so you have the confidence and ability required for higher-level engineering study. You’ll gain awareness of social, legal and environmental issues that are associated with the role of a senior engineer. You’ll study a broad range of engineering subjects to prepare you for a wide variety of careers. Led by our academic engineering team, our Foundation Year will give you the capabilities to take your passion for engineering further. On successful completion, this course will provide a seamless entry on to our full Civil Engineering degree course. Our Civil Engineering courses scored 95% for overall satisfaction in the National Student Survey 2020 (University of Salford analysis of unpublished NSS 2020 data) Features • Gain understanding and ability to fulfil a range of civil engineering surveying tasks, land surveying and quantity surveying • Develop your ability to design simple structural steel, analyse statically indeterminate structures and design complex structures • Identify and manage environmental issues and associated risks relating to civil engineering, including water, transport, landscape, heritage and biodiversity • Learn about materials and their fundamental behaviour, including construction materials, geology, soil mechanics and laboratory testing.
