Develop practical and technical skills to design and engineer the built environment. Use integrated and creative solutions to engineer a sustainable future. Our course is for students who want to ask difficult questions about the future of civil engineering. You’ll push the boundaries of design and construction to generate new ideas for our infrastructure and cities. Your knowledge will enable you to integrate energy, sustainability and environmental design. In your first two years, you will learn the foundations of materials, geotechnics, structures and digital design. You will develop the fundamental engineering design skills and attributes, including ingenuity and communication skills, that are essential for exploring aspects of infrastructure and the built environment. Our courses draw on the strengths of a joint department with architecture, offering a different experience from most universities. Cross-disciplinary group work mirrors the professional relationships you'll experience in your career, and you’ll develop the imaginative approaches and skills needed to tackle a wide range of civil engineering projects. You can move between our Civil Engineering and Structural and Architectural Engineering courses, as well as decide whether you want to go on placement, up to the end of your second year. Learn from experts in the field You’ll learn from leading academics with expertise in civil, structural and architectural engineering. Their collaborations in industry and research feed into undergraduate teaching and contribute to your learning experience. Also, visiting practice-based tutors bring their wealth of design experience to support projects and enrich teaching. Use specialist facilities You’ll develop your abilities in purpose-built design studios that foster an atmosphere of creativity and collaboration. You’ll also have access to a range of laboratories to support you throughout your civil engineering studies. These include structures, hydraulics, soils and materials research laboratories. We also house specific teaching and computer laboratories, and a 3D fabrication workshop. We’ll teach you to use specialist model-making equipment such as wood and metal working machinery, 3D printers, CNC routers and laser cutters. This will enable you to realise and test your engineering solutions. Start your future here As a Bath graduate, you’ll possess a high level of creative ability and excellent communication and people skills. You could go on to work as an engineering or structural designer, a site engineer or a project manager in the construction industry, where your knowledge, creativity, problem-solving and people skills are highly valued. Some of our graduates continue their studies with us or at other universities, pursuing careers in academia or research.

Points of entry
The following entry points are available for this course:
- Year 1
Open University credits Typical offer Pass units worth 120 credits including a minimum of a Pass 2 with 80% in a relevant Level 2 Mathematics unit worth at least 30 credits. Typically, we would be looking for you to have studied units worth at least 120 credits including at least 30 credits at Level 2 in Mathematics. Units in Physics are recommended but not essential. We would ideally be looking for you to be taking units including MST124: Essential Mathematics 1 and MST224: Mathematical Methods. This information is a guide and we consider students applying with Open University Credits on a case-by-case basis. We will consider your application carefully and take note of any previous qualifications or relevant work experience. We may be able to consider alternative units to those listed. Please contact us to discuss your profile. Taking OU credits may be counted as degree-level study by the Student Loans Company and therefore may be counted as previous study and have an impact on your ability to access student loans for the entirety of your chosen degree. We recommend that you discuss this in detail with the SLC before following this progression route to the University of Bath.
