The BSc Civil Engineering course is aimed toward students with aspirations to become incorporated engineers and who wish to study civil engineering with an emphasis on practice and construction. This course aims to combine the development of technical, practical and managerial skills necessary to analyse, design and manage solutions for innovative and complex engineering problems as a basis for future leadership in the civil engineering profession.
- You will have opportunities to draw on real-life case studies provided by companies such as Arcadis, CGL, Crossrail and Galliford Try.
- You will have access to industry-standard software, widely used by design and consulting engineers.
- Significant moments will be presented to apply for industrial placements* at companies, which have previously included: Atkins, Balfour Beatty, Interserve, Morgan Sindall, Mott MacDonald, Severn Trent Water and Warwickshire County Council.
- Practical activities and application of knowledge through project-led learning in design project modules.
- Exercises in the Simulation Centre (a full-scale simulated construction environment) to experience real challenges of construction management in a controlled environment and to develop professional and leadership skills.
- International field course to enhance your global awareness and experiences.
- Several optional modules available at level six to allow you to tailor courses to your specific interests. You can select from Computational Methods in Civil Engineering, Engineering Hydrology, Transport Infrastructure, Strategic Construction Project Management and Structural Design.
- Group project work with other students from other Construction and Environment related courses such as Quantity Surveying, Architectural Technology and Geography to develop attributes and skills required in a multi-disciplinary team.
This course has a common first year. The common first year enables you to work alongside students doing similar courses to you, to widen your knowledge and exposure to other subject areas and professions. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with other students, so you can share your insights and experience which will help you to develop and learn. If you discover an interest in a specific subject you have studied, upon successful completion of your first year, you could swap degrees with another course in your common first year (subject to meeting progression requirements).
