About the Course Civil Engineers have to keep pace with global developments to meet the demands of a rapidly changing world. This course is designed to equip graduates with the knowledge, skills and professional behaviours Civil Engineers need. You'll learn to deploy digital technology to create virtual models of your engineering designs to build and shape the world around you, as well as exploring how to mitigate the impact of climate change on infrastructure and society. You will study engineering problem analysis, design, engineering practice, sustainability and climate emergencies, structural analysis, advanced modelling, automation and digital technologies, advanced materials, energy use of new buildings and transport, hydraulics and geotechnical engineering. You'll work in specialist laboratories, using concrete, hydraulics, materials, soils and structures, and you'll experience real-life scenarios through site visits and field trips. Practical work includes surveying, model-making, engineering drawing and digital technology. Future Skills Embedded within every course curriculum and throughout the whole Kingston experience, Future Skills will play a role in shaping you to become a future-proof graduate, providing you with the skills most valued by employers such as problem-solving, digital competency, and adaptability.

Qualification requirements

T Levels T Levels are an alternative to A levels, apprenticeships and other further education courses. T Level focuses on vocational skills and can help students into skilled employment, higher education and/or apprenticeships. Students who study T Level spend 80% of the course in the classroom, learning the skills that employers need. The other 20% is a meaningful industry placement, where they put these skills into action. T Levels are the equivalent to three A levels and we recognise the UCAS tariff points they attract in line with other qualifications that aid progression to higher education.
