This degree gives you the knowledge and skills to design civil and infrastructure engineering facilities that are resilient and sustainable. You will study structural, geotechnical, and hydraulic engineering, with a focus on digital and data-driven collaborative engineering design for a low-carbon future. Prepare for a career in civil and infrastructure engineering, working either with consultants or contractors and contributing to a more sustainable future. You will study structures, geotechnics, hydraulics, and sustainability, applied to civil and infrastructure engineering. We will build your professional engineering skills over three years, focusing on innovative and sustainable solutions to civil and infrastructural engineering problems. Individual and group engineering design projects will help to demonstrate your knowledge, skills and employability.
- Benefit from strong links to industry through guest lectures and projects designed by high profile engineers
- Access world-leading laboratories, including our flagship Geotechnical Centrifuge Facility, where you will conduct research and test theories
- Get hands-on experience with concrete, soil and other materials testing equipment
- Take an optional placement year to boost your employability – recent placements have included Balfour Beatty, AECOM, Arup, Interserve and Network Rail
- Enjoy easy access to leading civil and structural engineering contractors and consultants, thanks to our central London location
- Fast-track your progress to Chartered Engineer status, with a degree that meets all academic requirements for professional registration.
You’ll develop a strong technical background for civil and infrastructure engineering. Year 1 Our shared engineering first year allows you to build a firm foundation in mathematics, engineering, physics, fluid mechanics, material, electronics and programming. You will take diverse engineering design projects. -The Engineering in Society - Social responsibility (15 credits) -Engineering Design 1 (15 credits) -Introduction to Mechanics of materials and manufacturing (15 credits) -Electronics - including circuits, digital and analog electronics (15 credits) -Introduction to programming (15 credits) -Engineering Science (15 credits) -Mathematics 1 (15 credits) -Introduction to Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics (15 credits) Year 2 You will begin to specialise through modules such as geology, soil mechanics, materials and structures, data analysis and surveying. In partnership with local engineering consultancies, you will complete a design project. -The Engineer in Society: Sustainability and Circular Economy (15 credits) -Mathematics 2 (15 credits) -Engineering Design 2 (15 credits) -Fluid Mechanics (15 credits) -Geology and Materials (15 credits) -Structural and Soil Mechanics (15 credits) -Sensor Systems, Instrumentation and Surveying (15 credits) -Data Analysis for Engineers (15 credits) Year 3 Deepen your expertise with applied modules in analysis and design of typical geotechnical, hydraulic and structural forms, using computational analysis techniques and management. You will undertake the design of urban infrastructure. -Individual project (30 credits) -The Engineer in society: Infrastructure for Net Zero (15 credits) -Finite Element Analysis of Structures (15 credits) -Geotechnical Engineering (15 credits) -Design of Urban Infrastructure (15 credits) -Hydraulics and Marine Infrastructure (15 credits) -Construction Management and BIM (15 credits)
Assessment is by coursework and examinations. Group learning and communication skills are addressed through design studies and presentations. Practical and technical skills are assessed through laboratory work, data analysis and project reports. Grades obtained in each year count towards the final degree classification, with increasing weight given to the later years.
