The core subjects at the heart of the degree – structures, materials, geotechnics, transport, infrastructure, engineering and construction management – will equip you with key expertise and enhance your employability. You will benefit from strong well-established links with industry During the course you will study a wide range of subjects, beginning with the fundamentals of civil engineering, including construction materials, mechanics and mathematical skills. You will spend a year in industry as part of the course before completing your studies in year four with a research project and a design project as well as the opportunity to specialise in either transport, infrastructure, engineering or construction management. The skills you will gain are in high demand and, as a graduate, you will be able to contribute to the ongoing development of the built environment in which we live and work.
Year One Modules in your first year will build your fundamental knowledge of the sector and relevant disciplines. To introduce you to the world of civil engineering, topics covered will include construction, materials, mechanics and mathematical skills. Introduction to Civil Engineering Construction Materials and Surveying BIM for Construction Civil Engineering Mathematics Building and Design and Construction Technology Year Two In the second year, you will build on your existing knowledge and advance your understanding of the civil engineering sector through more specialist modules. Structural Analysis and Numerical Modelling Sustainable Materials and Design Fluid Mechanics Construction Contract Management and Administration 2 Geotechnics 1 Transport Infrastructure Engineering Year Three Optional Placement This year will feature a main research project, as well as a design project. Your choice of additional modules will enable you to specialise in either transport infrastructure engineering or construction management.
