Become an Incorporated Engineer (IEng) on our Joint Board of Moderators-accredited course. Mix vital theory with hands-on learning as you prepare for a successful career in civil engineering. This course has been validated to include an optional Sandwich Placement year in industry.
Civil engineering means getting out there and making a difference to the world around us. Major projects like roads, buildings, tunnels and flood protection are all designed, constructed and improved by civil engineers.

Here at Anglia Ruskin, you’ll explore the concepts, theories and principles of civil engineering, and its underpinning science and mathematics. But you’ll also develop your practical skills and your competence to work as a professional.

You’ll make full use of our specialist testing and research labs. Learn about structural forms, loading, structural analysis and the behaviour of materials. Apply quantitative methods and relevant computer software.

In preparation for professional practice, you’ll learn to work as part of a design team – and look at issues relating to the law, human resource management, health and safety, ethics and risk. Site visits and guest lecturers will connect you with industry.

We also offer our Constructionarium which is a week-long construction experience.

Our BSc (Hons) course focuses on the practical skills of engineering principles, standards and codes of practice. Our BEng (Hons) course offers more theory and maths.

Accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators acting on behalf of ICE, IStructE, CIHT and IHE for the Engineering Council UK, this degree is accredited as fully satisfying the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng). See for further information.
