Anglia Ruskin University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Learn to solve some of society’s most complex problems by applying civil engineering techniques and technologies. Get hands-on experience on site and in our labs, and gain the practical skills employers want. You could even do a work placement year. Our course is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) acting on behalf of ICE, IstructE, CIHT and IHIE for the Engineering Council UK. This means that, with further learning, our course leads to CEng status.
Civil engineering changes our world – from buildings and transport to the environment and civil protection. It covers everything from creative concepts to physical construction and maintenance.
Designing and building structures like bridges, roads, airports and flood defences demands a high degree of technical skill. Our course will teach you to approach civil engineering projects competently, responsibly, ethically and safely.
You’ll already have an interest in maths, design and construction. You’ll be keen to explore your creativity, and aware of pressing global issues like overpopulation and climate change. While at Anglia Ruskin, you’ll learn about health and safety, sustainable development and environment issues within the context of civil engineering.
Engineers work in professional practice, advising clients. Therefore, you’ll learn a range of transferable skills, including how to manage projects and contracts; statistics; management techniques; and principles of IT. You’ll become a creative problem solver and a confident communicator, able to work well independently and in a team.
Our facilities are the perfect places to test and research different materials and designs. You’ll work in specialist labs for geotechnics, hydraulics, structures, engineering materials and concrete testing. In the first year you will attend Constructionarium, a week long field course, and build for real an iconic structure (just a little smaller than the original). You'll also go out on site visits, and hear guest lecturers from industry. You might even want to enhance your skills and CV by doing a work placement year.
We also offer our Constructionarium which is a week-long construction experience.
This BEng course differs from our Civil Engineering BSc (Hons) because it delves deeper into the theory of civil engineering and includes more maths. It leads to chartered engineer (CEng) status.
This degree is accredited as:
1. fully satisfying the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng).
2. partially satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng). A programme of accredited Further Learning will be required to complete the educational base for CEng.
Year one, core modulesLand Surveying Geotechnics and Engineering Geology Safe Civil Engineering Construction Mathematics for Civil Engineers 1 IT and Research Elements of Engineering Design Engineering Science and Materials Design and Detailing in CAD for Civil Engineers
