Built Environment and Engineering


Build contacts, build experience, engineer your career

A particular feature of Built Environment & Engineering courses is the breadth and vocational relevance of the courses available, together with an emphasis on innovation in teaching and learning and the development of student capability. With close links to key accrediting industry bodies, we provide our graduates with access to full professional status. We have also achieved national and international recognition for research and consultancy.

We aim to provide a stimulating environment for education in all aspects of the Built Environment with a particular focus upon sustainability. We have a commitment to widening access and increasing participation in higher education which forms the underlying philosophy of our approach; focusing on collaborative provision regionally, nationally and internationally.
