As part of this course, you’ll:

  • Gain an understanding of the scientific and mathematical principles and methodologies that underpin Civil Engineering
  • Build your understanding of structures, hydraulics, geotechnical engineering, management, health, safety and welfare, surveying, materials science and sustainable development
  • Look at using materials in new ways, the principles of experimental design, and the engineering behind roads, bridges and other major structures
  • Know what's needed to investigate and evaluate different engineering situations

BEng (Hons) Accredited CEng (Partial)

This degree is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) comprising the Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Institute of Highway Engineers, and the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation on behalf of the Engineering Council 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. Visit the JBM website for further information and details of further learning programmes for CEng.

You could study this course over four years and complete an integrated masters.

You’ll understand how civil engineering works and know how to use your knowledge to solve structural problems. As well as honing your technical expertise, you’ll develop a flair for communication, problem solving and project management. We’ll prepare you to play a leading role in industry by nurturing your ability to manage and work in team environments.

Our modern, well-equipped laboratories will give you the chance to get involved with industry standard tools and testing. We'll show you how to examine the strength of materials for structures, and understand the latest geotechnical and structural analysis software packages.

We offer great links with industry, thanks to our teaching team which includes Chartered Engineers who have extensive experience across different areas of engineering. Guest lectures and talks on engineering projects will provide you with great opportunities to network with professional engineers and understand how what you're learning can be applied to real situations.
