Teaching & Learning

The tabs below detail what and how you will study in each year of your course. The balance of assessments and overall workload is indicative and may be subject to change.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we are currently unable to advise on the mode of teaching for September 2021, however we will keep you updated and provide more information as soon as we can. We continue to follow government guidance and your teaching and learning will reflect the restrictions in place at the time of delivery. We currently anticipate that you may experience a blended approach – this is a mix of face-to-face, on campus and online teaching and learning. You can keep up to date with teaching and learning at Leeds Beckett via our Covid-19 website. Updated course specifications will be available in August 2021. In the meantime, our existing course specifications are available.

What you'll learn

An insight into the techniques of observation and calculations using computing technology to collect, manipulate and display geospatial data.
Take a look at the behaviour of structures - forces, stresses, strain, tension, compression and bending - and recognise the role of materials testing.
Discover the mathematical techniques and analytical processes essential in providing solutions to building services engineering problems.
Develop your knowledge of civil engineering procedures in the professional and legal working environment.
Enhance your understanding of the properties of materials in both the design and construction phases of any civil engineering project.

What you'll learn

Build your understanding of the commercial and contractual procedures involved in delivering civil engineering projects, such as preparing detailed risk assessments and recognising different contract types.
An introduction to the factors which influence the sustainability of materials within construction, helping you to appreciate the rationale behind different approaches to structural design.

This course offers the opportunity to take a ‘sandwich’ year – a year of paid employment in industry which will build your skills and experience. This is usually taken between the second and third year of your degree, typically making your course four years in total.

Students who choose the sandwich route find it helps with both their studies and getting a job after graduation. It can build your confidence, contacts, and of course your CV. Leeds Beckett advertise lots of placement opportunities and provide support in helping you find the right placement for you.
