Overview

This broad-based Civil Engineering programme provides sound academic training for the professional engineer. It is suitable for those who have not decided on an area of specialism and wish to explore a range of subjects under the overarching topic of Civil Engineering, or do not wish to pursue a four-year degree programme.

If you later wish to become a Chartered Engineer, you may transfer to one of our MEng programmes at the end of Year Two; otherwise, you will need to complete additional study as a matching section. This might involve an integrated programme of study, such as a Masters degree, and work with an employer.

Civil Engineering graduates are in great demand. Careers in Civil and Architectural Engineering offer the highest paid jobs for graduates in the UK (source: Telegraph 10 best paid jobs for graduates, Aug 2015).

You will be introduced to the essentials: Structural Design and Analysis, Fluid Mechanics, Land Surveying, Soil Mechanics, Highway Engineering, Hydraulics, and Environmental Studies, amongst others.

Year One includes a four-day Surveying field course and a one-week full-time CDIO project, where teams of students work together to design, build and test a small scale bridge. You will study mathematics relevant to engineering, Structural materials, Solids and Structures, Computer-Aided Drawing and Design, and will be introduced to the principles of management for the construction industry. Site visits are integral to the programme, as are various individual and group design exercises including an opportunity to design your own full-scale bridge.

An exciting part of the second year of our programme is a week of real, hands on construction experience at ‘The Constructionarium’. The Constructionarium takes place at a two hectare site, specifically designed and built to provide a range of challenging teaching and learning conditions for students. (There is an additional cost of up to £300 for the Constructionarium).

The programme gives you the opportunity to undertake an individual research project in your final year and you can choose particular areas of specialisation from a broad range of optional modules including Town Planning, Traffic Design and Management, Design and Construction of Roads and Airfields, Applied Hydrology, Foundation Engineering, Structural Steelwork, Timber and Masonry, Coastal and Estuarine Processes and many more.
