Overview

From the delivery of energy systems and iconic structures to water storage and provision, civil engineers create the large-scale infrastructure that makes our daily lives possible. Our civil engineering degree is designed to create civil engineering graduates who can display professional judgement and skills and knowledge.

You will leave this course equipped with the knowledge and understanding of classical core engineering principles and the ability to apply your skills creatively and responsibly to resolve real-world engineering problems.

Our BEng Civil Engineering degree is influenced by government initiatives, the guidance of our industry partners and relevant professional bodies to ensure our teaching is at the forefront of this sector. Our course is accredited by the Institute of Civil Engineers, which ensures that the skills and knowledge taught by our academics are relevant to the workplace and in line with latest developments within the industry.

Throughout your studies you will undertake local field study trips. You will also have the option to undertake a year’s paid work placement between your second and final year.
