Overview

With the ever-increasing global population and effects of global warming, there is a significant and foreseeable demand on the construction industry to build more sustainably efficient structures. Structural Engineers are being tasked with designing more complex structures whilst minimising the use of construction materials.
Structural Engineers are involved with shaping the future of our cities and responsible for designing new and exciting buildings using ever-evolving technology and materials.

The Institution of Structural Engineers is the world’s largest membership organisation dedicated to the art and science of structural engineering.

This professionally accredited course enables you to achieve a degree level qualification in three years of successful full-time study. The course partially satisfies the educational base for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status and fully satisfies the educational base for Incorporated Engineer (IEng) status. We aim to ensure that graduates are ready to take a pivotal role in the civil or structural engineering profession.

Coventry University aims to offer a very practical civil engineering courses with a significant amount of embedded laboratory work.

Career opportunities

Civil and Structural engineering remain to be the world’s great professions, responsible for some of the world’s most incredible structural achievements – the 5,000-mile long Great Wall of China, the Burj Khalifa (the worlds tallest building at 828 m), the iconic Golden Gate Suspension Bridge and the Hoover Dam, (constructed using 2.5 million cubic metres of concrete).

In recent years, the demand for civil and structural engineers had continued to rise, particularly in countries such as Australia, Singapore, New Zealand and China. Construction projects relate to building to accommodate a growing global population, improvement of infrastructure and sustainable energy production.

As a graduate from this civil and structural engineering programme, you should be well-suited to working in a range of civil and structural engineering consultancies, contractors or client organisations. You will also have a sound base ultimately become a professionally qualified civil or structural engineer.

As well as the specific technical knowledge gained on the course, you will have the opportunity to gain a range of additional skills valued by employers – high numerical competency, literacy and digital literacy, strong leadership, organisation and team working skills. These skills are transferrable to a range of other professions, including management, banking, accountancy, software development and so on.

If you wish to take an industrial placement year, you will also receive support from our award-winning Faculty careers service, EEC Futures, which won the ‘Best Placement Service in the UK’ award at the National Undergraduate Employability Awards in 2015 and 2016.

Graduates from this course have gone on to work for engineering consultancies, contractors and local authorities, such as Arup, Atkins, Buro Happold, Mott MacDonald, Severn Trent and Warwickshire County Council.
