You’ll learn the fundamentals of civil engineering and develop skills in structural analysis, transport systems, ground engineering, water resource management and transport planning.
Putting these skills into practice on a work placement you’ll gain industry insights from site visits, a week-long survey camp, an overseas field trip and input from engineering companies. You may also apply to study abroad as part of a tailored civil engineering exchange scheme or the Erasmus+ programme.
These courses are accredited by the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institute of Highway Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation and the Institution of Structural Engineers.
