Civil and Environmental Engineering Degrees
Civil engineering involves the planning, design, development and construction of solutions that enable the built and natural environment to be used in a sustainable way. This covers many different fields, including structures (such as bridges, tunnels), transport (such as railways, motorways), hydraulics (such as river control, coastal defences) and identifying sustainable energy sources for the future.
Our Civil Engineering degrees combine theory with practical work to allow our students to put their knowledge to the test. As well as practical laboratory sessions and project work our students gain first-hand experience of construction through our residential Constructionarium field trip.
We encourage our students to seek opportunities to enhance their employability and since 2003 we have been running the SUCCESS scholarship scheme partnering students with sponsoring companies to gain valuable work experience and additional financial support.
All our Civil Engineering degrees are accredited by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE). Our MEng programmes meet all the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Our BEng programmes meet many of the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer although graduates must undertake postgraduate study to achieve Chartered status.
We also provide teaching in software products widely used by industry such as AutoCAD, Revit Architecture, LUSAS. Students are offered the opportunity attain Autodesk® certification status in AutoCAD, a significant additional achievement.
