This Civil Engineering degree will give you the appropriate practical and academic training for a career in civil engineering, including structural design, geotechnical design, project management, highway and transport engineering, and sustainable design and development
You’ll gain knowledge of fundamental and more advanced engineering principles, as well as key industry-relevant IT skills. Using industry-standard software, you’ll learn how to apply these skills to engineering problems through design and project work. There are practical field courses in the UK, and you’ll have the opportunity to complete a work placement as part of your studies.
Our accreditation from professional bodies ensures that what you learn relates directly to current industry standards. This Civil Engineering course also forms a full educational base for professional development to become an Incorporated Engineer (IEng).
Our Civil Engineering courses are designed to ensure you are highly employable and a valuable addition to the industry. The areas you will study include all the subjects necessary to meet the expectations of employers, preparing you for a career in this challenging and rewarding field.
Project modules are based on ‚live’ schemes, supported by guest lectures from professional engineers. Where appropriate, field courses are included to consolidate the knowledge gained in class and help you apply it in real-life situations.

An open-door policy ensures that support and advice from academic staff is always available during your studies.
The BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering degree offers a combination of theory and practice, so there is a balance of lectures, tutorials and practical sessions. Many modules require coursework only, while others are a mixture of coursework and exams.
Project modules are based on ‘live’ schemes, supported by guest lectures from professional engineers and, where appropriate, field courses are included to consolidate the knowledge gained in class and help you apply it in real-life situations.
Part-time Civil Engineering students can follow an embedded professional qualification route, which gives them the opportunity to achieve a professional qualification while studying and working.
The Civil Engineering degree is assessed by assignments, coursework, class tests and presentations. Presentations are included as elements of assessments in some modules, in order that key communication and presentation skills can be developed.
