2. Course description

Civil engineers deal with the design and construction of roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges and water supply or sewage systems. This course enables you to progress and qualify as a chartered civil or structural engineer, and provides a strong base of high-quality technical abilities together with good management and personal skills. Year 1 develops skills in engineering science, mathematics, computing, engineering drawing (including AutoCAD), fluid mechanics, soil mechanics, structures, materials and sustainable construction and design. Emphasis on practical work includes practical surveying, model-making and using computer-aided design packages. Year 2 comprises more focused studies in specific civil engineering subjects such as hydraulics, geotechnics, structures, construction materials and engineering surveying, with a thorough grounding in project and business management. There are two residential field courses - engineering surveying and geotechnical engineering. Year 3 further develops the core civil engineering disciplines: structures, hydraulics and geotechnics, including a residential field trip devoted to coastal engineering. Studies include the development, design and construction of sustainable infrastructure, focusing on water engineering, transport, highway and the energy sector. There is an emphasis on graduate employment opportunities. You will carry out an individual project and with fellow students work on a major group design exercise. As with all BEng(Hons) courses, further learning, at university or on a graduate training scheme, is necessary to qualify as a chartered engineer.
