2. Course description

This course has been designed and developed with the assistance of a range of local employers to ensure it meets the needs of the region. This course will equip you with the knowledge to become a Civil Engineer or Asset Manager (as identified within the Government's Nuclear Skills Strategy Document). The need for Civil Engineers is an urgent requirement particularly within the new infrastructure projects across the country which include new home building projects, nuclear power new build, high speed rail and numerous renewable energy projects. In addition there is also a requirement to asset manage existing legacy buildings across the sector. The programme has been designed to provide a unique learning experience and delivery will occur within the National College for Nuclear Northern Hub building. The course delivery model will make significant use of experiential learning and delivery methods which can be defined as 'learning from doing'. Considerable use will be made of the project/technology centre supported by a virtual reality suite which will provide the students with a real time immersed experience of civil engineering. TOPIC AREAS INCLUDE: • Structural Analysis 3D Modelling • Civil Building Project Management • Building Pathology for Civil Asset Management • Civil Engineering Design • Professional Development • Industrial Based Dissertation This course is awarded by the University of Cumbria.
