Course Summary

Sustainability is a keyword for modern civil engineers and this BEng course in Civil Engineering with Sustainability provides an in-depth understanding of sustainable infrastructure development.Drawing on an impressive body of pure and applied research engineers and scientists, we will introduce you to mainstream civil engineering knowledge, ranging from geotechnical site assessment to assessing and designing structures and environmental engineering.You will explore the role of the engineer in current and future projects, following the sustainable ‘cradle to cradle’ approach called for by major institutions such as the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Institution of Civil Engineers.Professional engineers working with major clients, consultancies and contractors are involved in bringing real world experience to the programme.With the growing challenges to our infrastructure from rising populations, progressive urbanisation and economic development, climate change and the persistent risk of extreme events, the next few decades promise to be amongst the most challenging ever for the civil engineering community.As a result, civil engineers need to draw deeply on their knowledge, skills and ability to innovate, to provide essential and sustainable infrastructure, including roads, bridges, tunnels, flood protection, and water supply and treatment systems.The programme puts a focus on sustainable infrastructure, fully equipping graduates to play leading professional roles in industry and the wider local, national and global community.It has been designed very much as a ‘hands-on’ learning experience. You will learn fundamental theory, and then have the opportunity to test and apply much of that theory through design in the laboratory, using advanced software, and during field work. You have the opportunity to pursue a valuable work placement and a major individual project in your final year.
