Our three-year BEng Civil Engineering course provides you with the basis for a professional career as a civil engineer, giving you a solid grounding in the fundamentals of civil engineering design and application. Students can also take the Industrial Placement Year, providing the opportunity for a year-long placement with an engineering-based organisation. Civil engineers design, construct and maintain elements of the physical and naturally-built environment. Civil engineering is all around you; buildings, transport infrastructure, water supply and treatment, and coastal defence. This three year degree will give you the necessary skills and knowledge in subjects such as structural mechanics, design, geotechnics, hydraulics and construction management to allow you to work in the civil engineering industry.
The first two years will provide you with core knowledge in mechanics, structures, materials, thermofluids and construction management. The third year introduces highway and traffic engineering and will further develop your knowledge of structures and geotechnics.
Design is integral to all our engineering courses, you will develop key design skills that you will use throughout the course. You will have the chance to carry out individual and group design projects to create real solutions.
You can also take the Industrial Placement Year, which is an additional year-long module that allows you to apply for a placement with an engineering-based organisation. The successful placement will be recognised on your Degree Certificate.
