Course Summary

This exciting Flood and Coastal Engineering foundation degree has been developed in partnership with the Environment Agency to address the growing need for capable flood engineers in the UK, and has funded places available.The course is led by Brunel and delivered in partnership with HR Wallingford, a world-renowned civil engineering and environmental hydraulics organisation.You’ll be introduced to engineering, the environment and flood risk, and your learning will be focused on the flooding hazard across the UK. This flood and coastal engineering course will provide you with the skills to effectively deal with the issues of flooding and coastal management, allowing you to become a flood engineer of the future.During the course, you’ll have access to Brunel’s testing facilities that include hydraulic benches and flumes. In addition, you’ll benefit from the hydraulics testing facility at HR Wallingford, the largest in the UK. Their world-class test facilities include: wave basins; tsunami generator; and remote controlled river survey boats.To complement your professional development, there are arranged visits to Environment Agency sites where you'll enjoy a series of seminars from invited guest speakers. There’s also the opportunity to go to conferences and exhibitions where you’ll network with key water industry professionals. Throughout the first two terms of both years, you’ll study the taught modules and then you’ll go on placement for six months at either the Environment Agency or a local authority. During your first year placement rotation, there’s also the residential summer school at HR Wallingford. Here you’ll participate in challenging team building tasks such as the design, build and testing of your own flood product. As well as this, you’ll go on additional civil engineering site visits and look at flood protection projects.During your two placements, you’ll be mentored by an industry professional and will gain real-life experience on what it’s like to be an engineer in the water industry. The experience obtained on placement and in the first year summer school plays a major role in developing your professional skills and readiness for work.Our flood and coastal engineering course is accredited by the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) and is pending accreditation by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), and is studied full-time over two years.On successful completion of the course, you’ll have the full educational base to apply for Engineering Technician (EngTech) status. You’ll also have the technical basis to complete the BSc top-up in Flood and Coastal Engineering.
