Course Summary

**Civil Engineering at Swansea University is ranked 8th in the UK for Graduate Prospects (Complete University Guide 2019)** Civil engineers play a vital role in society. They are responsible for the design of most of the built environment around us. This includes bridges, tunnels, transport systems, buildings, flood defences and water management.This degree will provide you with a solid background in the design and analysis of civil engineering structures. You will gain engineering skills of critical importance when working in industry, including the ability to break a complex engineering problem down into its component parts, to sketch/model engineering solutions and to be able to understand and prepare technical reports. You will learn about current design practices through the use of the latest engineering standards, such as Eurocodes.We will nurture your computer modelling skills by encouraging you to develop your own software with the final purpose of analysing realistic civil engineering problems. We will also help build your awareness of the advantages and disadvantages of different design approaches when facing a civil engineering problem, including aspects such as environmental constraints, economy or health and safety.Our state-of-the-art facilities include: - Structures Teaching- Geomechanics- Experiments with Concrete Laboratory- Fluid Mechanics- Bridge TestingOur Civil Engineering degrees are accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators which is composed of the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation, and the Institute of Highway Engineers.Our research and development centre is acknowledged to be one of the finest in the world. It has been part of the design teams for the NASA space shuttle, the land-speed record-breaking THRUST and its successor BLOODHOUND SSC, which aims to reach 1,000mph.**95% of our graduates are in Graduate Level Employment within 6 months (DHLE 16/17 Graduates) – the average salary for our Civil Engineering graduates is £25,000.****We guarantee that you will be made a conditional offer for a course at Swansea University. Subject requirements will apply. Please come along to our next Open Day or get in touch for further information.**
