Course Summary

This degree is professionally accredited under licence from the Engineering Council and the Joint Board of Moderators. Our multidisciplinary first year encourages you to explore other engineering disciplines, such as materials or mechanics; broadening your subject knowledge as you progress with civil engineering and preparing you for real industry teamwork situations. Experience of working in your chosen field is a real advantage when entering the graduate job market. It’s also a great way to try out different jobs and to make contacts within companies you’re interested in working for. A full year’s work placement, undertaken as part of your course. Your degree takes an extra year to complete, and the words ‘with Year in Industry’ appear in your degree title for future employers to see. The placement typically takes place in your third year and usually lasts at least nine months.

We will help you to prepare for your work placement from early in your studies. A special module 'Employability and Placement Preparation for Engineers' takes place at the start of your second year. This isn’t marked and is an opportunity to start thinking about your placement well in advance. You will also be invited to attend workshops offering guidance and support such as ‘Making the most of your placement’ and ‘How to use your placement as an individual project’.

Civil engineering is essentially about creating and managing the infrastructure and environment in which we live. As a civil engineer you will play a key role in the future prospects and health of society. Civil engineering interfaces with electrical, mechanical, chemical and managerial processes. People skills are vitally important to civil engineers, who work alongside a broad section of society in order to bring plans to fruition. Our programmes combine the science (mathematics, dynamics and materials) with personal and management skills developed through application and direct study. Exeter has an excellent reputation with graduate recruiters and a strong employment record. Our graduates excel in specialist engineering fields and across a broad range of other sectors. We offer a very wide range of opportunities for you to develop the skills employers are looking for, including industrial placements and study abroad.
