Course summary

Do you want to tackle major global issues like defence against coastal flooding during climate change? Do you want to design the offshore structures necessary to maintain security of energy supply? You will understand how these structures are protected from erosion and will apply engineering and design principles to create experimental systems such as marine renewable energy devices, that you will test in the coastal and ocean basins and wave flumes located in our £19 million Marine Building.You will be supported and inspired by research-active academic staff, many of whom hold Chartered Engineer status. You will graduate as a civil engineer, enriched with the specialist coastal skills and experience highly sought by employers across the sector, ready to be the future of coastal safety and security on a changing planet.* Distinguish yourself professionally with an accredited degree. Our BEng (Hons) is accredited by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE), Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE) and The Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation on behalf of the Engineering Council, for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng) and partly meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng). You'll qualify for membership of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) and Institution of Structural Engineers.* Benefit from our new £19 million Marine Building, where you’ll find facilities for teaching water and coastal engineering. You’ll be taught modules in coastal engineering and water management, preparing you to specialise in design or flood risk management and port engineering.* Lay strong foundations for a successful career using our extensive industry links to secure a paid, one-year work placement. Gain the confidence, real-world know-how and vital industry experience employers are looking for.* Learn a host of design skills from problem solving to sustainable development, as well as enhancing the critical thinking that plays a key role in the work of a civil engineer.* Work with the latest industry-standard software, in our high specification laboratories. You’ll develop a strong understanding of fundamental principles, while honing your skills at the same time.* Learn from professionally qualified experts with relevant experience from the civil engineering industry, and researchers with national and international reputations. 100 per cent of our students say our staff are good at explaining things [source: unistats].* Increase your employability by taking an Health and Safety Executive (HSE), recognised diving qualification as part of your course, allowing you to work professionally in underwater technology.* Progress onto MEng (Hons) Civil and Coastal Engineering at the end of the second year, subject to achieving the required level of academic performance on the BEng (Hons).* Develop your professional skills including communication, self-management, team working and leadership so you’re ready to hit the ground running in your future career.
