Course summary

The overall aim of this programme is to provide a full and satisfying vocational experience appropriate to Honours degree level, which will develop student's ability to understand concepts, apply academic rigour and appraise critically the issues involved in the study of civil engineering in the built environment.

Course Overview

Given the sharp decline the industry has suffered in the recession it is somewhat surprising that recruitment has held up so well, this may indicate that many young people consider the industry will continue to offer rewarding employment within the UK and overseas. However, the construction industry has the advantage that it is one of the few UK industries which cannot be shipped abroad, and there is much work needed to both the UK infrastructure and housing stock.

Assessment

Assessments used within these Programmes are normally formative or summative. In the former assessment is designed to ensure students become aware of their strengths and weaknesses. Typically, such assessment will take the form of practical exercises where a more hands-on approach shows student’s ability on a range of activities. Traditional formal time-constrained assessment is by means of tests and examinations, normally of two-hour duration.

Examinations are a traditional method of verifying that the work produced is the students’ own work. To help authenticate student coursework, some modules require that the student and lecturer negotiate the topic for assessment on an individual basis, allowing the lecturer to monitor progress. Some modules where the assessment is research-based require students to verbally/visually present the research results to the lecturer and peers, followed by a question and answer session.

Career Opportunities

This programme will meet industry demands and in doing so provide a sound intellectually demanding vocational learning experience linked to industry and professional body a requirement that satisfies the needs of both students and employers. Furthermore, the programme team has developed the aims of the programme to enhance the development of technical competence and training at a level, which is capable of meeting industry’s current requirements for middle management.

The Civil Engineering and Environmental Management pathway is formulated to provide the graduate with a range of skills that will enable them to enter positions within both client and contracting organisations. The diverse nature of the pathway focusing on both environmental matters and civil engineering matters offers students a range of possible careers opportunities within these fields.
