Course summary

Placing an emphasis on engineering practice and its role within construction, Coventry University has a long-established reputation for the teaching of civil engineering and excellent links with employers, many of whom provide direct input into course development as members of our Civil Engineering Advisory Board.This course aims to develop the combination of technical, practical and managerial skills necessary to analyse, design and manage solutions for innovative and complex engineering problems as a basis for future leadership in the civil engineering profession. You will be taught by staff with academic and professional experience in the civil engineering and construction industries, having worked for companies such as Carillion, Hyder and Laing O’Rourke as principal, senior and management engineers. We also have a strong portfolio of industry-related research, ranging from applied technology, such instrumentation and measuring to pure innovative research, which ensures you stay abreast of new technologies and emerging issues.Teaching is highly practical; we draw on real-life case studies, such as Highways England’s TollBar Island underpass project in Coventry. You will also have the opportunity to use industry-standard software, such as MIDAS, Plaxis and ANSYS, which are widely used by design and consulting engineers.Our extensive industry links with companies including Hyder, Arup, MottMacDonald and Geotechnics Ltd provide significant opportunities to apply for professional placements (subject to application and availability).
