Course summary

Course Details

Start on the path to becoming a chartered engineer and have an impact on the design, construction and maintenance of the world around you. Mathematics will underpin everything you do in engineering, so it will play a key role in your learning. We will also build your understanding of structures, hydraulics, geotechnical engineering, management, health, safety and welfare, surveying, materials science and sustainable development.

We will nurture your ability to manage, work in team environments and play a leading role in this industry. You will develop a flair for communication, problem solving and project management, knowing what's needed to investigate and evaluate different engineering situations.

You will also look at using materials in new ways, the principles of experimental design, and the engineering behind roads, bridges and other major structures. You will understand how civil engineering works and know how to use this knowledge to solve structural problems.

BEng (Hons) Accredited CEng (Partial)
This degree is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) comprising the Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Institute of Highway Engineers, and the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation on behalf of the Engineering Council as:

1. fully satisfying the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng).

2. partially satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng).

A programme of accredited further learning will be required to complete the educational base for CEng.

Course Benefits

Our modern, well-equipped laboratories give you the chance to get involved with industry standard tools and testing. We'll show you how to examine the strength of materials for structures, and understand the latest geotechnical and structural analysis software packages.

We can offer you great links with industry, thanks largely to our teaching team - which includes five Chartered Engineers - who have great experience across different areas of engineering. Guest lectures, talks on engineering projects and trips to construction sites will provide you with great opportunities to network with professional engineers and see how what you're learning can be applied to real situations.

We also offer this course in sandwich mode allowing you the chance to take a 12 month break from your studies to spend a year gaining valuable engineering experience in industry.

Job Prospects

You could move on to a masters degree before gaining hands-on experience and pursuing chartered engineer status. You might decide to do a masters course part-time while gaining experience working in the field, or you may prefer to do a full year in industry and then return to study. Once chartered status is achieved, you will be able to lead design teams working on innovative engineering projects anywhere in the world.
