Course summary

Study civil engineering and apply its technologies to some of society’s most complex problems. On this Chelmsford-based degree you’ll be hands-on, going on site and tackling practical exercises in our specialist workshops. Get your hard hat on for a week-long construction project under real site conditions and gain further experience on a placement year. Accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators acting on behalf of the engineering institutions for the Engineering Council UK, this course leads to Chartered Engineer status.Designing and building structures like bridges, roads, airports and flood defences demands a high degree of technical skill. Our course will teach you to approach civil engineering projects competently, responsibly, ethically and safely.Civil engineering changes our world – from buildings and transport to the environment and civil protection. It covers everything from creative concepts to physical construction and maintenance, designing and building structures like bridges, roads, airports and flood defences demands a high degree of technical skill.On our newly designed course your learning will be based around the civil engineering project and hands-on learning, giving you the chance to immediately apply the theory you learn in class to address the challenges of the project. You will learn how to carry out site investigations, select the best materials for the job, analyse and design structures and engineering systems, plan the construction process and assess and mitigate the environmental impact of the project using our specialist workshops and labs. You will learn how to carry out land surveys and use state of the art CAD systems and specialist software to design and analyse complex systems.You’ll learn a range of transferable skills, including how to manage projects and contracts; statistics; management techniques; and principles of IT, preparing you for industry work, advising clients, working closely with other engineers and stake holders. You’ll become a creative problem solver and a confident communicator, able to work well independently and in a team.What is the different between the BEng and the BSc?Our BSc (Hons) course focuses on the contractor and production so if it is the construction site that excites you, then this is course for you. If you are interested in the design and analysis of infrastructure then the BEng(Hons) will give you the theoretical framework to work in consultancy.So what is an MEng?The 3 year BEng and BSc degrees are both accredited, however to reach CEng (Chartered Status) you will need to go on and do a Masters degree to apply for this status. An MEng is a 4 year course that incorporates a BEng degree with a postgraduate year, giving you the ability to apply for CEng status at the end of your course.This degree is accredited as:fully satisfying the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng)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.See the Joint Board of Moderators' website for more information and details of further learning programmes for CEng.
