Course summary

Master the essential engineering skills to creatively and innovatively address the challenges faced by the civil engineer of the 21st century. From day one you will be working on real built environment projects using maths and science to tackle engineering problems. You will become well equipped to shape our future built environment whether it involves design, construction and maintenance of bridges, buildings and transportation systems, planning flood defences or developing infrastructure for sustainable energy generation.Civil engineers shape the world around us by working on major projects to develop sustainable and resilient communities and infrastructure. Confronted with challenges such as climate change and an increasing and changing population their role in adapting current structures and systems is crucial to sustain society. We understand how the needs of the industry change and have revised our courses to ensure that you are trained in the challenges faced by the civil engineer in the 21st century.With our newly designed courses your learning will be based around the civil engineering project, giving you the chance to immediately apply the theory you learn in class to address the challenges of the project. Using our specialist workshops and labs 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. You’ll design, analyse, build and test your projects, developing your technical skills and knowledge through hands-on practise, preparing you to hit the ground running as a graduate civil engineer.What is the different between the BSc and the BEng?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.Accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators acting on behalf of ICE, IStructE, CIHT and IHE for the Engineering Council UK, this degree is accredited as fully satisfying the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng). With further learning (a masters) both courses are accredited for Chartered (CEng) status. See www.jbm.org.uk for further information.
