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.

Career Opportunities

The need to stimulate demand within the economy using the construction industry appears to be one thing on which both political parties agree. Recently the Business Secretary Dr Vince Cable described construction as “a very big chunk of the economy” and went on to state “if we are going to get out of this period of economic crisis, the construction industry is a key driver “ Dr Cable identified housing and infrastructure as two key areas that needed to be addressed. Similarly the shadow Chancellor has identified the need to increase the amount of housing provision.
