Course summary

The HND Civil Engineering course is intended as a vocational qualification within the Civil Engineering industry. It more than satisfies the educational base for becoming a Professional Engineering Technician. In addition, it provides a progression route onto the BSc (Hons) Civil & Environmental Engineering degree course which is professionally accredited as meeting the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng). The civil engineering industry is responsible for the design, management and construction of major infrastructure projects such as dams, reservoirs, transport projects, bridges, major buildings, flood defences, water supply, sewage treatment, harbours and sea defences. The aim of this course is to develop students with a technical understanding of the civil engineering industry including the application of proven techniques and theories for the solution of real life problems. Thus the course will • address industry’s demand for technicians who can integrate the principles and applications of civil engineering, and apply them to infrastructure and construction projects, in a technical context • enable students to advance their existing careers in civil engineering to a higher level which requires the exercise of judgement, and the ability to make decisions that reflect a responsible and ethical outlook • furnish students with a technical understanding of the fundamentals of geotechnics leading to some simplified analysis and design, the principles of structural design, including material properties, an understanding of fluid flows, a practical understanding of current surveying techniques, as well as transportation and sustainability issues. Provide a broadly based education in civil engineering, allowing scope for continued development into a wide range of disciplines within the civil engineering and construction related areas.
