Course summary

If you have an interest in how the world around us is designed, created and connected, this Civil Engineering Practices course is perfect for you. Supported by CECA North East and Robertson Civil Engineering, you will focus on construction and civil engineering techniques, maths and structures, technical drawing and design and strategy management. You will be taught by civil engineers who are still active in industry and will broaden your understanding whilst developing your management and strategic thinking skills. You will have access to a soils lab, electronics lab, surveying equipment, total stations and a CAD suite to help develop your practical skills. Previous students have benefited from trips to Walter Thompson Construction where they were able to experience the civil engineering industry first-hand, viewing plans, touring facilities and meeting civil engineering professionals. You will have the opportunity to apply for the Construction Skills Certification Scheme card from the Construction Industry Training Board. On successful completion you can progress onto an Honours Degree (Top-Up) degree with Newcastle College University Centre. Alternatively, you may also choose to enter the civil engineering industry working as a civil engineer, technician or manager.
