You will also develop specialised skills, evaluate new concepts, and apply your diagnostic and creative skills.You will study in exceptional facilities which include purpose-built soil mechanics and geology laboratories, excellent materials and structural testing facilities, up-to-date computing suites and award-winning environmental health laboratories.This course has been accredited by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE), the Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE) and the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT).We’re always looking to make it easier to access the education we offer, so we have launched the option of taking a degree with a foundation year.A foundation year is an extra year of study at the start of your course that leads in to a full degree programme.
