Our course is broadly based and covers the Core Civil Engineering disciplines of Highways, Structures, Geotechnics, Water and Environmental. You will study the fundamental engineering science that underlies these disciplines and apply this knowledge to the Design and Construction of a wide variety of Civil Engineering Projects from Motorways to Buildings, Bridges, Water & Wastewater Schemes and Environmental Projects. You will learn about the importance of developing Sustainable Solutions for Civil Engineering Projects. You will develop the analytical skills and structured approach to problem solving that underlies Civil Engineering.
We strongly believe in Learning by Doing. Our course is built around a combination of Lectures and Practical work. You will develop your understanding of engineering science by applying it to practical problems. Practical work will include individual and team-based design projects and material testing in our modern laboratories. Our small class sizes provide you with an excellent supportive learning environment with easy access to consult with your lecturers. An Industrial Placement in the Summer between the third and fourth year is an integral part of the course and allows you to develop your skills in industry by working on real civil engineering projects.
