Course Information

From the world’s tallest buildings and most spectacular bridges, to airports, highways, hospitals, rail networks and flood defences, civil engineers provide the critical infrastructure that makes our world work. You will learn to apply the principles of structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, hydraulics and hydrology, environmental engineering, materials, surveying and construction.

You will also discover the latest techniques and developments, such as low- carbon materials and sustainability. For this degree we have a strategic partnership with the world-renowned BRE to give you access to specialist facilities, projects and lectures. To become professionally recognised as a Chartered Engineer, graduates from the programme will be required to complete approved CEng Further Learning.

  • We have a unique partnership with BRE so students are exposed to their industry expertise
  • Our modules encourage hands-on, problem-based learning with strong engagement from industrial partners
  • This is a brand new programme, developed in consultation with professional institutions and the industry, to reflect the skills and competencies the sector is looking from graduates of this ERA
