Subject

Civil engineering

Summary:
Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with designing, constructing and maintaining the physical and naturally built environment. Put simply, civil engineers build bridges, tunnels, canals, dams and flood protection measures, tall buildings and other large structures.

Course details:
The next few decades promise to be among the most challenging ever for the civil engineering community. Progressive urbanisation, increasing populations, ongoing economic development, climate change and the persistent risk of extreme events already present many threats to infrastructure. This programme produces industry-ready graduates. It incorporates key aspects of civil engineering such as structures, geotechnics, fluid mechanics, materials and construction management. We have accessible, professional lecturers and have combined an employability-focused curriculum with manageable group sizes to give you one of the best student experiences available.

After the course:
Typical roles include construction project management, building/civil engineering for contractors or consultants, architectural practices, local authorities or government agencies. Our recent graduates have been employed by Arup, Birse Civils, Jacobs, WSP Group, Interserve, Atkins Global and Aker Solutions. 100% of MEng (Hons) Civil Engineering graduates were in work or further study within six months from completing their course (DLHE 2014/15)

Assessment methods

We teach in a variety of ways including lectures, tutorials, case-based learning, workshops, e-learning and seminars. Technical visits, field courses and attendance at professional meetings enhance your skills. We cover the JBM core civil engineering subjects throughout modules each year: structures, geotechnics, materials, management and hydraulics. The modules in one year total 120 credits, with each credit equating to 10 hours of learning and assessment. During one year of study you can expect to have 1,200 hours of learning and assessment, including self-study time. Site visits are a key part of the course, allowing you to see the scale and complexity of construction and to develop your skills. A residential field course in the first year is focused around a civil engineering project and uses many of the skills honed earlier in the year. Laboratory sessions will develop practical skills and reinforce the knowledge taught. Throughout the course you use the labs for heavy structures, geotechnics, material properties and hydraulics. Discipline specific modules employ a range of laboratories to allow students to perform simulation and numerical analysis of complex models, particularly modules covering geotechnical, structural study areas. Assessments vary from laboratory reports and calculations, to using 3D visualisation tools, collaborative project work, and making presentations to practising engineers. We use end exams in a number of modules in each year. This course allows you to spend a year in work experience. By taking a placement year, you gain experience favoured by recruiters and develop your skillset. Transferable skills include communication, negotiation and leadership. During the course, you meet prospective employers and extend your network. An increasing number of employers view a placement as a year-long interview, so placements are increasingly becoming an essential part of an organisation's pre-selection strategy in their recruitment process.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Do you want to be in demand? This might be the degree for you! We are officially short of civil engineers, and so around two thirds of civil engineering graduates start jobs specifically as civil engineers, and starting salaries are well over £25k last year. Demand for civil engineers and related jobs - we're short of all of them - means that good graduates have plenty of options directly related to their degree when they graduate. This is a subject where work experience can be very helpful in getting a job and many students do work for engineering companies while they take their degrees.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
