Civil engineers are concerned with the science and art of large-scale infrastructure projects including roads, railways, bridges, tunnels, airports, docks, offshore structures, dams, water supply, drainage and irrigation schemes, buildings and other major works. The course provides a solid foundation in computing, mathematical, drawing and communication skills and a broadly-based education in the geotechnical, structural, environmental and management aspects of civil engineering. If you choose the alternative MEng course, the additional academic year enables further study of the technical and managerial aspects of civil and structural engineering and provides the fastest route to gain Chartered Engineer status. Professional Accreditation/Recognition This course is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators which includes the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation, the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institute of Highway Engineers and the Institution of Highways and Transportation, and satisfies the educational base to becoming an Incorporated Engineer (IEng) and partially meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng). This course is also recognised by ENAEE (European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education).
