Subject

Civil engineering

Civil engineering specialist activity encompasses design and construction of infrastructure such as buildings, bridges, pipelines, dams, railways, and roads. As construction, projects are becoming ever more complex there is a real need for civil engineers and construction managers to develop their project management skills particularly focusing upon the project planning and management process. Our civil engineering and construction management course is founded through strong industry links, and is situated in a region which boasts a wide range of cutting-edge engineering and technological-advanced organisations. You will be equipped with the principles and concepts of engineering, underpinned by a sound knowledge and understanding of scientific principles. You will be taught by experienced Industrial professionals, academics, and benefit from state-of-the-art laboratories and digital teaching and learning facilities within the UCLan Engineering Innovation Centre.

The university will be applying for accreditation from the Chartered Institute of Building and the Joint Board of Moderators, which comprises the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation and the Institute of Highway Engineers.

Modules

Year 1: Engineering Analysis A, Civil Engineering Design and Technology, Civil Engineering Hydraulics and Materials, Civil Engineering Structures and Geotechnics.

Year 2: Management and Project Planning, Structural Analysis and Element Design, Soil Mechanics, Materials (one semester only), Civil Engineering Design and CAD, Construction Law.

Year 3: Project Analysis and Appraisal, Risk and Value Management, Engineering Dissertation, Project Management & BIM and Engineering Design Project. Additional modules; Structural Engineering or Geotechnical Engineering.

Optional Industrial Placement year following completion of second year.

Assessment methods

The assessments for this course are designed for maximum validity in terms of learning outcomes and learning processes, and are specific to the type of subject or module area involved by completion of assignments and problem based examinations in the engineering and related modules throughout the programme. At level 4 and 5, the students’ knowledge and analysis of subject matter will be assessed through graded problem solving techniques. A variety of methods of assessment are utilised appropriate to the learning outcomes of the individual modules. The range of assessments experienced by the students will include formal exams, assignments, continuous assessment, portfolios and design. Student presentations, where they occur, will be used to assess the development of their presentation skills which, in some cases, will be assessed by peer review.

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.

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?
