Subject

Civil engineering

This five-year masters level accredited degree offers you the opportunity to work in the one of the top civil engineering departments in the country and undertake a paid year in industry. You will gain a solid grounding in core subjects, including structures, geotechnics, materials, fluids, surveying and construction management, with opportunities to specialise in further key areas such as hydraulic design and risk assessment in later years.

Modules

In your first year, you will be introduced to the core disciplines and the context of civil engineering such as structural mechanics and strength; geotechnics and hydraulics within a group project based environment. In year two, your core subjects will be developed in greater depth and a major design-based project will help you see the application of your studies. At the end of year two or three you will undertake a paid year in industry supported by our dedicated industrial placements team and underpinned by frequent visits by your tutor. In your final year, core subjects continue alongside a range of elective modules and you’ll complete a group design project and an individual investigative project on a topic related to your particular interests.

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.

This information is from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

You can use this to get an idea of who you might share a lecture with and how they progressed in this subject, here. It's also worth comparing typical A-level subjects and grades students achieved with the current course entry requirements; similarities or differences here could indicate how flexible (or not) a university might be.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

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?
