3 good reasons to study Civil Engineering at Salford: course accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (Institution of Structural Engineers, Institution of Civil Engineers, and Institution of Highways & Transportation) as fully satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng); practical Residential Field Course at National Construction College; leads directly to Chartered Engineer Status. Civil engineering is all about creating, improving and protecting the environment in which we live. It provides the facilities for day-to-day life, and for transport and industry to go about its work. Infrastructure is the thing that supports our daily life - roads and harbours, railways and airports, hospitals, sports stadiums and schools, access to drinking water and shelter from the weather. Infrastructure adds to our quality of life, and because it works, we take it for granted. Only when parts of it fail, or are taken away, do we realise its value. Salford's Civil Engineering teaching team won the 2012 IStructE Teaching Excellence Award and constantly strive to improve and develop teaching practice.
Year one modules may include: Engineering Mathematics E1, Civil Engineering Materials and Geology, Structures E1, Civil Engineering Construction, Civil Engineering Surveying, Civil Engineering Communication. Year two modules may include: Engineering Mathematics E2, Soil Mechanics E2, Structures E2, Design and Construction Management, Highway Standards and Applications, Fluid Mechanics E2. Year three modules may include: Project Part 1, Geotechnical Engineering E3, Structures E3, Finite Element Analysis with Seismic Engineering, Case Studies in Environmental Engineering, Water Resources. Year four modules may include: Project Part 2, Introduction to Structural Design with Computer Applications, Water and Wastewater Systems, Transport Infrastructure Design and Analysis.
The University of Salford is hugely diverse and multicultural with a focus on practical experience and skills. We have fantastic connections with ITV and the BBC at the newly opened MediaCityUK complex, making for a highly engaging and creative student experience. The Students' Union has amazing opportunities in activities and volunteering and offers tonnes of support.
