This programme will enable you to design, construct and organise civil engineering projects. There are two 18-week periods of paid industrial training, which are obtained competitively. You will also visit construction sites and spend time at the National Construction College as part of the programme. Industry experts will share their expertise through guest lectures. You may gain employment with a major contracting or consulting engineering company. UWS graduates work with companies including Network Rail, Amey, Balfour Beatty, CH2M, and the Royal Air Force in roles such as Graduate Civil Engineer or Graduate Structural Engineer. At time of print the BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering programme is accredited as fully satisfying the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng) and has been accredited by the Institution of Civil Engineers; the Institution of Structural Engineers; the Institute of Highway Engineers; and the Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation. See www.jbm.org.uk for further information. Conditions apply, for full details see our website. From September 2017 year 1 entry we are intending to offer a BEng (Hons) CEng Civil Engineering programme, which will partially satisfy the educational base for a Chartered Engineer, and we will be seeking accreditation for this programme from the JBM. Course content This programme covers broad-based civil engineering subjects to equip you with knowledge and skills to plan, design and implement civil engineering projects. Guest speakers from industry also form part of the programme to further deepen your understanding of the subject. Representatives from Arup regularly speak to students about the role of structural engineers and students recently attended a talk from Graham Construction about the opportunities open to graduates with them. Year 1 Studies include mathematics, structural mechanics and design, science, communication, drawing and computing skills and an introduction to the engineering industry. Year 2 Studies include, sustainable construction the properties and uses of civil engineering materials, design of structural elements, mathematics, applied geology, hydraulics, surveying and construction studies. Year 3 Structural engineering, ground and water engineering, construction technology and project management are covered. Team building skills are developed via a group design project. Industrial training Honours students can spend an 18-week period of paid employment in industry between Year 3 and Year 4. Year 4 (Honours) Studies include structural engineering and design, ground & highway engineering, construction and management, renewable energy and materials. An individual project allows you to investigate a subject area of your choice. Career prospects Graduate opportunities are available with excellent starting salaries. Major construction firms actively seek university graduates and you may gain employment with a major contracting or consulting engineering company. UWS graduates work with companies including Network Rail, Amey, Balfour Beatty, CH2M, and the Royal Air Force in roles such as Graduate Civil Engineer or Graduate Structural Engineer. Placement/Work-based learning There are two 18-week periods of paid industrial training to develop your professional skills. Students are responsible for applying for civil engineering jobs and these are obtained competitively so they cannot be guaranteed, however we will assist you with this. You will visit construction sites and spend time at the National Construction College studying concrete construction, drainage, steel fixing and scaffolding.
