The course is designed and structured to provide you with the opportunity to study the scientific, technical and managerial aspects of civil engineering to an appropriate level. It contains all the elements required for employment in any of the strands of Civil Engineering : Structures, Highways or Water and Wastewater. The skills of self-motivation, original thought, problem solving and decision making, which are so essential to the professional engineer, are encouraged and developed by a programme of project work and design which is undertaken either individually or in small groups. Progress to the MEng (Hons) Civil Engineering is permitted on achieving marks of 60% average or above in the equivalent of the second year of the full-time BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering Course.
Year 1: Core modules: Materials science; mathematics; design and graphical communications; engineering mechanics; surveying; construction studies; information technology and communications; elective. Year 2: Core modules: Structures; structural design; geotechnics; water resources engineering; engineer and environment; mathematics. Year 3: Core modules: Industrial placement working in a design office or in government department specialising in public works leading to Diploma in Industrial Studies.
