Subject

Civil engineering

The BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering course is intended as your first step towards becoming a Chartered Civil Engineer and a practitioner in the global community. Chartered Engineers are variously engaged in technical and commercial leadership and possess effective interpersonal skills as well as digital literacy Civil Engineers are responsible for the design, management and construction of major infrastructure projects such as dams, reservoirs, transport projects, bridges, major buildings, water supply, sewage, harbours and sea defences. The aim of the course is to develop graduates who are characterised by their ability to develop appropriate solutions to engineering challenges by using new or existing technologies, through innovation, creativity and change. Thus the course will : • provide you with a broadly based education in civil engineering, allowing scope for continued development into a wide range of disciplines within the civil engineering and construction related areas • address industry’s demand for graduates who can understand the principles of civil engineering, and apply them to infrastructure and construction projects, whilst simultaneously demonstrating an awareness of the ethical, environmental and business aspects of projects • Enable you to pursue professional careers in civil engineering at a level which requires the exercise of sound judgement, initiative, and the ability to make informed decisions in complex circumstances that reflect a responsible, ethical and socially aware outlook • furnish you with a detailed understanding of the principles of civil engineering, enabling the rational selection of the most appropriate materials and systems to solve civil engineering problems • require you to participate in a group design project where the project team members will each have a specific area of civil engineering to focus on, and will all be responsible for combining the various aspects to produce a compatible solution

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.

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?
