As our built environment becomes increasingly complicated, ambitious construction projects can only be completed by teams of people with different skills. The civil engineer is important in this process.
In your first year you will complete the Engineering Foundation Year (EFY). The EFY builds a solid base of the fundamental concepts common to all areas of engineering. The EFY was developed in partnership with industry to create a curriculum that is reflective of engineering practice.
In your first two years, you will develop basic scientific, mathematical and practical skills, and learn how to use them to solve engineering problems. Third year students will learn to apply these skills in structural analysis and design, materials, geotechnical engineering, construction engineering, hydraulics and professional practice.
In your final year, you will consolidate these engineering skills to the level of an engineering graduate. Speciality options include the environment, transport, public health or advanced structural design.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
