On the Civil and Infrastructure Engineering (Hons) course at Kingston University, you will gain a good mix of theoretical, practical, academic, management and industrial-based skills.
Year 1 develops your skills in engineering science, mathematics, computing, engineering drawing (including AutoCAD), fluid mechanics, soil mechanics, structures, materials and sustainable construction and design. There is an emphasis on practical work, including surveying, model-making and computer-aided design packages.
Year 2 comprises practical-focused studies covering specific civil engineering subjects such as hydraulics, geotechnics, structures, construction materials and site surveying. You will also gain a thorough grounding in project and business management. There are two residential field courses, in engineering surveying and geotechnical engineering.
Year 3 broadens your understanding of core civil engineering disciplines (structures, hydraulics and geotechnics) with building and environmental engineering, and includes a field trip devoted to coastal engineering. You will also study the development, design and construction of sustainable infrastructure, focusing on water engineering, transport, highway and the energy sector. You will carry out an individual project and take part in a major group design exercise with fellow students.
