Our Civil Engineering (Hons) Including Placement Year course at University of Bath is for students who want to ask difficult questions about the future of civil engineering. You’ll push the boundaries of design and construction to generate new ideas for our infrastructure and cities. Your knowledge will enable you to integrate energy, sustainability and environmental design.
In your first two years, you will learn the foundations of materials, geotechnics, structures and digital design. You will develop the fundamental engineering design skills and attributes, including ingenuity and communication skills, that are essential for exploring aspects of infrastructure and the built environment in later years.
You’ll learn from leading academics with expertise in civil, structural and architectural engineering. Their collaborations in industry and research feed into undergraduate teaching and contribute to your learning experience. Also, visiting practice-based tutors bring their wealth of design experience to support projects and enrich teaching.
You’ll develop your abilities in purpose-built design studios that foster an atmosphere of creativity and collaboration. You’ll also have access to a range of laboratories to support you throughout your civil engineering studies. These include structures, hydraulics, soils and materials research laboratories. We also house specific teaching and computer laboratories, and a 3D fabrication workshop. We’ll teach you to use specialist model-making equipment such as wood and metal working machinery, 3D printers, CNC routers and laser cutters. This will enable you to realise and test your engineering solutions.
