Course Summary

This one-year honours degree add-on programme offers students the opportunity to enhance their level of technical knowledge, understanding and skill and will develop the graduate’s skill in core civil engineering areas as well as more specialist areas such as new software and information systems and renewable energy technologies.

Civil Engineers are involved in a vast range of projects from simple housing construction to major infrastructure developments with global impact. Civil Engineering is focused on achieving the most efficient and effective design possible from the resources available by applying their knowledge of nature, materials, forces and technology to the solution of problems and the creation of reality from the concepts of others. The scope of engineering projects and the range of technologies is changing rapidly with the evolution of renewable energy industries, waste management processes and infrastructure changes.

This course offers students the opportunity to enhance their level of technical knowledge, understanding and skill and will develop the graduate’s skill in core civil engineering areas as well as more specialist areas such as new software and information systems and renewable energy technologies.

Student will cover the following modules:

YEAR 1 - Semester 1:
(Mandatory)

  • Geotechnical Engineering
  • Renewable Energy for Civil Engineers (year-long)
  • Individual Research Project (year-long)
  • Advanced Mathematics
  • Group Design Project
  • Structural Design 2014

YEAR 1 - Semester 2:
(Mandatory)

  • Transportation Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Infrastructure Planning and Management
  • Structural Analysis
  • Renewable Energy for Civil Engineers (year-long)
  • Individual Research Project (year-long)

Graduates may work in structural, water, public health and geotechnical branches of the civil engineering industry. As well as developing knowledge in structural, geotechnical, and environmental engineering, it will improve management and employability skills.

Compared to the more mathematical BEng Civil Engineering, this course places more emphasis on civil engineering design and practice. The extensive final year project, supervised by design lecturers with industry experience, prepares students for work in a design office.

M.Sc in Civil Engineering; M. Eng in Civil Engineering; M.Sc in Renewable Energy Systems (with bridging studies); Professional Engineering qualifications
