Civil Engineering

This programme enables graduates and engineers to develop their technical knowledge and skills to meet the future demands of the construction industry. It will give you the opportunity to develop your professional, analytical and management skills to an advanced level. It provides a broad, subject-specific curriculum with the chance to specialise through a variety of course options and an individual project. Topics for the project cover a variety of industrial applications and are inspired by the consultancy and research activities of academic staff. Facilities and staff The programme is run by a team of research-active staff and is supported by world-class experimental facilities, including the largest concrete slab testing rig in Europe, geotechnical and hydraulics laboratories, and one of the largest environmental chambers in the country. This environment will provide you with unique support and enable you to undertake course-related activities that involve analytical and experimental tasks as well as computer simulations. Professional development The Department of Engineering Science, part of the Faculty of Engineering and Science, has built strong links with local and national employers. We enjoy the support of an industrial board, a forum that enables us to constantly revise our programmes to reflect the changing needs of industry. Our students leave equipped with the skills and practical experience that employers value. We have invested in the very latest facilities and industry-standard equipment, so you will graduate with hands-on experience of the technology being used in the workplace. Many of our programmes are accredited or recognised by relevant professional bodies, which can widen your career options and increase your opportunities for career progression. Our success has been widely acknowledged. Outcomes The aims of the programme are to: Enhance specialist knowledge in selected areas of civil engineering which build upon studies at the undergraduate level Develop a broader insight into aspects of civil engineering design Develop critical insight into broader management issues relating to civil engineering in particular and construction in general.
