This course offers a broad-based knowledge in civil engineering covering geotechnical, structural and water engineering, placing an equal emphasis on analysis and design. Effective civil engineers need a sound understanding of these three areas and their inherent interconnections. The core modules give you a grounding in engineering analysis and design. In the second semester, you can follow your interests and choose from a list of specialist modules.
Core modules: Linear Systems and Structural Analysis; Structural Design; Geotechnical Design; Constitutive Modelling of Geotechnical Materials; Hydrogeology and Research Skills. Optional modules vary but can include: Advanced Hydraulics; Engineering Hydrology; Innovations in Structural Concrete; Advanced Concrete Design; Blast and Impact Effects on Structures; Design of Earthquake Resistant Structures; Sustainable Concrete Technology; Flood Risk Management; SuDS and Green Infrastructure; Computational Methods in Water Engineering; Design of Water Distribution and Sewer Networks; Coastal Engineering.
Assessment is by formal examinations, coursework assignments and a dissertation with oral examination. For environment courses, students also take class and practical tests.
