This programmeenables graduates and engineers to develop their technical knowledge and skillsto meet the future demands of the construction industry. It will give you the opportunityto develop your professional, analytical and management skills to an advancedlevel. It provides a broad, subject-specific curriculum with the chance tospecialise through a variety of course options and an individual project.Topics for the project cover a variety of industrial applications and areinspired by the consultancy and research activities of academic staff. Theprogramme is run by a team of research-active staff and is supported byworld-class experimental facilities, including the largest concrete slabtesting rig in Europe, geotechnical and hydraulics laboratories, and one of thelargest environmental chambers in the country. This environment will provideyou with unique support and enable you to undertake course-related activities thatinvolve analytical and experimental tasks as well as computer simulations. Ourstaff work hard to support learning and are committed to student satisfaction.In return, we have received very positive feedback: No.1 in the UK for student satisfaction with the quality of teaching for civil engineering from theComplete University Guide 2016.
The Department ofEngineering Science, part of the Faculty of Engineering & Science, hasbuilt strong links with local and national employers. We enjoy the support ofan industrial board, a forum which enables us to constantly revise ourprogrammes to reflect the changing needs of industry. Our students leaveequipped with the skills and practical experience that employers value. We haveinvested in the very latest facilities and industry-standard equipment, so youwill graduate with hands-on experience of the technology being used in theworkplace. Many of our programmes are accredited or recognised by relevantprofessional bodies, which can widen your career options and increase youropportunities for career progression. Our success has been widely acknowledged.
The aims of the programme are:
- To enhance specialist knowledge in selected areas of civil engineering which build upon studies at the undergraduate level
- To develop a broader insight into aspects of civil engineering design
- To develop critical insight into broader management issues relating to civil engineering in particular and construction in general.
Discover our wide range of programmes from HNCs to Master's degrees. Learn about our fantastic facilities, supportive lecturers and links with industry.
