As our built environment becomes increasingly complicated, ambitious construction projects can only be completed by teams of people with different skills, working together. The civil engineer is important in this process.

In your first two years of this course, you will develop basic scientific, mathematic and practical skills, and learn how to use these skills to solve engineering problems, first in our Engineering Foundation Year and then by developing specific civil engineering attributes. In your third year, you will learn to apply these skills to structural analysis and design, materials, geotechnical engineering, construction engineering, hydraulics and professional practice. In your final year, you will consolidate these engineering skills to the level of an engineering graduate.

Speciality options include the environment, transport, public health or advanced structural design. You will also need to complete at least 12 weeks of engineering work experience during the summer breaks in order to graduate from civil and construction engineering.
