Content

The BEng Civil Engineering course covers broad-based civil engineering subjects to equip you with knowledge and skills to plan, design and implement major civil engineering projects.

There is a 36-week period of paid industrial training incorporated into this degree, which is obtained competitively. If you are successful in completing this period of employment, you will graduate with a 'Sandwich' degree which demonstrates to employers that you are ready to make an immediate contribution to their teams. This thin sandwich placement is undertaken out-with term time/on a part-time basis meaning it does not affect the duration of the degree. The practical nature of the civil engineering course also means that you will visit construction sites and spend time at the National Construction College as part of the degree.
