Content

Five core threads run through the curriculum: structural engineering; geotechnical engineering; water engineering; environmental engineering; transport & construction.

Year 1: You'll study foundations of civil engineering, including mathematics, engineering mechanics, civil engineering design, computing, professional skills and geology.

Year 2: The second year of study focuses on structural engineering, soil mechanics, hydraulics & hydrology, chemistry and materials, and surveying.

Years 3 and 4: In the third and fourth years you'll study structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering, transport planning & engineering, construction management and undertake a project dissertation. There is an increased emphasis on design and project work in the final two years of study. Year 3 students can study within the EU as part of the Erasmus scheme or further afield on international exchange.

Year 5: Our flexible curriculum allows you to extend your knowledge in areas of civil engineering. You will also have the chance to select classes from across the Faculty of Engineering, including topics on renewable engineering. A wide range of topics is also available in business and management, environment and sustainability.
