Working in both lab and field, you’ll develop skills in surveying, computer aided design and the properties of engineering materials. We’ll begin your professional development through site visits, group-based design activity and visiting industry speakers.

In year 2, explore the core disciplines of civil engineering, from structural analysis and design to hydraulic engineering through lectures, practical activities, site visits and a field course. We’ll introduce you to some specialist areas of the industry, including coastal engineering and water management – with the opportunity to take an option module to develop skills in sampling, survey, underwater photography and inspection techniques (for those who have completed the HSE SCUBA diving qualification).

By taking the opportunity to spend a year in paid professional employment as a student civil engineer, you’ll gain real world experience, industry contacts and the possibility of summer work, sponsorship or a graduate job offer. Our Employability Service will support you in finding a placement and we offer an extensive network of employers across all sectors.

In year 3, you’ll deepen your understanding of the core technical subjects in civil engineering with a particular emphasis on coastal engineering design - culminating in an industry-focused group design project. You’ll spend much of the year completing a research-based individual project – that focuses on laboratory experiments, computer-aided modelling, or field work linked to our staff’s research and professional interests.

In your final year, you'll extend your existing skills in geotechnical engineering, hydraulics and computation and information technology. Broaden your knowledge by studying subjects such as modelling marine processes, structural engineering and project management. In preparation for your future career, you’ll focus on the commercial aspects of the civil engineering business through a group-based design project collaborating with other engineering disciplines.
