Summary... header image

Civil engineering is all about the assessment, planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of the different types of infrastructural works that society needs, from roads and rail systems to bridges, harbours, airports, energy and utility services, and water supply schemes.

During the first three years of the course there are a broad range of modules in topics such as environmental engineering (water resources, waste management and coastal protection), structural engineering (analysis, design & computer detailing) and infrastructural development (transport and roads).

A twelve-week work placement is also a central feature of the programme in Year 3.
