Description

Advertisement

Our Civil Engineering programme aims to provide graduate engineers with advanced capabilities and in-depth knowledge in a range of specialised aspects of civil engineering. It is also designed to update the technical skills of practising engineers engaged in the planning, design, construction and operation of civil engineering works and to contribute to a personal professional development programme.

This programme is particularly useful in providing the necessary further learning for engineers working in the construction industry who hold related first degrees such as engineering geology or construction management.

Five study streams can be accessed by students on the Civil Engineering programme Bridge Engineering, Construction Management, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering and Water Engineering.

The programme is organised and delivered by University staff, as well as practising engineers from consultancies and local authorities.
