Civil Engineers are responsible for virtually all the great structures around us. It’s the work that they do that makes or lives easier – from roads and airports, to access to clean water and electricity.

This course will develop your understanding of the process of civil engineering technical design and management. You'll be introduced to key skills in structures, fluids, geology, soil mechanics, surveying and materials. Through the mix of lectures, real-life projects and site visits, you’ll develop the knowledge and skills that employers are looking for.

Teaching and Assessment

Teaching and learning in 2020-21 academic year will be provided via a blended delivery model, offering class-based lectures and tutorials, including laboratory, workshop and field-based practical activities wherever possible, and  online delivery to replace large group teaching like lectures which cannot be accommodated physically at present due to due to social-distancing rules.

You will be taught using demonstrations, laboratory sessions, lectures and tutorials.

A variety of assessment methods will be used. Some modules are assessed through coursework only, others by a combination taken from portfolios of work, case studies, oral and graphic presentations, team work projects, computer testing and examinations, so providing a flexible and effective means of assessing your progress.

As a partner student you will be granted access to the University’s online learning environment ‘University of Derby Online (UDo)’. From within UDo you will be able to access the University’s Library (including an extensive range of eBooks, eJournals, audio and video resources), course resources related to your programme and your grades.
