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
