BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering (International)


BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering (International)


Civil engineers are a part of our everyday lives. The entire infrastructure of our environment has been influenced by them, from bridges and buildings to utilities and transport; there is no escaping our reliance on their knowledge and skills.

You will gain a wide range of knowledge and skills and also a concern for the environment and its resources and for public health and safety.

With an excellent reputation and strong links with industry this course will put you in good stead to become a successful professional civil engineer.

Each year of this course each contains six modules. Alongside five of these modules you will complete an integrated design exercise which blends the learning and skills from each module to the application of a client brief. One module in the final year is dedicated to your individual project.

You can opt to take an industrial placement year, which you arrange with our support, in between your second and third year of your course. This has a number of benefits: you will improve your employment prospects after graduation, you get to see the engineering theory you have learned in action, they are often paid positions, and many of our industrial placement students ultimately improve their degree classification over their second year results to receive top class degrees. Successful completion of an industrial placement year will add ‘with Professional Experience’ to your degree title
