Civil Engineering - Coventry University

It takes a mix of technical, analytical, managerial and practical skills to succeed as a civil engineer, which this BSc course can nurture. Civil engineering is all about creating, improving and protecting the environment in which we live. This course supports a career in the design or construction of civil and structural engineering projects. Your studies are underpinned by three core course themes, which are carefully balanced across all years of the course, centred on specific technical knowledge, construction practice and skills development through group project work. We aim to provide an insight into the full breadth of design and construction disciplines that collaborate in the multidisciplinary construction industry. Full-time students also have the potential to benefit from the practical experience brought to the course by part-time students already working in industry. Throughout the three years of study, we will cover the principles and practice of civil engineering within a global context, including structural analysis and design, materials, geotechnics, highways and surveying, construction and project management, hydraulics and water engineering. The emphasis of this course is the application of theory to engineering practice and management, giving you the opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills required to go straight into the industry. Key Course Benefits: * Opportunity to transfer onto the BEng or MEng in Civil Engineering subject to academic performance. * A course that is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM)* as fully satisfying the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng). * A teaching team who are active in research and have industrial experience, who bring their expertise into their teaching to ensure it is relevant to the needs of industry. * Significant opportunities to apply for industrial placements at companies that have previously included: Balfour Beatty Construction, Mott Macdonald, Severn Trent Water, Interserve Project Services, Atkins and Morgan Sindall. This course is accredited and recognised by the following bodies: * Institution of Civil Engineers * Institution of Structural Engineers * Institute of Highway Engineers * The Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation
