Civil engineers find creative ways to solve-real world problems, developing the physical infrastructure for society to exist: from bridges, to houses, and from roads to hospitals and train stations. Our course is accredited, under license from the Engineering Council, by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM), which represents the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE), the Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE) and the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT). It's also accredited by the Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors, recognising the quality and relevance of the course content. The course is also accredited as fully saitsfying the educational base for Incorporated Engineer (IEng) status. This course has been designed to provide a practical and broad civil engineering education. Through live projects, a residential surveying field trip (included in course fees), site visits and a work placement year, you'll gain a solid foundation of knowledge and hands-on skills. You'll experience hands-on learning in our modern facilities and workshops, offering industry-standard equipment and support from our team of expert technicians. The course offers you the chance to develop your understanding of design, sustainability and health and safety essential for the industry. You'll benefit from excellent employability prospects; 100% of our BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering sandwich students are in a professional or managerial job, just six months after graduating, earning an average salary of £24,900 (DLHE, 2015-2016). Due to a skills shortage and a boom in the construction industry, civil engineering graduates are heavily sought after. You'll gain vital skills and experience in the workplace by undertaking a one-year placement, with the majority of our students receiving a salary.
