During your Foundation Entry year, you will study alongside peers from related courses, whilst you gain a broad introduction to the principles and concepts of engineering, underpinned by a sound knowledge and understanding of scientific principles. You’ll be taught by research-informed specialist staff in state-of-the-art laboratories and will benefit from the introduction of a new £30 million Engineering Innovation Centre on campus, which is due to open early 2018. As a civil engineer you will become a part of a dynamic, fast growing industry with the potential to develop your career across the globe. You will have alternative routes to gain employment in a range of engineering disciplines, within either the broad area of civil engineering or specialist disciplines such as a structural engineer, transportation engineer, environmental engineer, or engineering hydrologist. As well as the option to further your specialisation with a postgraduate course, you can also diversify into the academic world of research and development, within universities or work for dedicated established research organisations within the built environment.
