Civil Engineering - University of Plymouth

Do you want to tackle global problems like water or energy supply security and defence against flooding in a changing, highly populated world? You will understand how to apply core engineering principles to real world problem using simulations, models or experiments. You will be supported and inspired by research-active academic staff - many of whom have Chartered Engineer status and industry experience. You will gain a BEng highly sought by employers, making you the future of civil engineering. * Start your professional career from day one with a course accredited by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE), Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE) and The Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation. Our BEng (Hons) is accredited by our professional institutions on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng) and partly meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng). You'll qualify for membership of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) and Institution of Structural Engineers. * Immerse yourself in the real world of civil engineering through site visits, field courses and visiting lectures from leading Chartered Civil Engineers working on major projects. * Benefit from our new £19 million Marine Building, which offers you opportunities to learn water engineering and coastal engineering. We offer major options in structural engineering and water management to equip you to specialise in design and flood risk management. * Learn from our teaching staff of professionally qualified experts with relevant experience from the civil engineering industry and researchers with national and international reputations. * Get ahead in your career by spending an optional placement year working as a paid student engineer, a great opportunity to further your knowledge and make important industry contacts. * Learn a host of design skills from problem solving to sustainable development, as well as developing the critical thinking that plays a key role in the work of a civil engineer, including interpreting and analysing data. * Develop your professional skills including communication, self-management, team working and leadership, all vital in pursuing a rewarding career. * Increase your employability by taking an HSE-recognised diving qualification as part of your course, allowing you to work professionally in underwater technology. * Study core subjects include engineering surveying, geotechnics, hydraulics, management, materials, and structural analysis. * Join our extensive network of Chartered Civil Engineer graduates from Plymouth University and now work at all levels in the industry both nationally and internationally.
