Civil Engineering with Sandwich Placement

The BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering course is intended as your first step towards becoming a Chartered Civil Engineer and a practitioner in the global community. Chartered Engineers are variously engaged in technical and commercial leadership and possess effective interpersonal skills as well as digital literacy Civil Engineers are responsible for the design, management and construction of major infrastructure projects such as dams, reservoirs, transport projects, bridges, major buildings, water supply, sewage, harbours and sea defences. The aim of the course is to develop graduates who are characterised by their ability to develop appropriate solutions to engineering challenges by using new or existing technologies, through innovation, creativity and change. Thus the course will : • provide you with a broadly based education in civil engineering, allowing scope for continued development into a wide range of disciplines within the civil engineering and construction related areas • address industry’s demand for graduates who can understand the principles of civil engineering, and apply them to infrastructure and construction projects, whilst simultaneously demonstrating an awareness of the ethical, environmental and business aspects of projects • Enable you to pursue professional careers in civil engineering at a level which requires the exercise of sound judgement, initiative, and the ability to make informed decisions in complex circumstances that reflect a responsible, ethical and socially aware outlook • furnish you with a detailed understanding of the principles of civil engineering, enabling the rational selection of the most appropriate materials and systems to solve civil engineering problems • require you to participate in a group design project where the project team members will each have a specific area of civil engineering to focus on, and will all be responsible for combining the various aspects to produce a compatible solution
