Civil Engineering BEng(Hons) - UK

UCAS CODE – G600

4 YEARS WITH PLACEMENT

£14,600/ANNUM

Intro

Our certified course will build the abilities you need to become a highly qualified civil engineer with the ability to handle infrastructure design, construction and maintenance. 

Fieldwork, site visits and projects carried out with our colleagues in the industry bring learning to life. You’ll collaborate on industry-based scenarios, ranging from concept briefs to real-world case studies, with students in interdisciplinary project teams.

You will learn from research and consultant workers, and visiting lecturers will also share their experience with you to give you a sense of what the working environment is like.

You will benefit professionally from the option of a salaried placement year and the ability to learn Building Knowledge Modeling (BIM). In your third year, there is also the chance to study overseas.

Course Structure

The first year discusses the  basic components of civil engineering.  From year two  modules become more personalized.  You will have the right to select your own  modules of choice and study project in your final year.  You may choose to specialize after year 1 and switch to our  courses in Civil with Environmental Engineering or Civil Engineering with Construction Management. 

Via seminars, tutorials, community practicals, weeks of  design and laboratory work, you can understand. You can also take part in field courses ranging from surveying  to geological studies and have the option of a placement year. Ensuring that what you learn with us is important, up-to-date, and what employers  are looking for is our focus, so courses are constantly checked and improved. When you have applied to us through Student  View, you will be informed about any new developments.

You will be learning the basic elements of civil engineering in your first year.

You will be introduced to the study of simple structures in this module. You would be able to assess the help reactions and internal forces in structural members through the application of the equilibrium equations. The research will be carried out through a systematic theoretical and graphical approach, as well as through a physical understanding of systemic behaviour. As the basis of the restricted state principles, the measurement of displacements and stresses will also be implemented.

This module covers the basic science of building materials such as wood, steel, concrete, masonry, polymers, bituminous materials, etc. You will gain an understanding of widely used building materials and determine the efficiency of various materials and recognise a number of forms of failure. You will have the opportunity to test, through laboratory sessions, some of the key properties of basic building materials.

This is an introductory module that discusses soil mechanics and geological engineering concepts. The syllabus includes the identification of soils and common forms of rock; the definition of engineering and classification of soils and rocks; the physical characteristics of soils and rocks; soil stresses; surface processes of the earth; and an introduction to geological maps. You will get hands-on experience with lab lessons, tutorials and a field day.

The mathematics and statistics needed to study civil engineering will be introduced to you in this module. It will cover vectors, linear algebra, matrix analysis, a collection of linear equation solutions, functions of one or more variables, differentiation and integration. For the estimation of uncertainty in civil and environmental engineering problems, statistical tools are given.

This module will introduce you to a range of issues related to the civil engineering profession’s content and function. You will gain an understanding of health and safety, environmental and sustainability concerns relevant to civil engineering projects through independent and self-managed research, critical review of published studies and the writing of technical reports. It is related to the Engineering for People Design Challenge UK and aims to train you for an effective professional life by fostering collaborative and teamwork best practices.

You will draw on the knowledge and skills you 
have learned in your first year during your second year. 
Study on the creation of 
simplified structure will involve group project work.
  • Construction Methods and Technology
  • Structural Analysis
  • Concrete Technology and Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures
  • Geotechnical Engineering 1
  • Hydraulics
  • Computational Mechanics.

A placement year provides a great opportunity to gain work experience, create a network of experts, increase trust, improve established skills and discover new ones. The experience greatly boosts your CV as well. The chance to study abroad is also available.

You will embark on an individual project and select modules that give you the chance to explore areas of interest.

Works include a proposal for a multi-disciplinary community design, as well as the design and development of a basic small-scale structure tested in the laboratory.

  • Individual Project 
  • Design of Steel Structures
  • Design of Structures
  • Dynamics of Structures
  • Geotechnical Engineering 2
  • Applied Hydraulics
  • Building Information Modelling (BIM)
  • Building Performance and Design Configuration
  • Project Planning and Analysis
  • Sustainable Construction
  • Project Management for Construction
  • Environmental Impact Assessment 
  • Water, Sanitation and Health
  • Masonry Structures

Depending on timetabling and personnel availability, option modules are representative and can change.

Entry requirements

A-levels or BTEC
Entry requirements are in the range of A-level BBB–BCC (120–104 UCAS Tariff points), or BTEC Extended Diploma DDM–DMM. You will be considered if your predicted grades fall above or within this range.

A-level maths, or its equivalent, is normally a requirement for entry. BTEC should include at least an M in further maths.
International Baccalaureate
26 points, with three subjects at Higher level. Higher level subjects to include maths at grade 5.
Access to HE Diploma
Pass with 60 credits overall in engineering or science diploma. At least 45 credits at level 3, with 24 credits at merit or above with overall distinction profile. Must achieve maths level 3 units at distinction.
Foundation degree/HND
International foundation may be considered. Applicants with an HND may be considered for year 2 entry.
English language requirements
IELTS 6.0 overall with a minimum of 5.5 in each element.

What’s Included

During your research, you will have to pay extra costs. The cost of optional activities is not included in your tuition fee and in addition to your fees, you will need to cover this cost. A description of the expenses you can expect to pay and what is included in your fees are listed here when studying a course at the School of Environment and Technology.

  • For all compulsory residential field trips, travel and hotel expenses are included, but you may need to have your own food and drink.
  • Where residential field trips are optional, a contribution towards travel and accommodation will be required. This will vary depending on where and how long the field trip is but roughly £ 1,500 should be budgeted.
  • An independent mapping project is a compulsory part of the Geology BSc(Hons) involving independent fieldwork carried out between years 2 and 3 in the summer. The cost of this fieldwork is not included in the fee, and you will have to satisfy yourself with this extra cost.
  • Some students need outdoor specialist equipment and/or personal protective equipment (PPE) and are required to pay up to £ 100.
  • If you want to take an optional paid placement, your own travel, lodging, food and drink would be required to cover you.
  • You would have access to computers and the software you need, however many students prefer to purchase their own hardware, software and accessories. The sum spent will depend on your individual decisions, but in order to pass any of our courses, this expenditure is not necessary.
  • In most cases, applications for coursework are electronic, but students may choose to print notes that would entail an extra expense.
