About the Degree

From the world’s tallest buildings to the most spectacular bridges to airports, highways, hospitals and rail networks, civil engineers provide the critical infrastructure that makes our lives easier. Our programme provides our students with the principles of structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, hydraulics and hydrology, environmental engineering, materials, surveying and construction. With our degree, the students discover the latest techniques and developments, such as low- carbon materials and sustainability.  

Our Civil Engineering programme, equips our students with a wide range of knowledge and skills to take on their careers in a variety of professions, including planning, designing, management, and construction development. This degree provides our students with strong ties to the professional construction industry through sites training, internships, and partnerships.
