Why study this course?
  • This degree is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) and recognised as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired a partial CEng accredited undergraduate first degree. See the JBM website for further information.
  • Our flexible study options support part-time learners, who wish to balance employment with further study. Significant academic support and guidance is in place to help students returning to study after extended periods in employment, and students who are pursuing high-level study for the first time.
  • Benefit from our industry-standard facilities in our Maudslay building, right in the heart of Nottingham’s city centre. You’ll have hands-on access to our workshops and laboratories, supported by our team of expert technicians, enabling you to test, learn and research for yourself. Some modules include laboratory investigations and computer applications as part of the delivery method.
  • Benefit from our team of expert academic staff who have established links to industry and significant experience of working in practice. Most staff teaching on the course are members of one or more professional institutions relating to civil engineering, and participate in industrial activities, consultancy and research, ensuring our course content allies with current industry practice.
  • Hear from visiting industry and academic experts, some of whom are NTU alumni, who will be teaching parts of the modules, providing a ‘real life’ perspective on the topics you will be studying. This input helps bind together both the theory and the practice of civil engineering and management. Some modules also include a field trip, designed to help develop your understanding of theory in practice.
  • Benefit from our peer and lecturer support network, with social networking, peer-to-peer support sessions and a Course Committee encouraged each year. We aim to develop a strong course community with each intake of students, developing a sense of belonging and collective peer-to-peer support to help you achieve your potential and stay on-track.
