Course content

Our course has a UK and global appeal for career development and future plans are currently being developed to offer students the requisite skills to become CEng qualified through the Joint Board of Moderators.

It satisfies the technical and managerial expectations required by civil engineering employers as our course will develop the skills needed to interface with functional users, other than engineers, giving students a more holistic view of the processes behind successfully delivering a civil engineering project.
