About the Program
As our built environment becomes increasingly complicated, ambitious construction projects can only be completed by teams of people with different skills, working together. The civil engineer is central to this process.
In this course you will develop scientific, mathematical, and practical skills to solve engineering problems – first in the Engineering Foundation Year (EFY) and then by developing specific civil engineering attributes. In your third year you will apply these skills in structural analysis and design, geotechnical engineering, transportation engineering, hydraulics, construction, and professional practice.
In your final year, you will integrate your design, construction, and management skills in large civil engineering projects and undertake a major research project. Project topics include structural integrity, construction materials science or pavement design, water quality, water systems, and construction management applications.
