Course Content

This course is designed to prepare you for the ever-changing needs of the sector. We make sure that contemporary matters, including sustainability, are covered and you will be taught by industry experts at the forefront of the latest research. This access to expertise gives you valuable knowledge of developments relevant to environmental engineers and civil engineers more broadly.

You will study all the main subject areas, concentrating on analysis and materials behaviour, and focusing increasingly on design and management as the course progresses. Throughout, there is an emphasis on your personal development within a professional environment.

You will begin by developing core knowledge in the areas of structural mechanics, mathematics and health and safety legislation. This knowledge will support your learning as you go on to study particular civil and environmental engineering disciplines in your second year.

We emphasise practical work, so you will apply the principles you are learning to real-world situations through laboratory classes, project work, surveying fieldwork, design projects and site visits.

This course is accredited by the:

  • Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE)
  • Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE)
  • Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation (CIHT)
  • Institution of Structural Engineers
  • Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES).

Once you have successfully completed your course, you will fulfil the education base for an Engineering Technician (EngTech), a globally recognised qualification. You will also partly fulfil the academic requirements for the ICE grade Member and for the ICES grade Technical Member.
