FdSc in Civil Engineering and Construction Management (Full Time)

University of East London

Foundation Degree , Civil Engineering

Course Description

This is a practical, industry-led course, which is suitable for anyone already working in the construction industry, as well as for new students.

You’ll have the opportunity to follow one of two routes, depending on what direction you want your career to take - civil engineering or construction management.

Once you’ve completed the course successfully, you’ll be able to progress onto the final year of one of our honours degrees to obtain a BSc degree if you wish. These degrees are in either Civil Engineering or Construction Management.

If you’re already in employment, you’ll spend four days a week in industry, while full-time students will undertake a compulsory work placement of up to four days a week in their final year. Whatever path you take, you’ll gain the knowledge and skills to become a first-class construction manager or civil engineer.

Although we cannot guarantee a placement we will support you in providing opportunities to secure one.  If you do not secure a placement you will still be allowed to progress directly on to the BSc (Hons) degree course.

Assessment Methods

We’ll assess you with a mixture of coursework and exams. Coursework includes essays, research reports, group and seminar presentations and a final-year project. Most of the assessment in your first year is by coursework and we’ll give you as much feedback as possible so that you can develop and improve your written assessment submissions.

The assessment methods are varied, including coursework, group and individual presentations, time-controlled assessments and exams. The balance between exams and coursework is approximately 30 per cent exams, 10 per cent presentations and 60 per cent coursework.  The work placement is assessed by a combination of the production of a work based portfolio and employer assessment.
