Course Summary

Overview

Civil engineering has impact on almost every aspect of the environment we live in, from building structures to transportation and sanitation. It has applications all over the world, with key skills transferable into other industries. This is a broad based civil engineering course covering the areas of structures, geotechnics, water engineering, water transportation, computer-aided design, highway engineering and railway engineering. You'll be required to complete an individual project into a specific area of the programme. This will provide you with the opportunity to pursue independent study and undertake work of an investigative nature, contributing an experimental, analytical, computer-based or fieldwork input.
