Program Description

Civil engineers are vital to the design of our built environment. From bridges, tunnels and transport systems, to buildings, flood defences and water management, their performance is fundamental to modern society.

This degree gives you a strong grounding in the design and analysis of civil engineering structures. The integrated Engineering Foundation Year programme can lead to any full engineering degree. It is not a qualification in its own right, but the first year of a four-year BEng degree.

You will develop complex problem-solving skills, gain the ability to sketch and model engineering solutions and become fully comfortable preparing technical reports. As you progress, your developing analytical abilities will combine with hands-on experience of state-of-the-art equipment, establishing skills which are vital to securing employment in the wider civil engineering industry.

Note:
Fees for full time Undergraduate EU/International students will increase by 3% for each subsequent year of study.
