Our BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering degree apprenticeship is an opportunity to combine study and work. As well as providing a high quality BSc (Hons) degree qualification it enables students to achieve professional Incorporated Engineer (IEng) status through the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) and pursue a fulfilling career as a qualified Civil Engineer. The course is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM).

Civil Engineers provide technical and management input to develop design solutions for complex civil engineering problems. They work as part of a team of engineers and other construction professionals through all lifecycle stages of development, design, construction, commissioning, operation, maintenance, and decommissioning of civil engineering infrastructure.
A Civil Engineer might work in public and private sector organisations including local authorities, central government departments and agencies, engineering consultancy practices, contracting firms and research and development organisations.
The course has been developed using the government approved Civil Engineering trailblazer standards. This means that course incorporates all the knowledge, skills and behaviours as defined by employers representative of the sector.

I strongly recommend a degree apprenticeship as an excellent way to build and kick start your career. The experience and knowledge that I have ascertained is simply invaluable
Our work based course ensures that it meets the need of the industry and is adaptable to a range of employers and roles.
Assessment for this course will be in two parts. The first element is the On Programme element, which includes the academic content of the modules and the Initial Professional Development (IPD). The second element is the End Point Assessment (EPA). These are explained below.
As part of the apprenticeship, students are required to have an employer formal training plan. Through the ICE’s Training Agreements Online trainees can be registered and record their experiences using IPD Online. The Supervising Civil Engineer (SCE) can access the trainee’s records and sign off achievement levels for each attribute. It is estimated that this will take three years and will start in year two of the degree apprenticeship.
Once the gateway of threshold of the BSc (Hons) and IPD is completed, apprentices have to undertake the EPA. The End Point Assessment, also known as Professional Review for Incorporated Engineer, requires apprentices to demonstrate that they have achieved ICE’s defined competencies to which the apprenticeship standards have been mapped. It comprises:
According to guidelines, the apprentice will have up to an additional 12 months (after the four years of the BSc) to achieve IEng status.
