Mix hands-on learning with vital theory as you prepare for a successful career in civil engineering. Our part-time course is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators, preparing you to work towards Incorporated Engineer (IEng) status.
Civil engineering means getting out there and making a difference to the world around us. Major projects like roads, buildings, tunnels and flood protection are all designed, constructed and improved by civil engineers.
Here at Anglia Ruskin, you’ll explore the concepts, theories and principles of civil engineering, and its underpinning science and mathematics. But you’ll also develop your practical skills and your competence to work as a professional.
You’ll make full use of our specialist testing and research labs. Learn about structural forms, loading, structural analysis and the behaviour of materials. Apply quantitative methods and relevant computer software.
In preparation for professional practice, you’ll learn to work as part of a design team – and look at issues relating to the law, human resource management, health and safety, ethics and risk. Site visits and guest lecturers will connect you with industry.
We also offer our Constructionarium which is a week-long construction experience should you not have the opportunity in your current role to gain such experience.
Our BSc (Hons) course focuses on the practical skills of engineering principles, standards and codes of practice. Our BEng (Hons) course offers more theory and maths.
Accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators acting on behalf of ICE, IStructE, CIHT and IHE for the Engineering Council UK, this degree is accredited as fully satisfying the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng). See the Joint Board of Moderators' website for further information.
Civil engineers tend to specialise in two areas – design and production. This course will prepare you for both:
Graduation doesn’t need to be the end of your time with us. If you would like to continue your studies and develop further skills with us, we offer a wide range of full-time and part-time postgraduate courses including MSc Civil Engineering and MSc Construction Project Management.
Throughout the course, we’ll use a range of assessment methods to help measure your progress. Besides exams, we’ll assess you using a mix of assignments, group work, presentations, drawings, lab work and projects.
The Faculty of Science & Engineering is one of the largest of the four faculties at Anglia Ruskin University. Whether you choose to study with us full-time or part-time, on campus or at a distance, there’s an option whatever your level – from a foundation degree, BSc, MSc, PhD or professional doctorate.
Whichever course you pick, you’ll gain the theory and practical skills needed to progress with confidence. Join us and you could find yourself learning in the very latest laboratories or on field trips or work placements with well-known and respected companies. You may even have the opportunity to study abroad.
Everything we do in the faculty has a singular purpose: to provide a world-class environment to create, share and advance knowledge in science, technology and engineering fields. This is key to all of our futures.
