Develop your knowledge, understanding and professional abilities in civil engineering. Enhance your career with our Engineering Council accredited course that leads to registration as a Chartered Engineer.
If you’re a graduate engineer or a working civil engineer, our course introduces you to the latest thinking in areas such as environmental geotechnics, Eurocodes and sustainability.
We’ll also look at management and professional practice issues, as well as forensic engineering. You’ll investigate a building failure, compile a report and develop your skills as an expert witness.
Leading experts deliver your lectures and seminars and there’ll be frequent workshops, simulations and laboratory sessions, where you can apply your growing knowledge to real-world civil engineering issues. Your major research project will involve an original dissertation on the subject of your choice.
This degree is accredited as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired a partial CEng accredited undergraduate first degree. See the Joint Board of Moderators' website for further information.
Our course will enhance your skills and enable you to work as a design or production civil engineer. You’re also in the perfect position to continue your academic career and move up to our Built Environment PhD.
We’ll assess your progress from your assignments, case studies, exams, group work and presentations, as well as your major project.
