This Programme Specification refers to the current academic year and provides indicative content for information. The University will seek to deliver each course in accordance with the descriptions set out in the relevant course web pages at the time of application. However, there may be situations in which it is desirable or necessary for the University to make changes in course provision, either before or after enrollment.

You will be introduced to the broad nature of civil engineering through the integration of knowledge from structural engineering, geotechnical engineering and water engineering. The course will also provide training in engineering research methods and will develop a range of related transferable skills. You will also develop an appreciation of the principles and activities involved in the day-to-day management of engineering business units, typical of those within which civil engineering is practised.

How will I be supported?

You will be allocated a personal tutor to assist you with both academic progress and pastoral support when required. The personal tutor will see students early on in the programme, and then as required. For the dissertation stage, you will be allocated a supervisor in the relevant research area whom you should expect to meet with regularly.
