Description

Civil engineering requires the ability to develop original solutions to design, construction, maintenance and management problems within the context of construction projects. Our Department in close collaboration with the construction industry ensures that our students are taught the skills required to work in today's global market. Students study either the main BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering programme or one of its two specialist routes. Each explores core engineering principles, while the courses chosen also focus on subjects related to the student's chosen route. The BEng Honours suite of programmes is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators which includes the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Institution of Highways and Transportation and the Institute of Highway Incorporated Engineers with respect to registration as a chartered engineer.

Our two professors in the department have been sponsored by Atkins, one of the UK's leading international engineering consultancies, and the Rochester Bridge Trust one of the oldest organisations providing and maintaining river crossings in the UK respectively.

Career options

Graduates can find employment with consulting engineers, contracting organisations, and national and local government.

Requirements

Applicants should have:

BEng Hons240 UCAS points FROM

EITHER A-levels, including mathematics and preferably a science/technology subject

OR a National Diploma in engineering at MMM

OR equivalent qualifications.

MEng300 UCAS points FROM

EITHER A-levels, including mathematics and preferably a science/technology subject

OR a National Diploma in engineering at DDM

OR equivalent qualifications.

PLUS, for both BEng Hons and MEng, at least three GCSEs at grade C or above (including English, mathematics and science) or equivalent qualifications.

Language skills

If English is not your first language, you will need to provide proof of your fluency in English before you can begin a programme. The main systems for measuring this are IELTS with a minimum score of 6.0 for degree programmes or TOEFL with a minimum score of 550 for degree programmes. Recently the TOEFL computer-based test has been abolished to make way for the introduction of the Internet-based test, gradually eliminating the traditional paper-based method. Other qualifications may be satisfactory. We can tell you what is acceptable.

Work Experience

No work experience is required.
