School of Engineering, University of Greenwich, London/ United Kingdom

B.Sc. Civil Engineering BSc Hons

This accredited programme, which is oriented towards a career as an incorporated engineer, has a stronger focus on applied civil engineering technology and design, and includes a higher proportion of group and individual project work than our BEng (Hons) programmes.

Description

Civil engineering is one of the major international construction professions and provides students with opportunities to work for a wide range of employers and participate in many different types of work. This accredited programme, which is oriented towards a career as an incorporated engineer, has a stronger focus on applied civil engineering technology and design, and includes a higher proportion of group and individual project work than our BEng Hons programmes. The programme also develops technical, engineering and managerial skills, as on the BEng Hons programmes, but with assessment structures that recognise the particular focus of the programme.

The programme includes lectures and studio work, on an individual and group basis, together with laboratory investigations and a number of site visits. These offer students an insight into the work and fascinating challenges they will meet after graduation. Our Professor in the department has been sponsored by the Rochester Bridge Trust (one of the oldest organisations in providing and maintaining river crossings in the UK).

The aims of the programme are:

  • To present a range of core and supporting studies that will form a sound basis for your development as an incorporated engineer
  • To equip students with an awareness of engineering in the wider economic and social context
  • To offer a challenging programme that is current, relevant and informed by staff professional experience and consultancy.
