The emphasis of this course is the application of theory to
engineering practice and management, giving you a great level of the
knowledge and skills required to go straight into the industry.

If you choose this course you will benefit from:

  • A degree course that is accredited as fully satisfying the
    educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng). See the JBM
    website for further information
  • Opportunities for industrial placements at companies including:
    Balfour Beatty Construction, Mott Macdonald, Severn Trent Water,
    Interserve Project Services, Atkins, Jacobs  and Morgan Sindall 
  • Studying with students on courses covering other professional
    disciplines in an integrated department of architecture, building and
    civil engineering which reflects the interdisciplinary nature of
    construction projects
  • A teaching team who are active in research and have industrial
    experience, who bring their expertise into their teaching to ensure it
    is relevant to the needs of industry
  • Relevant field trips and site visits to see how real construction
    projects are undertaken.

There are three core course themes which are carefully balanced
across all years of the course specific technical knowledge,
construction practice and integrated project work. Throughout the
three years of study you will cover the principles of civil
engineering including: engineering analysis, structural analysis and
design, highways and surveying, construction and project management.

In your final year you will get the chance to specialise in two of
the following subjects: contract management, construction finance,
transport infrastructure, timber and masonry structures, steel and
concrete structures, and advanced surveying.

Career opportunities

As a graduate of this course you will be able to work as an engineer

consultant or local authority.

Graduates from this course have gone on to work for engineering
companies such as Jacobs, Atkins, Interserve Projects Ltd, or other
