Entry Requirements

  • Typical A-Level Offer: BCC to include Mathematics and at least one other numerate Science such as Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Geography.
  • GCSEs: The University normally requires a minimum 5 GCSEs including Mathematics and English at Grade C or above, or their equivalent but consideration is given to individual circumstances.
  • Other equivalent qualifications.
  • IELTS grade of 6.0 with a minimum score of 5.5 in each component.


Year One
In your first year, you will learn fundamental engineering principles. You will explore the relevance of mathematics in engineering and gain an appreciation of issues in construction management, materials and the environment.

  • Conceptual Modelling and Sustainable Design
  • Mathematics for Engineers
  • Engineering Mechanics 1
  • Site Practice, Planning and Measurement 1
  • Surveying*
  • Construction Materials 1
  • Construction Materials 2 
  • Fluid Mechanics
  • Thermodynamics 1

Year Two
In year two, you’ll have an opportunity to apply the principles learned in year one through a series of modules covering materials and structures, hydraulics and surveying. In both your first and second years, you will attend practical field courses covering subject areas such as engineering, surveying and geology/geotechnics.

  • Civil Engineering Practice
  • Geotechnics and Engineering Geology
  • Mechanics of Materials and Structures
  • Analytical & Numerical Methods
  • Engineering Surveying and Highway Design
  • Hydraulics and Engineering Hydrology

Year Three
In your final year, you will focus on the analysis, design and implementation of engineering systems, and sustainability in civil engineering. You will have the opportunity to apply your skills and knowledge of geotechnical concepts to practical design and construction problems. Finally you will undertake an individual project which gives you the chance to apply your technical knowledge.
