Civil engineers are a part of our everyday lives; the entire infrastructure of our environment has been influenced by them. From bridges and buildings to utilities and transport; there is no escaping our reliance on their knowledge and skills. This course has been designed to give you a wide range of knowledge and skills that allow you to work closely with architects to turn their concepts and drawings into real life. With an excellent reputation and strong links with industry, this course will position you to become a successful professional civil engineer.
Each year of this course contains six modules. Alongside five of these modules you will complete an integrated design exercise which blends the learning and skills from each module to the application of a client brief. One module in the final year is dedicated to your individual project.
You can opt to take an industrial placement year, which you arrange with our support, between the second and third year of your course. This has a number of benefits: you will improve your employment prospects after graduation, you get to see the engineering theory you have learned in action, they are often paid positions, and many of our industrial placement students ultimately improve their degree classification over their second year results to receive top class degrees. Successful completion of an industrial placement year will add 'with Professional Experience' to your degree title.
Thanks to the generosity of University of Salford donor and Chairman of Morson Group, Gerry Mason, we were delighted to be able to offer five scholarships specific to students beginning courses in September 2016 across all disciplines of engineering and will have ten more on offer in 16/17 and fifteen in 17/18. Students studying this course will be eligible to apply for this scholarship, please see here for more information.
Please note, exact modules may vary in order to keep content current. Your tutor will be able to advise you as to the modules you will study on or before the start of the programme.
