Civil engineering is all about creating, improving and protecting the environment in which we live. It provides the facilities for day-to-day life, and for transport and industry to go about its work. Infrastructure is the thing that supports our daily life - roads and harbours, railways and airports, hospitals, sports stadiums and schools, access to drinking water and shelter from the weather. Infrastructure adds to our quality of life, and because it works, we take it for granted. Only when parts of it fail, or are taken away, do we realise its value.
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.
