Student Destinations

The construction sector is one of the largest employers in the UK and demand is strong for civil engineering graduates. These courses are ideal for those seeking deeper and more advanced knowledge in a broad range of subjects for employment within the public and private sector as graduate engineers, or if you wish to pursue an academic or research-orientated career.

The courses aim to keep you up-to-date with current events and the latest, leading-edge industry innovations through opportunities to visit facilities and hear from leading industry figures. These visits are a great way to interact with potential employers and have recently included I54 Wolverhampton Junction Technopark.

If you are already working within the profession, the courses provide an opportunity to enhance previously acquired knowledge with latest issues and technological advances. For example, all design-related modules are taught in accordance with the new Eurocodes. In addition, we employ civil and structural engineering software, such as ANSYS and MIDAS for teaching and learning; you are also able to download these computer applications to undertake your coursework.

Entry Requirements

Normal entry requires a minimum 2.2 UK or overseas undergraduate honours degree in Civil Engineering.

Holders of CEng accredited Bachelor’s degree can enrol on the course provided they meet the entry requirements. This will automatically meet the educational base for Chartered Engineer status.

Holders of an IEng accredited or an overseas Bachelor’s degree will need to apply for an academic assessment to be formally approved for CEng. They may be required to complete extra modules if their Bachelor degree is deemed to be not technical enough.

Applicants with professional/industrial experience and/or training, but not meeting the normal entry requirements will be considered on their merits, with the understanding that on completion of the award they may not be eligible for Chartered status as they will not be fulfilling the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) requirements. Applicants are therefore strongly advised to check with the JBM and Engineering Council before committing to the course.
