This course provides a solid grounding in core subjects (structures, geotechnics, materials, fluids, surveying and construction management), and environmental subjects are taken in place of optional modules. Individual projects have an environmental theme.
Similar course content to H200/H201, but you will also study the Introduction to Environmental Civil Engineering and Infrastructure Construction modules.
In addition to the civil engineering core, you will study an Introduction to Air Quality and Noise, and a module about environmental fluids.
Core subjects including specialist modules on an environmental theme; for example, Sustainable Construction and Environmental Geotechnology; individual investigative project on an environmental engineering topic.
A levels: AAA including Mathematics; also including one of the following subjects - Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Design and Technology, Geography, Geology, Computing, Further Maths; excluding - General Studies, Critical Thinking, Citizenship Studies.

You will be equipped to embark on a career in civil engineering and will have the specialist knowledge to meet the growing demand for environmental specialists in the water and construction industries.
This degree has been accredited by
under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council. Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng). Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.
