If you enjoy physics and maths, you can become a civil engineer. Study structural engineering and construction at degree level exploring issues around environmental protection, planning and contract management.
A Civil Engineer helps to make some of the most innovative structures in the world - the infrastructure for transport, energy, industry and commerce is the result of civil engineering.
The programme, which is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (ICE, IStructE, CIHT, IHE) and Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) is designed to produce graduates who are as comfortable with the engineering and technical aspects of the industry as they are with contracts management, planning and environmental protection.
Site visits are organised throughout the programme and have recently included the M74 motorway extension, the White Cart flood prevention scheme, new Forth Crossing and Whitelee Wind Farm. You may also attend a five-day study trip to Europe, linked to one of our Erasmus university partners.
First year students attend a five day course of construction skills at Inchinnan, near Glasgow. Second year students can travel further afield by taking part in a European study trip which will be partly funded. Students in their third year can take part in either an industrial placement or the Erasmus European study exchange. Alternatively, students can select the Managed Project learning module. We have recently introduced an initiative where our students spend a five day period at Constructionarium, a hands-on construction experience for students and young professionals, where they are involved in on-site planning as well as implementing a scaled down version of a major construction project such as the Kingsgate Footbridge or the Millau Viaduct.
