The BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering Project Management provides an opportunity for learners to develop technical, professional and personal skills to meet the needs of the civil engineering industry. The programme is employer responsive and reflective of current practices in civil engineering so graduates can make an immediate contribution in the workplace. Following discussions with local employers, the programme team reviewed the proposed technical content to include hydrology and highways. The Project Management module has been designed to reflect the needs of a civil engineer employed in a management role.
The award meets the needs of a wide range of professional practitioners in the civil engineering field. These include site engineering managers, transport engineering design managers, civil engineering design managers, structural engineering design managers and managers in transport, water and the environment. The programme also offers a route to others wishing to further their careers and/or educational development in civil engineering and project management.
The modules have been designed to complement each other, to deepen the students’ knowledge and to enhance their employment opportunities in many sectors of the civil engineering industry. The use of live case studies as part of the assessment process ensures currency of practice.
The programme team has excellent links with local and national industry, including the different professions within the industry. This facilitates work experience for full-time students, site visits for students and guest speakers with specific subject expertise.
Students will be advised to join the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) as a student member.
