Civil Engineering degrees at the University of South Wales offer excellent opportunities for a career in engineering, so you can enter the profession with the right knowledge and skills.
We pride ourselves on our breadth of civil engineering courses that are based on the demands of industry, so they give you the skills that employers look for. Our strong links with industry mean you’ll have many opportunities to engage with companies during your studies. These include site visits, industrial placements and, for students on sandwich courses, practitioner mentoring.
Our BEng Civil Engineering programme is accredited as a full educational base for professional development to become an Incorporated Engineer. The MEng meets the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer status in full, while the BEng requires a period of further learning, for example, postgraduate study in civil engineering.
All our Civil Engineering courses offer you the chance to gain hands-on experience of many aspects of civil engineering, including surveying, structural testing, and materials selection. We value the importance of practical learning, so we give you as many opportunities as possible to help prepare you for the workplace.
Civil engineering facilities include new laboratories for structures, materials and geotechnics. These facilities allow us to demonstrate fundamental engineering principles and help students carry out project and research work. We test steel, concrete and masonry lintels, together with other structural materials, to improve product design and discover new methods of construction.
