- Chartered Institute of Highways and Transportation (CIHT)
- Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE)
- Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE)
The overarching aim of the course is to develop graduates who are characterised by their ability to develop appropriate solutions to engineering and transportation challenges by using new or existing technologies, through innovation, creativity and change.
By undertaking the course, you will be exposed to a number of subject areas that underpin the practices of modern civil and transportation professionals. These include amongst other, traffic engineering, transport planning, design of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and use of simulation and modelling software tools. In addition, you will cover all the fundamental disciplines of civil engineering for the development of a skills portfolio that will equip you to seek a professional career with duties related to the design, management and construction of major infrastructure projects.
Such projects are dams, reservoirs, highways, urban transport schemes, bridges, major buildings, flood defences, water supply, sewage treatment, harbours and sea defences. Finally, the BEng (Hons) Civil and Transportation Engineering course is intended as your first step towards becoming an Incorporated Civil Engineer and a practitioner in the global community.
