Civil Engineering Degrees

From the world’s tallest structure in 2010, the 829.84m tall Burj Khalifa in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, to the latest bare-knuckles roller-coaster ride (or even the more sedate London Eye) civil engineering structures are all around us. Civil Engineers plan, design, construct and maintain the infrastructure or “built” environment, including buildings, airports, railways, roads, tunnels, bridges and dams.

Like all engineers, the Civil Engineer must master the key principles of design, analysis and management. At Warwick design forms a unifying theme throughout the three, four or five years of the course. The first two years establish a sound approach to the principles of design, which are then applied in the subsequent years to the core disciplines of structures, fluids and geotechnical engineering.

Analytical techniques form an essential part of good design and students develop these skills throughout the course. Management skills are vital to the realisation of civil engineering design, and the course covers such diverse areas as accounting, planning, marketing, human resource management, law, safety, and organisation of the industry.

Modules are supported by practical work in modern, well equipped laboratories, and by residential field-courses in geotechnical engineering in Wales and the Isle of Wight. A further field course in Uganda is offered within the year four module “African Field Course”. Projects throughout the course draw on the School’s major strengths, which are its interdisciplinary structure and the internationally recognised expertise of its staff.
