    Course Summary

    Civil engineers design and build the infrastructure that defines modern life – the roads and transport networks, the bridges and dams, the pipelines, power systems and the very buildings we live in. Construction managers ensure that the ‘boots on the ground’ do their jobs properly, and plan large projects form beginning to end.

    A BEng in Civil Engineering and Construction Management from the University of Central Lancashire is a great way to forge a career in a vital industry which is showing no signs of slowing no matter what happens to the economy.

    The university’s Civil Engineering curriculum was ranked best in the North West for teaching, academic support and overall student satisfaction – no mean feat. You’ll learn the core concepts and principles behind modern engineering, as well as the mathematical and scientific concepts behind them. You’ll learn general management techniques as well as those which are specific to engineering and construction.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

Each module is comprised of time spent in lecture classes, smaller seminars, tutorial and skills sessions as well as much independent reading and study.

    Career Possiblities

    The University of Central Lancashire has excellent graduate employment figures across the board, with more than 95% of students entering higher degree programs or finding employment within 6 months of successfully completing their degree program. Much of this is due to its extremely close links with regional industry. This employability will only be enhanced as the school seeks accreditation from the Chartered Institute of Building and the Joint Board of Moderators in the near future.

    Entry Credit

    Successful completion will result in a full BEng degree.

    Students must typically have been awarded at least 96 UCAS Tariff points to apply. The full list of accepted qualifications can be found here.

    All classes are taught in English, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test. An IELTS score of 6.0 overall with no section lower than 5.5 would qualify, for example.
