We offer unique teaching and research laboratory facilities, such as:

  • Heavy structures
  • Geotechnics
  • Hydraulics
  • Environmental

We have perhaps the largest Heavy Structures and Water Lab in the UK, in addition to many other well-equipped laboratory facilities in e.g. Geotechnics and Environmental Engineering.

You’ll have the chance to use non-standard, unique testing equipment for your project.

Students have access to modern computer rooms equipped with all specialist civil engineering software.

Study support

You’ll be joining a relatively small cohort of students in which everyone is valued and looked after by members of staff, who maintain an open door policy. You will receive tailored advice and support to ensure you get the most from your studies.

We have a very active student-led Civil Engineering Society (CivSoc) which provides a non-academic platform for interaction between students and academics, industrialists and professional institutions. CivSoc organises a range of talks, site visits and tournaments every year.

We have a commitment to strong pastoral care for all of our students, which includes a Personal Tutor for all students, regular contact hours for tutor groups and our supportive student service teams who are always ready to help with any questions and provide the advice that you need.

In addition to standard study support through taught sessions, our Virtual Learning Environment allows students to access resources, participate in group work and submit work from anywhere in the world 24/7.

University central services are rich with support teams to assist students with every aspect of their journey through our degree programmes. From our Career and Employability Service, through our strong Students' Union, to our professional and efficient Student Finance team, there are always friendly faces ready to support you and provide you with the answers that you need.

Research

Teaching of modules is well-aligned with the research expertise of staff, ensuring you'll learn the latest theory, innovations and industry best practice.

Students have opportunities to work with our research teams - in particular for your MSc dissertation.
