Subject

Civil engineering

Civil Engineers are responsible for the design and implementation of a wide range of infrastructure, energy and construction projects. The focus in these varies, from consultation and advisory, to contractor-based work. The BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering degree is designed to enhance career prospects by helping students to develop and demonstrate a sound grasp of civil engineering principles in both design and contracting.

You will benefit from strong industry links and professional practice, giving you the skills required to improve your employment opportunities in this key industry sector. The programme has the support of local employers such as Pat Munro, Mott MacDonald and the Highland Council. Regular site visits, guest presenters and live project work will also enhance your experience.

The first two years (SCQF Levels 7 and 8) of the course are accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) on behalf of the Engineering Council, for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as an Engineering Technician (EngTech). The JBM consists of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE); the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE); the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT); and the Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE). We are currently seeking accreditation for Incorporated Engineer (IEng) for years 3 and 4 (SCQF Levels 9 and 10)raining Board.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
