Subject

Civil engineering

The main aim is to develop graduates who are ready to tackle the problems that they will encounter during their careers. Such problems may well be quite different from the challenges today. The course aims to produce graduates that will be able to demonstrate leadership qualities and practical, analytical and creative intelligence.

This course has been designed to fully meet the educational base required to become a Chartered Civil Engineer. As such it has been developed taking full cognisance of the requirements of the four professional bodies that make up the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM): The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE); the Institution of Structural Engineer (IStructE); the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT) and the Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE). The course is not yet accredited, since it is a new course and can only be accredited once outputs have been developed for all academic levels. Our next visit by the professional bodies is scheduled for the summer of 2020.

Do you want to be in demand? This might be the degree for you! We are officially short of civil engineers, and so around two thirds of civil engineering graduates start jobs specifically as civil engineers, and starting salaries are well over £25k last year. Demand for civil engineers and related jobs - we're short of all of them - means that good graduates have plenty of options directly related to their degree when they graduate. This is a subject where work experience can be very helpful in getting a job and many students do work for engineering companies while they take their degrees.

This information comes from the National Student Survey, an annual student survey of final-year students. You can use this to see how satisfied students studying this subject area at this university, are (not the individual course).

We calculate a mean rating of all responses to indicate whether this is high, medium or low compared to the same subject area at other universities.

This information is from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

You can use this to get an idea of who you might share a lecture with and how they progressed in this subject, here. It's also worth comparing typical A-level subjects and grades students achieved with the current course entry requirements; similarities or differences here could indicate how flexible (or not) a university might be.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

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?
