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, 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 Morrison Construction, Mott MacDonald and the Construction Industry Training Board. Regular site visits, guest presenters and live project work will also enhance your experience.
This programme offers those in employment the opportunity to study on a block release basis allowing you to combine work and study.
Another possible route to achieving the degree, if you are in full-time work, is the Graduate Level Apprenticeship.
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).

"The course was right for me as it fits alongside my work. Most of my lecturers are from a site background so they can really link things to the working environment. I have gained some great experience on projects for my employer Balfour Beatty. These include the road and bridge project at Inveramsay Bridge in Aberdeenshire, the Newmill floor protection scheme near Keith, and currently, the A9/A85 project on the outskirst of Perth. It can be tough finding the time to study on an apprenticeship as well as work but doing the theory and experience together will enable me to take half the time to gain my degree."
