Civil Engineering and Construction Management

Civil Engineering and Construction Management BEng (Hons)

Civil engineering specialist activity encompasses design and construction of infrastructure such as buildings, bridges, pipelines, dams, railways, and roads. As construction, projects are becoming ever more complex there is a real need for civil engineers and construction managers to develop their project management skills particularly focusing upon the project planning and management process.

National Student Survey 2018

Civil Engineering at UCLan - ranked top in the North West for overall satisfaction and top in the NW for teaching and for academic support. 

Our civil engineering and construction management course is founded through strong industry links, and is situated in a region which boasts a wide range of cutting-edge engineering and technological-advanced organisations.

You’ll be equipped with the principles and concepts of engineering, underpinned by a sound knowledge and understanding of scientific principles. You will be taught by experience Industrial professionals and academics and benefit from state-of-the-art laboratories and digital teaching and learning facilities within the UCLan Engineering Innovation Centre.

Facilities

On your course you will be supported by the latest state of the art equipment. With the introduction of the Engineering Innovation Centre, due to open in 2019, over £2 million of investment has already been made in new equipment across engineering including flumes and structural testing machines for civil engineering.

Land Surveying

A range of modern survey equipment for use as part of a variety of programmes of study.

Materials Laboratory

Offering a series of practical experiments designed to investigate the properties of a variety of materials used in civil engineering.
 

Fluid and Thermo Dynamics Laboratory

Facilities to assess the engineering principles underlying both fluid and thermo dynamics.

 

CAD Suites & Large Format Printing

CAD software, in particular 3D design software requires a higher specification computer which is offered in the CAD suites at UCLan. Access to large format colour printing is also available.

LIVE PROJECTS AND FIELDTRIPS

You will have the opportunity to engage with live projects including with high profile clients. You'll benefit from speakers from the Institution of Civil Engineering and related institutions and from workshops delivered by regional and national contributors. Fieldtrips are regularly organised by tutors to visit examples of best practice projects.

Hydroelectric Plant Site Visit

A group of civil engineering students visited Heron Corn Mill to view the new plant and gain inspiration for their own projects.

Entry Requirements

For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our Essential and Important Course Information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
