Civil Engineering

Our Level 7 course is built around developing the core skills that you will need as a Civil Engineering Technician. You will learn the methods used in the Design and Construction of Roads, Buildings, Bridges, Water and Sewage Treatment. You will study the properties of the key materials used in civil engineering construction including concrete, different types of soils, stone aggregates, timber and steel. You will learn how to carry out a wide range of tests on these materials in our modern laboratories. High-quality plans, drawings and 3D models are critical in Civil Engineering projects. You will develop your skills in computer-aided design and drafting using Autocad, Revit and Civils 3D to create 2d and 3d drawings for Buildings, Bridges, Roads, Pipelines and Site Layouts. Carrying out land surveys and being able to accurately set out new construction are vital skills for a Civil Engineering Technician. You will learn these skills using our state-of-the-art equipment which includes Levels, Total Stations and GPS equipment. We believe in Learning by Doing. Our course is built around a combination of lectures and practical work. You will develop your skills through practical work and both individual and team projects
