You focus on the surveying and measurement skills required to ensure that infrastructure is built as it is designed, in exactly the right position.

You take modules from our infrastructure, modelling and informatics, and surveying themes, including:

  • a residential field mapping course in the Lake District
  • digital surveying techniques
  • 3D laser scanning

Between Stages 2 and 3, you take a paid year in industry. This is a great opportunity for you to gain first-hand experience in the civil engineering sector. Some host companies even offer their placement students a job after they graduate.

During the fourth year you develop your research skills through an investigative research project and take advanced modules, such as:

  • geographic information systems
  • applied surveying
