Course Introduction

The BSc Civil Engineering Surveying and Mapping Sciences is a unique programme in the UK, and gives students a healthy mix of practical field work, classroom and lab exercises. Once enrolled, students are eligible to apply for student membership of the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors, an international qualifying body dedicated to the regulation, education and training of surveyors working within civil engineering. As part of this degree, students undertake a residential field scheme at the end of their first year of study. Throughout their time at UEL, students are introduced and exposed to modern survey equipment and software. Apart from the residential field scheme in Year One, students are encouraged to attend various organised visits to major infrastructure and construction projects throughout London.
