Course Modules

This programme, which is only offered full time, starts with a Year 0 foundation year that provides the essential mathematical and scientific background necessary to progress to Part 1 of the BEng programme in Civil Engineering. The foundation year is studied at Westminster Kingsway College at their Gray’s Inn Campus. The BEng programme is divided into three Parts (Parts 1, 2 and 3), each occupying a full academic year, which leads to a BEng degree that is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators that includes the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Institution of Structural Engineers.
