University of East London

Course Introduction

This extended course is perfect if you want a degree in Civil Engineering but you don’t have the standard entry requirements.

First we prepare you for your degree during an extra Foundation year, bringing you up to speed with academic skills and a firm grounding in the subject. Then you can go on to do the full BSc.

The course will give you a solid grounding in the design, construction and management of civil engineering work.

We have great links with industry and high levels of graduate employment. You’ll enjoy regular visits to iconic construction sites in London as well as professionally monitored field study courses and projects.

This makes our course ideal for students who, while not necessarily ‘maths geniuses’, nevertheless have good basic skills in that area and aspirations to develop a career in management or a range of technical fields.
