London South Bank University

Course Introduction

This is a broad based civil engineering course covering the areas of structures, geotechnics, water engineering and water transportation. The technical modules of the course aim to develop the understanding and application of advanced theoretical contents of the specialist subject. Structural topics are taught in the two modules of Finite Elements and Stress Analysis, and Advanced Structural Design. The interaction of geotechnics and structures is covered in the Soil-Structure Engineering module. The Water Resources Systems Management module looks into the water engineering aspects. The transportation field is studied in the Highway and Railway Engineering and Operations module. The final module, Asset Management and Project Appraisal of Infrastructures examines the methods, merits and economics of repairs of existing structures. You'll be required to complete an individual project into a specific area of the programme studied, providing you with the opportunity of pursuing a programme of independent study. The work is to be of an investigative nature having an experimental, analytical, computer-based or fieldwork input. This degree is accredited by the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation and the Institute of Highway Engineers on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements.
