The Department of Civil Engineering's courses

Dreaming of a career within civil engineering? Our courses will help you achieve your goals

When you join the Department of Civil Engineering as a student you will have access to industry-led, professionally accredited courses and, according to the previous and current external examiners, Professor Steve Garrity and Dr Andrew McNamara, you will also receive some of the best staff support in the UK.

As a Department, we ensure research and scholarship are embedded into all course syllabuses.  This means that when you graduate you will have an understanding of the latest developments in civil engineering. 

In addition to this industry knowledge, the Department of Civil Engineering has connections with some of the leading organisations within civil engineering, such as United Utilities, Hydro International and Balfour Beatty. Also, a number of representatives from industries in the north west of England are members of the Industrial Advisory Board. As members of the Board, these representatives mentor our final year students, help to devise project work and give advice to student groups.
