This course gives you a broad overview of core civil engineering topics. For example, you’ll study geomechanics, structural analysis, surveying, materials, and fluid mechanics.
Using this knowledge, you’ll explore your creativity by developing innovative designs and structures. You’ll also learn about key issues for practicing civil engineers, such as health and safety, and management.
Many of your projects will involve working with others. You’ll have an opportunity to develop communication and team working skills. You’ll regularly go on trips, site visits, and other installations which gives you a valuable insight into industry as well as practical experience.
There are also opportunities for vocational and industrial placements throughout your degree.
We are the only Scottish university taking part in the CMS Collaboration, a major experiment at the Large Hadron Collider CERN. Our students have had the opportunity to visit the site during their studies.
Our Civil Engineering society run regular social events and have close connections with ICE (Institute of Civil Engineers) Tayside.
