    Please note this course is recruiting for 2018/19 intake.

    Would you like to work towards a nationally recognised qualification that builds on the skills you have already developed in the workplace to enhance your employability? If so, our Higher National Diploma in Civil Engineering is the perfect course to choose.

    These professional qualifications provide the perfect foundation for a career in the construction industry. They are also a great basis from which to pursue degree-level study in Civil Engineering, and blend theoretical and practical aspects of the discipline.

    The programme is equally suited to those who may wish to progress on from the HNC in Civil Engineering to study at Level 5 or achieve a professional qualification to allow the application for chartered status in the future. The HND may be used as the Technical Certificate for a Higher Apprenticeship in Construction Site Management (Civil Engineering with Sustainability).

     

    Example modules include:

    During your course you will cover a range of topics that may include:

    • Applied Mathematics for Complex Engineering Problems
    • Management Principles and Applications for Construction
    • Transportation for Construction and the Built Environment
    • Advanced Civil Engineering
    • Hydraulic Principles and Applications
  • Teaching and Assessment

    There are no external examinations on this course. Instead, each module is assessed by means of a series of internally set assignments that involve a combination of scenario-based tasks linked to project work, practical exercises, timed tasks, individual study and presentations.

  • Career Progression

    Our graduates have gone on to pursue careers such as Civil Engineering, Project Management, Highway Engineering, Site Management, Utilities Engineering, Civil Engineering Surveying or Structural Engineering.

  • Entry Requirements

    The HNC in Construction and the Built Environment (Civil Engineering) is a prerequisite to study for the HND in Civil Engineering. However other Level 4 qualifications may be considered as recognised prior learning for entry onto the programme.

    Employment in the civil engineering/construction industry is helpful but not a prerequisite.

    All applicants will be considered on individual merit and interviewed to ensure they have the potential to achieve this qualification.
