Construction and the Built Environment (Civil Engineering) HND Level 5

Course Overview

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).

The modules studied may include:

  • Applied Mathematics for Complex Engineering Problems
  • Management Principles and Applications for Construction
  • Health, Safety and Welfare for Construction and the Built Environment
  • Advanced Civil Engineering
  • Hydraulic Principles and Applications
