Program Description

BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering (2+2/4+0) 

Course outline
Civil Engineering is concerned with the techniques and procedures by which dams and reservoirs, water supply and sewage disposal systems, power stations, ports, offshore works, transport systems, bridges, tall buildings and other structures are planned, designed, built, surveyed, tested, operated, maintained and decommissioned. The course includes a broad range of activities including field courses, individual projects, design work and laboratory work.

This course will:
introduce the principles and context of civil engineering in a range of subject areas to enable students to specialise
develop students' understanding and critical judgement
improve students' abilities in communication and other transferable skills


Course structure

We offer two options for this degree:

Option 1: two years’ study in Ningbo, following by two years’ study on a fully integrated programme in Nottingham.

Option 2: four years’ study in Ningbo, with one-year “study abroad” possibilities.

Year One (Preliminary Year-Ningbo)
In this foundation year, the focus is on a special programme and English for academic purposes. Designed by highly-experienced staff at the Univsity’s Centre for English Language Education, this programme prepares students fully for their degree courses. Common modules of study across all degrees include:
written and oral communication and study skills
sciences such as physics and chemistry maths for engineering and computer science
engineering communication and IT skills. This module will have a hands-on approach to ensure competency in: Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Additionally, the module involves the use of a software environment (eg MATLAB) to help solve engineering and mathematical problems related concepts and methods studied during the year while introducing programming technical material in drawing, schematic and graphical format.
Students work in small groups to develop their academic English language skills.

Year Two (Qualifying Year-Ningbo)
Common modules of study covered in the first part of the year include:
Professional engineering skills
Engineering mathematics
Engineering solid mechanics
Fluid mechanics & hydraulics

Introduction to electrical & electronic engineering


Specialised modules include:
Engineering communication
Structures & geotechnics
Surveying and management
Civil engineering surveying project
Materials


Year Three (Part I-Nottingham or Ningbo)

Students will build on the core modules studied in the previous year, and there is an opportunity to apply these fundamentals in structures and geotechnic project work.

Year Four (Part II-Nottingham or Ningbo)

Core modules continue in structures, materials, geotechnics and fluids, and students have the option to broaden their studies by choosing from a range of specialist elective modules. Students will also undertake an individual investigative project in an area of their own choice.
