Foundation Degree in Civil Engineering
10 Jun 18
Civil Engineers play a vital role in the planning, design and construction of the infrastructure which is fundamental to the economic wellbeing of a region or country. Civil Engineers therefore have very wide career opportunities and are employed because of their scientific knowledge, design expertise, problem-solving skills and business awareness.
This is a two-year foundation degree offered by Belfast Met in collaboration with Ulster University. This course is designed for people who require a foundation degree to enhance employment prospects, or wish to progress to study for a degree in civil engineering, or are interested in a career in the construction/civil engineering industry.
Modules of study currently include: Civil Engineering Construction, Science and Materials, Engineering Surveying, Mathematics, Structures, CAD, and Geology and Soil Mechanics. The course will be revalidated in 2018. All students will undertake a period of relevant industrial work placement, minimum duration 13 weeks, which will assist in developing a sound understanding of the practical applications of some of the theoretical content. This forms a significant portion of the assessment and will be completed in the second semester of year two.
Assessment is by a combination of coursework assignments and examinations. The assignments are often based on case studies or practical exercises and are designed to encourage students to explore the wider application of core engineering principles. This programme of study is likely to include enrichment units which are an additional component to enhance your employability.
