BEng (Hons) Civil and Structural Engineering


Duration - 3 Years + 6 Months Internship

The BEng (Hons) Civil and Structural Engineering programme, offered by University of Plymouth is an exciting educational pathway for aspiring engineers to immerse in the world of designing and constructing vital infrastructure. The programme covers a wide range of topics, including mechanics, structures, materials, and design. Students will learn how to design, build, and maintain the infrastructure that we rely on every day. The programme provides a recognised foundation for graduates to go on to further training in the civil engineering professions and a solid basis in knowledge and skills for employment in a range of professional areas. 


  • Students have the opportunity to undertake an internship linking industry and academia.
  • Students will engage in authentic assessments that include the kinds of tasks professional civil engineers do.
  • Students shape their study path with an exciting range of topics available through lectures, industrial placement and project supervision.
  • Students gain invaluable experience and cultivate professional contacts by taking an industrial placement for 6 months.
  • Students are immersed in an innovative and imaginative curriculum that’s continually shaped by the latest developments in civil engineering research.


  • The fundamental aim of the programme is to produce high-quality graduates equipped with the necessary skills to work in the Civil Engineering industry, both in the construction and design sides of the industry;
  • The programme aims to cover fundamental, theoretical, and practical approaches used in all aspects of engineering, including structural analysis, design, materials, hydraulics, and Computer Aided Design;
  • The programme delivers specific knowledge and skills for Civil Engineering, including site surveying, materials for civil engineers, Computer Aided Design in civil engineering, structural design and analysis in civil engineering, geotechnics, hydraulics, environmental engineering, transportation engineering and construction management;
  • The programme aims to provide both a foundation for leadership and a wider appreciation of the economic, legal, social, ethical and environmental context of Civil Engineering.
