Appointment With Admission Office


The Advanced Diploma year (Level 5) builds on the work undertaken in the Diploma in Civil & Architectural Engineering (Level 4). It develops further students’ knowledge and critical understanding of the skills, competencies and attributes required for civil engineers.

The course enables students to develop further in the study of a range of inter-related subject areas including mathematics, statistical analysis, surveying, practical and design skills. The development of professional skills is emphasised, together with understanding the wider societal and socio-economic contexts in which civil engineers operate.

The STI MU Advanced Diploma in Engineering (Level 5) provides the second of three years of study which culminates in the BEng (Hons) (Top-up) at Level 6, awarded by the University of Bedfordshire, UK.
