Civil & Architectural engineers apply civil engineering principles to the construction, architectural planning, and design of buildings and their structures. They often work with other engineers and with architects to focus on the function, layout, and aesthetics of building projects. They are needed to ensure that building projects are properly planned, costed, and meet the needs of the project, while taking into account engineering and architectural principles. In developing countries, a large pool of high quality, accredited civil architectural engineering graduates are needed as demand for engineers is significantly increasing due to the investment and development opportunities emerging in these nations.
Civil & Architectural Engineering degree prepares students through engagement with the fundamental concepts and practise used in structures and designs, and opportunities to innovate and be creative within these contexts. There is a focus on environmental design through the study of lightings and acoustics within building, structure or complex. The idea of combining civil engineering with architecture supports to design the creative structures. In collaboration with appreciation of architecture and civil engineering helps students to become conceptual thinkers who will be well prepared to be qualified professionals to produce integrated and sustainable designs by working together with architects, artists and other professionals within a multidisciplinary engineering environment. Students are also required to undertake a self-selected project, to develop their skills to work autonomously at a high level.
Assessment forms an integral part of the learning process. The assessment aims to enhance the learning experience rather than simply provide academic benchmarks. It allows your progress to be monitored during the course and to be enhanced by feedback from tutors, and also provides an opportunity for you to integrate your prior learning when undertaking a more focused assignment or presentation task. The assessments for level 6 will be carried out using several methods with exams and in particular developmental portfolios playing a key role.
The assessment methods used relate closely to the learning outcomes of the course and individual unit, while allowing you scope for creativity in fulfilling them e.g. by self-selection of case study examples to present within a written report within a particular health context. Assessments will in many cases be vocationally ‘sensitive’ and be designed to promote awareness of contextual policies and to promote engagement with real-life local, large and small scale architectural engineering projects.
Advanced level entry via suitable certification will be considered from relevant local diplomas which map against levels 4 and 5 and allow direct entry onto level 6 of the degree.
