Civil Engineers work in both public and private sector organisations to provide technical and management input to develop design solutions for complex civil engineering problems. They work as part of a team with other engineers and construction professionals. A Civil Engineer needs a broad skills base to work in areas including sustainable construction, structural integrity, geotechnics (engineering behaviour of earth materials), materials, tunnelling, marine and coastal engineering, water, waste management, flood management, transportation and power.
A Civil Engineer’s work consists of:

On successful completion of the five year programme, apprentices will be awarded a BSc or BEng Civil Engineering honours degree awarded by Coventry University and accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators.

The course is delivered in 14 modules over five years by day release. It includes workplace projects based on the apprentice’s own job role and an optional module chosen from: Steel and Concrete Structures; Timber and Masonry Structures; Transport Infrastructure; Hydrology, Modelling and Water Engineering; Construction, Resource and Quality Management and Advanced Surveying.
