HND in Civil Engineering - Construction
The HND Civil Engineering course is underpinned by design principles, science and application of mathematical techniques. You will study a range of modules such as site surveying, structural design and hydraulic principles. You will also gain a thorough understanding of design processes, principles and concepts.
The qualification provides a thorough grounding in the key concepts and practical skills required in the sector, and their national recognition by employers allows progression into employment.
This Level 5 HND in Civil Engineering and the Built Environment is a two year, full-time course which aims to prepare and equip you with the knowledge, understanding and skills for working within the civil engineering industry, in fields such as management.
Following our Higher Education Review in 2015, the Quality Assurance Agency highlights as good practice: “The clear focus on student employability and the established links with employers”. Birmingham has some major engineering projects planned for the future such as HS2 and Birmingham's Big City Plan.
