HNC in Civil Engineering - Construction
This course is designed to equip you with the values, knowledge and practical skills that employers in the civil engineering industry require. You will develop your understanding of the professional areas within the civil engineering profession.
The course includes both theory and practical based work that will give you an opportunity to experience work onsite and help you learn to take responsibility for your contribution within a team working on a project. You will also learn how to think and research independently and apply that to the workplace. You will gain the skills and understanding to develop and deliver economic designs and understand how emerging technologies are affecting the design and production phases of civil engineering projects.
Due to the current COVID-19 situation and with health and safety of our students as a priority, we have redesigned this course to include a mixture of classroom-based and online learning.
