Study Civil Engineering Degrees

Civil engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with infrastructures, from planning to designing, construction, operation and maintenance, involving new and existing infrastructures. Civil engineering is vital in everyday life, as it is responsible for buildings, roads, power supplies, transportation and communication systems.

An undergraduate degree in civil engineering will develop your foundation of knowledge, covering the basic and complex theoretical and practical aspects of the area. You will study modules on materials sciences, design, and construction management, among others.

Your degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These will include lectures and seminars, as well as practical and laboratory sessions. You may be required to take part in an industry placement to gain professional experience.

Study in China

China has long been regarded as a global superpower when it comes to economic, business and political standing. Its reputation as a higher education destination has taken longer to earn, but is rewarded on merit. The country's government has invested in university and higher education over the last few years, with the aim to increase the international student population. This investment has meant that there are many more courses offered in English than there were a few years ago, making China a new and exciting destination for international students.
