Programme specification:

The programme will:

- Through the provision of an inspirational learning environment, support the intellectual and personal development of our students in a numerate and scientific context.

- Support our students in the development of the engineering, design and transferable skills required to become professional engineers and, in doing so, equip them to undertake further self-directed learning and development to meet the long-term needs of industry and society at large.

- Provide the educational requirements (in compliance with UK-SPEC) to permit progression to Chartered Membership of the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation, the Institute of Highway Engineers and the Institution of Structural Engineers and registration with ECUK as a Chartered Engineer.

Programme distinctiveness:
- The programme will develop graduates who can play a full role in delivering the responses required to address the major challenges facing global society by encouraging them to grasp new concepts, embrace new technologies and forge the future.

- The programme reflects the long-term needs of industry and society at large, both in terms of technical content and in the way in which our students’ intellectual, interpersonal and communications skills are developed.

- The programme emphasises the autonomy of the students from the outset bearing in mind that:
* Autonomy in terms of developing the capacity to learn for oneself and to identify future learning needs are important personal development goals;
* In addition to requiring a fundamental understanding and command of engineering principles, graduates are also required to be capable of self-directed learning, planning, delivery and development so that they can rapidly become useful members of a commercial and professional team;
* The independence of students is enhanced, giving them responsibility for their own learning in a supportive environment.

- The programme is research-led. This is a key strategic aim of the University and has two facets:
* The programme reflects the world-leading research expertise of the academic staff to ensure that the staff are enthused and that the students are receiving cutting-edge knowledge;
* The programme encourages and helps our students to develop a research-based learning approach (i.e. an autonomous learning ethos) from the outset.

- The programme reflects and enhances the values on which it is based, namely:
* A university education informed by both traditional and state-of-the-art scientific and mathematical fundamental principles in an environment where autonomy can be developed;
* Industrially focused with effective input from industry;
* A world-class Russell Group university with a strong sense of community;
* The course is delivered by Engineers and Scientists, for the Engineers and Scientists of the future

The MEng, BEng degree in Civil Engineering with Transport retains the core elements of the spine degree, MEng, BEng Civil and Structural Engineering, with the opportunity to develop specialist knowledge and skills in the transport field. Common subjects dominate the scheme in the first two years with students increasingly focusing on transport engineering and management and planning of transport infrastructure in years 3 and 4.

Graduates will have a sound theoretical, practical, technical and problem solving education with which they can enter the civil engineering profession or other appropriate professional fields
