This 4-year long all inclusive engineering programme helps students to understand all aspects of the development of the physically and naturally built infrastructure in our modern world. In the first year, students understand the overall world of engineering as well as get a knowledge of the basics of advanced civil engineering subjects. This paves the way for a smooth transition into the advanced learning of the second and third year. Along with theoretical knowledge, students get a detailed understanding of practical applications by spending considerable time in laboratories as well as completing an industrial training and a final year project in the fourth year. In the end, students emerge as highly skilled professionals, respected for their knowledge in the corporate world. Earn a Double Degree with SEGi University and the University of Central Lancashire.
The Programme Educational Objectives (PEO) are to produce:

(80% of feedback, within 12 months upon completion of study)
- Graduates established a sustainable career progression in related industries
(20% of feedback, within 5 years upon completion of study)
- Graduates engaged in lifelong learning via continuous personal development
(20% of feedback, within 5 years upon completion of study)
