Key Modules

The next few decades promise to be amongst the most challenging ever for the civil engineering community. Rising populations, progressive urbanisation and ongoing economic development, not to mention climate change and the persistent risk of extreme events, already present many threats to infrastructure.

As a result, civil engineers need to draw deeply on their knowledge, skills and ability to innovate through design and use of materials. Doing this they provide essential facilities such as sustainable structures, roads, bridges, tunnels and flood protection and waste management, while minimising the negative impacts on communities and the environment.

Brunel's programme has been designed as a ‘hands-on’ learning experience. You will learn fundamental theory, and then have the opportunity to test and apply much of that theory through design in the laboratory, using advanced software, and during field work
