MARINE CIVIL ENGINEERING
Civil engineers design and manage construction projects.
Marine civil engineers specialise in works to river estuaries, along coastlines, and in offshore locations. In places along the coast, maritime engineers will design solutions to protect homes, businesses and natural environments from damage caused by the sea.
Qualifications and Training
You can do a foundation degree, higher national diploma or degree in civil engineering.
Many universities specialise in particular areas of civil engineering, like:
Some courses include a work placement, which can be useful for making industry contacts to help you find work after you finish your studies.
You can apply for a postgraduate master's award in civil engineering if you have a related degree like maths, science or geology.
You will usually need:
2 or 3 A levels, or equivalent, including maths and a science for a degree
a degree in a relevant subject for postgraduate study
BTEC Level 3 Diploma or Extended Diploma in Construction and the Built Environment – Civil Engineering. This may lead to professional qualification as a Civil Engineering Technician or Incorporated Civil Engineer
An apprenticeship where you work and study part-time which again can lead to gaining Civil Engineering Technician or Incorporated Civil Engineer status.
