Work towards Engineering Technician (EngTech) status on our Joint Board of Moderators-accredited course. Mix vital theory with hands-on learning as you prepare for a successful career in civil engineering. When you graduate, you can go straight into work or do a top-up year to achieve an honours degree.
Civil engineering means getting out there and making a difference to the world around us. Major projects like roads, buildings, tunnels and flood protection are all designed, constructed and improved by civil engineers.
With us, you’ll explore the concepts, theories and principles of civil engineering, and its underpinning science and mathematics.
You’ll make full use of our specialist workshops and facilities so that you’re confident in conducting experiments and analysing results to create solutions to engineering challenges and problems.
In preparation for work as a professional, you’ll learn to work as part of a design team – and look at issues relating to the technology of buildings, surveying, the law, human resource management, health and safety, ethics, and risk. Site visits and guest lecturers will connect you with industry.
We also offer our Constructionarium which is a week-long construction experience.
Accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) acting on behalf of ICE, IStructE, CIHT and IHE for the Engineering Council UK, this qualification is approved as fully satisfying the educational base for an Engineering Technician (EngTech). See www.jbm.org.uk for further information.
When you finish you could decide to continue your studies and progress to our BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering course, which would lead to incorporated engineer (IEng) status.
With your foundation degree you'll have career opportunities in areas such as design and production civil engineering.
You might find that you enjoy studying so much that you’d like to continue rather than going straight out to work. Graduating from this course means you’d only have to do one more year with us to achieve a full honours degree.
Throughout the course, we’ll use a range of assessment methods to help measure your progress. Besides exams, you’ll be assessed on your project work, case studies, reports, workplace assessments, presentations and role-plays.
The Faculty of Science & Engineering is one of the largest of the four faculties at Anglia Ruskin University. Whether you choose to study with us full-time or part-time, on campus or at a distance, there’s an option whatever your level – from a foundation degree, BSc, MSc, PhD or professional doctorate.
Whichever course you pick, you’ll gain the theory and practical skills needed to progress with confidence. Join us and you could find yourself learning in the very latest laboratories or on field trips or work placements with well-known and respected companies. You may even have the opportunity to study abroad.
Everything we do in the faculty has a singular purpose: to provide a world-class environment to create, share and advance knowledge in science and technology fields. This is key to all of our futures.
The course fee assumes that you’re studying at half the rate of a full time student (50% intensity). Course fees will be different if you study over a longer period. All fees are for guidance purposes only.
Safety footwear (steel toe and midsole) - £40
Additional costs for Constructionarium
You will be asked to make a contribution of £250 towards the cost of food and accommodation. You will also be asked to provide your own safety shoes or boots and warm outdoor clothing. Other personal protective equipment will be provided.
You can take out a tuition fee loan, which you won’t need to start repaying until after your graduate. Or alternatively, there's the option to pay your fees upfront.
We offer a fantastic range of ARU scholarships, which provide extra financial support while you’re at university. Some of these cover all or part of your tuition fees.
You must pay your fees upfront, in full or in instalments. We will also ask you for a deposit or sponsorship letter. Details will be in your offer letter.Paying your fees
