    What will you study?
    Core modules concentrate on providing you with a knowledge of the management issues needed in order to make a major contribution within the industry, while your option modules enable you to broaden and deepen your technical knowledge of specialised civil engineering areas. You will also gain a knowledge and understanding of the subjects both specific and complementary to civil engineering.
