Sustainable Civil Engineering
Our summer school in civil engineering provides a taste of our highly respected architectural, environmental and civil engineering degree programmes.
The programme addresses contemporary issues in designing and working with structures and the built and natural environments, in both national and international contexts.
Teaching will be delivered on the course through a mixture of keynote lectures, practical activities and site visits. You will have the opportunity to work with world-leading staff from the School of Engineering, as well as figures from industry.
Scheduled free time will allow participants to explore Cardiff and its vibrant culture, providing an experience of life in the UK.The content of the course will help you to develop a sophisticated understanding of the role of engineers in designing, constructing and maintaining the physical environment, including buildings and structures, water supply, flood alleviation, and geotechnical and environmental issues.
