Civil Engineering with an Integrated Foundation Year is a one-year programme designed to improve your mathematical and scientific understanding and skills to a level where you will be able to start a degree in the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering in one of the following subject areas:
- Civil Engineering, BEng
- Civil Engineering, MEng
- Civil Engineering (Enterprise), MEng
- Civil and Structural Engineering, MEng
- Civil Engineering with Industrial Experience, MEng
This Foundation year will give you the skills you need to progress to a degree in Civil Engineering, leading to a career in which you will shape the world around you. In addition to mathematics, physics, ICT (information and communications technology) and academic skills, you'll complete a group project, supervised by an academic from Civil Engineering. Throughout the Foundation year you will be taught by University of Manchester academics and you'll have access to the same facilities as any other undergraduate, helping you take your learning to the next level.
Teaching and learning
The programme embraces a variety of approaches to teaching and learning, including lectures, small group tutorials, seminars and project work. Particular strengths are the high level of staff contact and individual learning support, individual pastoral support, project work in engineering-based Departments and associated disciplines within the Faculty.
Your focus is the Foundation Studies Office, where staff provide day to day support. The dedicated Common Room offers you a place to study, prepare coursework, carry out work using the computers, or simply socialise. There is a strong sense of community within the student body and excellent tutorial support. Civil Engineering with an Integrated Foundation Year is delivered on the University campus by University staff.
With strong links with the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering, the environment for study is essentially the same as for undergraduate study on degree programmes in engineering and associated disciplines. You will find that this assists greatly in easing your move into first year of your chosen degree programme on successful completion of the foundation year.
