Welcome to the School of Civil Engineering and Surveying at the University of Portsmouth
Establishing and maintaining a sustainable built environment is the responsibility of Chartered Civil Engineers and Surveyors. We've been running courses accredited by the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors for more than 35 years. Our graduates design, construct and manage the structures, property and infrastructure used by millions of people around the world everyday.
The University of Portsmouth offers a range of professionally accredited Civil Engineering and Surveying courses at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
We also offer the option to transfer between courses. For example, students studying at HND level may transfer to the second year of a degree course. Students can also transfer between Construction Engineering Management and Civil Engineering degrees at the end of year one or year two, and BEng students can transfer to the MEng course in their second year or third year.
We also offer short Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses for surveyors and other property professionals.
You can expect to find employment in a wide range of property and construction related markets, including insurance companies, housing associations, public and local authorities.
Graduate jobs include: Project Manager, Civil and Structural Consultant Engineer, Development Control/Policy Planner, Property Valuer, Branch Manager/Executive Mortgage Consultant and Chartered Surveyor.
"I chose Portsmouth because it is recognised by ICE (the Institution of Civil Engineers) and has a good reputation.
In our first year we had a lot of field trips and tackled a lot of very different subjects, ranging from structure and engineering analysis, to design.
The lecturers have been especially friendly, easy to approach and very helpful as most of them have an open door policy."
The School of Civil Engineering and Surveying has a broad range of research interests. There are three main themes to our research activity and all of our academic staff are associated with one of these areas: Environmental Technology and Management; Materials, Structures and Geotechnics; and Construction Management and Surveying.
