What we offer
Professionally accredited courses
Establishing and maintaining a sustainable built environment is the responsibility of Chartered Civil Engineers and Surveyors. We've been running courses accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the Institution of Civil Engineers for more than 35 years.
The School of Civil Engineering and Surveying has a wide range of laboratories which are used for both teaching and research, and have benefited from over £500,000 of investment within the past three years.
First-hand experience in the field
Some of the most renowned geological locations in the UK are easily accessible from Portsmouth. Our programme of field trips provides our students with the practical knowledge and experience of the kind of site visits made by professional Civil Engineers and Surveyors.
A year in industry
Over 50% of employers actively recruit graduates who have relevant work experience. So, taking an optional yearlong placement is an excellent way to get ahead in the job hunt. Our Student Placement and Employability Centre (SPEC) is dedicated to setting your career on the right course.
The Maths Café is a daily drop-in facility, available to any student of the University where you can receive help on any maths or stats problem you encounter in your studies. We also provide handouts on key topics and computer aided learning packages.
