Overview

There is a huge deficiency of civil engineers to meet the future demand. On top of that, rapidly changing technology of design and construction practices, worsen this situation even further. As a result the insufficient supply of civil engineers coupled with insufficient training creates an unhealthy sign for the industry.

Description

Story of the Course:

Governments across the Globe are investing enormously on infrastructure project and Civil Engineering Industry is facing acute shortage of skilled resources to meet the current and future demand.

There is a huge deficiency of civil engineers to meet the future demand. On top of that, rapidly changing technology of design and construction practices, worsen this situation even further. As a result the insufficient supply of civil engineers coupled with insufficient training creates an unhealthy sign for the industry.

Insight into the industry- the most fundamental:

  • It would be beneficial for new Graduate Engineers to understand the work flow of an infrastructure project from tender to various phases of design to construction including quality assurance process and Health & Safety Regulations.

Use of Standards:

  • Design standards are taught in college and due to lack of practical application on real project, students don’t appreciate the importance of using standards.

Software Training:

  • Basic training of most commonly used software such as CAD, Civil 3D, MX Road, MS Office, etc would be very beneficial for the new Graduate Engineers. Setting up layers under CAD standards or using xrefs for multiple aspects or use of Project-wise for project control are generally not taught in colleges.
  • 3D modelling and BIM are very new technologies in the industry and it would be highly beneficial for students to get some knowledge and develop some skillset in this field.

Understanding of Collaborative work:

  • In today’s environment, multinational companies work using their resources from different part of the globe and extensively use technology to communicate and progress the design stages of a project.
  • Different discipline teams work in many different offices and work collaboratively to develop the design model and deliverable. In this environment, a sound understanding of collaborative working and knowledge of using efficient communication devices and technique is very important. It would be very beneficial for new Graduate Engineers to get this knowledge.

Understanding of Health and Safety Regulation:

  • There is a very high importance in the industry to sensitise the work force regarding the safety risk in design, construction and at work place. Employees get training and exposure for this at every levels and sensitisation programme is the top priority of the governments and the industry. Again some exposure of this through case studies would be beneficial to students.

Requirements

  • If you are a fresh Civil Engineer or Engineering Student or Civil engineering Professional, this course will offer you exceptional details of Civil Engineering Industry. You can align your career to the most suited discipline as per your area of interest

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
