There are eighteen units to complete which include:
You will develop the ability to solve construction related analytical problems across a range of Civil Engineering topics. You will also learn how to review and evaluate technical documentation.
Extended Diplomas are delivered as two one year programmes:
Year 1 - Subsidiary Diploma
Year 2 - Diploma/Extended Diploma
Students are expected to satisfactorily complete the Subsidiary programme prior to being considered appropriate for a year 2 qualification.
BTEC Level 3 Diplomas in Civil Engineering are designed to provide a broad introduction to working in the sector and offer opportunities for accessing further study, such as a BTEC Higher National qualification or access to University, or for employment.
The majority of the timetable is spent in conventional classrooms where you will be taught by qualified Civil Engineering staff.
Most assessment is carried out using college devised assignments and projects. Some units, including Mathematics, have open-book timed tests.
There are no costs.
