Civil engineering is everything you see that's been built around us. It's about roads and railways, schools, offices, hospitals, water and power supply and much more.
Civil Engineers provide technical and management input to develop design solutions for complex civil engineering problems. They will work as part of a team of engineers and other construction professionals through all lifecycle stages of development, design, construction, commissioning, operation, maintenance, and decommissioning of civil engineering infrastructure. A Civil Engineer will be required to have a broad skills base to work in areas including sustainable construction, structural integrity, geotechnics (engineering behaviour of earth materials), materials, tunnelling, marine and coastal engineering, water, waste management, flood management, transportation and power. A Civil Engineer might work in public and private sector organisations including local authorities, central government departments and agencies, engineering consultancy practices, contracting firms and research and development organisations.
This degree apprenticeship pathway is not currently accredited. The university will be applying for accreditation of this apprenticeship pathway from the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM), which comprises the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation and the Institute of Highway Engineers.
UCLan works with employers to design and deliver degree apprenticeships and establishes the content and delivery of a programme according to their needs on an individual basis.
UCLan is committed to the principle of an apprenticeship being the development of an individual into a role of which the course is one component. What and how this is delivered is designed with the employer through the tailoring of delivery both mode and content.

Degree and Higher Apprenticeships have flexible entry requirements. We work closely with the employer and apprentice to consider previous qualifications and experience. This may also include consideration of year of entry.
You can register with the government Find Apprenticeship Service to receive updates on all Degree Apprenticeships.
UCLan has an extensive array of learning resources both on and off campus. For those off campus there are many resources:
The Degree Apprenticeship programme includes an End Point Assessment (EPA) to check that students have met the Apprenticeship Standard competencies and are ready to join the profession with full occupational competence.
Apprenticeships allow the learner to combine work and study by mixing on-the-job training with classroom learning. An apprentice will be employed to do a real job while studying for a formal qualification, usually for one day a week at one of our UCLan campuses or training centres. By the end of their apprenticeship, they will have gained the skills and knowledge needed to either succeed in their chosen career or progress onto the next apprenticeship level.
Apprentices in every role follow an approved study programme, which means they’ll gain a nationally recognised qualification at the end of their apprenticeship.
