Civil Engineering is one of the oldest professions in the world, but is constantly modernized based on current socio-economic conditions. BEng(Hons)/MEng Civil Engineering & Construction aims at providing students with expert training in order to become highly-skilled professionals engaged in the design, analysis and supervision of construction works of the built environment.
The science of Civil Engineering deals with the application of technical, scientific and mathematical knowledge in order to utilize the laws of nature and natural resources for the design of construction works (e.g. buildings, bridges, water supply systems, fuel storage tanks) and technical and social infrastructure (e.g. airports, roads, ports, dams) in order to improve the quality of life of social members.
Professional activity of civil engineers is multidisciplinary and diverse and concerns issues related to planning, design, construction supervision, configuration and maintenance of buildings and road networks, bridges, ports, dams, coastal infrastructure, airports, water supply systems, clean water systems, mining works, excavation etc.
The curriculum of Civil Engineering and Construction programme of study is adapted to the needs of the Greek industry, providing the fundamental knowledge and theory of the science and training the students in order to successfully put this knowledge into practice, whilst being fully in line with the curriculum of the British partner university.
The course is largely participatory and includes theoretical courses, laboratory sessions and field/practical work. Theoretical part is presented during the lectures and is linked to laboratory and field work. Laboratory courses are conducted at Metropolitan College’s fully equipped laboratory installations.
Duration: 4 to 5 years
