Course Overview

Civil engineers shape the world – literally. Responsible for planning, designing and building society’s essential infrastructure, they take a leading role in maintaining the quality of our personal and professional lives, managing a vast range of construction projects, from bridges and buildings to transport links and sports stadiums.

The United Nations predicts a global population of nine billion people by 2050. Consequently, construction professionals are increasingly being called upon to create and maintain the social and commercial infrastructure needed to accommodate such large-scale growth. The demand on civil engineers is high in the foreseeable future.

The Civil Engineering programme is aimed at students who aspire to become professionally qualified engineers and wish to study Civil Engineering with an emphasis on engineering practice and its role within construction.  You will gain an insight into the full breadth of design and construction disciplines that contribute to the multi-disciplinary construction industry.

Main study themes

  • Materials and Structures: The principles of mechanics of materials and structural analysis and design incorporating the behavior and properties of construction materials under applied loading, while considering construction methods, safety and sustainability

With high profile incidents like the recent WannaCry and Petya ransomware attacks making headlines, there is an increasing demand for highly trained individuals who can advise businesses and organisations, government and law enforcement agencies alike on the best ways to protect their computer networks and the valuable, commercially sensitive information stored within them.

The specialist skills and knowledge to thoroughly test the security of computer systems, make them secure and investigate properly if they are compromised are not typically taught within a standard computer science course. In contrast, our has been developed to provide a good practical and theoretical understanding of cybersecurity, hacking, digital forensics and the underlying computer science.

Main study themes

  • Digital forensics: We will explore the digital security landscape, its technologies and strategies for protection to provide you with a good theoretical underpinning for assessing security requirements and preparing strategies
  • Ethical hacking: We will study different types of network and computer attack vectors and penetration tests
  • Programming: You will be taught the concepts and algorithms behind programming to enable you to use whatever programming language that best suits the problem being faced
  • Software Development: We offer a practical guide to the software development process with associated tools and techniques, such as project management
  • Computer Architecture and Operating Systems: We investigate and analyze the origin, structure and use of the fundamental components of computers, how they represent data, the operating systems (OS) used and networking approaches

Course Information

On this professionally accredited course, you will have the opportunity to learn to identify and analyse the threats posed to modern information structures and develop the knowledge and skills to be able to advise a company on how to set up secure systems.

We essentially cover two core themes: general-purpose computer systems technology and specialist security topics in the computing field, including ethical hacking, digital forensics and encryption algorithms. This combination aims to enable you to devise methods to test a system’s security in the future, apply appropriate defences against threats and possess the technical computing skills needed to break into systems that have vulnerabilities.

  • Typography: Design and manipulate type across print and on screen, and in contexts such as posters, books, websites, apps and signage
  • Visual communication: Explore digital and analogue image-making, including drawing and printmaking, alongside contemporary approaches utilizing photo-manipulation and vector graphics, amongst others
  • Design contexts: Investigate professional applications of graphic design in areas such as branding, advertising and information design, and look at the subject’s theory and history across international contexts
  • Design practice: Integrate graphic communications across multiple formats and channels – including print, moving image, digital and interactive – to create coherent campaigns and brand identities

Course Information

We will begin by exploring the basics of typography and visual communication, before encouraging you to experiment with type and image to solve graphic design problems. Throughout your studies, you will have the opportunity to explore the four key themes of graphic design – typography, visual communication, design contexts and design practice. Responding to different design briefs during each year, you will discover a real sense of achievement as you progress through your studies and creative practice.

You will be actively encouraged to be imaginative, ambitious and resourceful, not least so that you are better equipped to face the challenges of an unpredictable, demanding, globally competitive and technologically-driven world. We will help you develop the necessary creativity, critical reflection, questioning, understanding, theoretical underpinning and practical skills to pursue successful professional careers in both home and international contexts.

Course Overview

From 3D modeling to project management, our Interior Architecture and Design courses can teach you skills needed for a creative career using your eye for detail.

Most interior design courses consider technical content, understanding of volume and space, light, function and use. What sets our course apart is our user-centred and multidisciplinary approach – spanning retail, domestic, commercial, architectural, transport and marine interiors – to support you in becoming a fully rounded interior design professional.

You will have the chance to learn to create innovative interior design solutions in a range of media, appropriate to the specific audience and use, taking into account critical factors, such as sustainability, technology, innovation and professional constraints.

Main study themes

  • Interior design exploration: Engage in universal design processes as practiced throughout the international design community and develop work using key illustrative and modelling submission methods
  • Professional studies: Undertake autonomous activity in making, drawing, collecting, organizing and developing images and other key personal ‘triggers of interest’ in a sketchbook that acts as a log of your work. The sketchbook is intended to be a constant companion and provide a place to note, draw and explore all aspects of design activity taught on the course or initiated in other ways
  • 3D modelling: Explore 3D spatial attributes by using surface modelling CAD software, 2D drawings and physical models
  • Design enquiry: Critically appraise and focus your own practice and demonstrate your capability to undertake an investigative activity that illustrates the basis for research and key knowledge that underpins the work of design practitioners in their field

Course Information

If you like the idea of transforming and giving new life to the spaces in which we live, work, learn or play, this studio-based course will teach you how to plan and design imaginative interiors of all shapes and sizes.

A distinct advantage of our course is the scope of your potential field of work – from furniture and lighting to transport interiors. We express this scale in the axiom SMLXL, which stands for Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large and includes anything and everything from interior objects to large public spaces, small spaces such as residential interiors to super large interiors like airports.

Our course is designed to provide you with the opportunity to develop a wide range of skills and expertise needed to become a successful interior designer. It will also help prepare you for a broad range of roles within creative industries – from furniture or event designers to set design consultants, visualisation artists, point of sale design and teachers.

We deliberately strike a balance between traditional hand-processes and emerging technologies. With a focus on the quality of materials and user needs, we will encourage you to come up with original, creative solutions to challenging design problems.
