Construction & Built Environment HNC

This is a broad based course to enable you to develop your career in the civil engineering industry, not job specific or tailored to an individual’s present post. The Pearson Edexcel BTEC Level 4 HNC Diploma in Construction and the Built Environment (Civil Engineering) is a specialist pathway in Civil Engineering which has also been validated and approved by the Institution of Civil Engineers. This qualification has also been validated and approved by the Construction Skills Standards and Qualifications Validation Group (SQVG), which represents the Construction and Built Environment Sector.


About the Course

You will develop your knowledge and understanding of a wide range of construction subjects through lectures, seminars and directed study. Your communication, study skills and analytical skills will be developed through a wide range of assignment tasks, practical sessions and project work. You will develop the learning and study skills appropriate to Higher Education.

The following professional bodies recognise the qualification to contribute towards their requirements and also meet the requirements of the Engineering Council (UK) - Standards for Professional Engineering Competence:

  • Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT)
  • Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE)
  • Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE)
  • Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE)


Key Units

You will study the following core units:

  • Design principles and application for construction and the built environment
  • Science and materials for construction and the built environment
  • Applied mathematics for construction and the built environment
  • Group project in the construction industry
  • Site surveying procedures for construction and the built environment
  • Engineering geology and soil mechanics
  • Civil engineering technology
  • Structural analysis and design
Assessment is 100% coursework based.

Students study for 9 hours, 1 day per week (usually Mondays) and are expected to spend approximately 18 hours per week on self-study. Feedback is given during tutorials after the marking of assignments.

We also have an intake in February 2017.
