HNC (part-time) in Civil Engineering (Jersey)

Who is this course for?

From the rebuilding of inner cities to remarkable constructions like the Channel tunnel, the world is full of building and infrastructure projects that couldn’t happen without civil engineers.

This course is intended for those taking the first steps to becoming a Civil Engineer. It has been designed and facilitated in partnership with the Civil Engineering sector in Jersey, and our long-term partner, London South Bank University (LSBU). If you are currently employed by a civil engineering company, you can apply to study in your own right for the course. Alternatively, you can apply through the Trackers Apprenticeship scheme.

This course has been developed to give a practical design-orientated course which will equip you with the skills and qualifications you need to join the Construction / Civil Engineering industry.

Civil Engineering is a combination of many scientific specialisms including mechanics, hydraulics, geotechnics, materials science and mathematics. You’ll learn to apply mathematics and scientific knowledge (particularly physics) to real-life situations and problems that arise from creating and maintaining structures, considering environmental, financial, legal and ethical considerations.
