Course Structure

The course is offered under the ACCS scheme. ACCS is an acronym for “Accumulation of Credits and Certification of Modules”. This scheme allows students (for specified courses) - instead of studying an entire course - to study one or more modules of that course. Modules passed, are certified individually, and can be accumulated, leading to an award of Higher Certificate, Degree or Honours Degree.

The accumulation of sufficient credits for the award of the BEng is expected to involve a minimum of two years part-time study and the course modules are offered on that basis.

Award

Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering (Level 7 on the National Framework of Qualifications).
 

 

CIT has developed a website which gives full details of all modules for all courses. The website also has information on recommended textbooks, average weekly workload, assessments and exams.
