Civil Engineering Skills Lecture
The CivEng Skills module equips you with all the skills you’ll need to become a well-rounded engineer. We started with learning AUTOCAD (Computer aided design software) and producing hand-drawings to understand how to communicate design ideas in a clear and professional way. Then we moved on to programming in MATLAB. Now we’ve started to learn about surveying which is really exciting! This teaches us how to level a site and how to understand all the measurements taken and to spot errors. You have to know your site very well before you start constructing. I can’t wait for the first field trip and getting some hands-on experience of levelling!
