The HNC and HND pathway in Construction and the Built Environment (Civil Engineering) at UCW provides the skills and knowledge you will need to meet the demands of employers in this vital sector.
The courses will also provide you with an understanding of the way new technologies are transforming construction and civil engineering, and you will also investigate other contemporary issues such as sustainability, professional ethics and statutory responsibilities.
Part-time: 1 day a week for 2 years to complete the HNC and 1 day a week for a further 2 years to complete the HND.
