Our students work with a range of industry-standard facilities across our civil engineering courses. From the studios to the workshops to the study centre, there is space and resource for everyone to work, learn and develop designs and projects.
You'll learn the importance of concrete testing during your studies. Our lab includes concrete batching and strength testing facilities for cubes, prisms and beams.
Structural Testing Labs
With access to a range of compression and tensile testing machines, up to 100 tonne capacity, you'll be able to undertake a wide range of testing programs.
Hydraulic / Fluids Lab
You'll spend time in this workshop, equipped with a range of modern desktop hydraulics rigs, open channel flumes and pump testing rigs, in tutorials and for individual and group project work.
Geotechnics / Soils Lab
Learn about the properties of soil and the ground upon which structures are built, by testing on a range of equipment. Software such as EcoSlope and Prokon are available to supplement the machinery.
Studios and workspaces
