UCLan bolsters engineering courses

Students can now graduate from the University of Central Lancashire with enhanced nationally recognised qualifications after it secured a new national accreditation.

Both UCLan’s BEng Civil Engineering Honours degree course and its Masters degree course in Construction Project Management have received formal accreditation from the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM).

The new accreditation is backed by the country’s leading engineering bodies including the Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Institute of Highway Engineers, and the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (on behalf of the Engineering Council UK).

The news follows UCLan's opening of its £35m Engineering Innovation Centre in 2019.

Dr Paul Watson, Principal Lecturer at UCLan’s School of Engineering said: “This is tremendous news for our students as it means that they will now graduate with a degree which is backed by the oldest and most respected professional engineering institutions in the UK.

“It also reflects the fact they are taught by civil engineering professionals recognised for their areas of specialism in civil engineering, using the very latest civil engineering laboratory equipment and software in our new Engineering Innovation Centre.”
