Introduction

Structural Engineering is essentially the science of anticipating how structures such as buildings and bridges will stay standing. Structural Engineers use maths, geometry and physics to make sure structures will cope with their shape, weight and materials as well as environmental factors like the weather and the ground they’re built on.

Consequently, the College of Contract Management has developed a live online Structural Engineering course in line with the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE). We are the only online UK provider of an Advanced Diploma in Structural Engineering. Above all, this award fully satisfies the educational requirements you need to apply to become an Engineering Technician (EngTech) member of the ICE. The Advanced Diploma alone could land you a position in industry or you may wish to top up your qualification to a full degree. Whatever you choose, this qualification is your first step on the path to a rewarding career.

So, if you’re interested in Structural Engineering but don’t have the right A-Levels or other qualifications to get straight into university, this is an excellent option for you. This is a Level 5 qualification worth 240 credits. A-Levels are Level 3, thus many universities will accept this as an alternative. Meanwhile, some will even consider it as equal to one or two years of a degree course and allow you entry straight into the second or third year. This is dependent on the university so it is well worth doing some research if this is what you’d like to do.

You will receive Advanced Certificate in Year 1 and the Advanced Diploma at the end of Year 2.

Future Career Prospects

Indeed, Structural Engineering is a highly responsible job that requires great skill. Consequently, Structural Engineers can make and upwards of £40,000 with a few years’ experience.

There are many different structures that you might choose to specialise in. Everything we build on land or to travel through the air, sea or space needs to be structurally sound in order to stay safe and operational.

EngTech

This qualification is approved by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) comprising the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE), Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE), and the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT) on behalf of the Engineering Council as fully satisfying the educational base for an Engineering Technician (EngTech).

Thank you for giving me the zest to learn new things

I got the chartered membership (MCIOB), and I would like to thank you for your support. To get the chartered membership was challenging for me, but the CCM team were always there supporting me and ready to help. Assessor feedback was excellent. I have not only gained the Chartered membership but also a confidence to appear for better job opportunities. Thank you for giving me the zest to learn new things. I look forward to taking further guidance for another professional membership.

I will be forever appreciative

After careful consideration on whether to undertake the CIOB professional review direct with the CIOB or go through the College of Contract Management UK I choose the excellent service provided by CCM. My decision was based upon the impressive fact that the CCM has a 100% pass rate in the professional review coaching service. My result supports this fact as I passed on my first attempt. CCM helped me achieve my professional goal for 2020 and for that I will be forever appreciative.

The support and collaborative approach by CCM has made it possible for me

Very often, we take steps towards our desired goal but sometimes we might fail and sometimes we see the bright light of success with the guidance from the right people. The support and collaborative approach by CCM has made it possible for me. The succinct details for the professional review were clearly defined by the institute and I feel it was a value for money. My application has succeeded and finally, I am felicitated with MCIOB. Many thanks to the instructor and Rebecca for being part of my success story.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course

I thoroughly enjoyed the course material as it is comprehensive and covers in-depth FIDIC contracts conditions in the  Yellow, Silver and Red book latest editions 2017.  It is highly recommended that Project Managers, Quantity surveyors as well as Commercial and Contract Managers attend this course to keep abreast of FIDIC contracts development in the industry. The course is presented by an experienced Legal and Claims Consultant to the construction industry.

Thank you CCM!!

I am a very honoured to get my application for MCIOB approved in a very short time and in a single submission. To prepare a Professional Review report meeting the CIOB requirements is a real challenge and with the guidance from CCM lecturers and their internal review process it was done with accuracy. I endorse the CCM's claim of 100% success rate in MCIOB submissions considering the quality of services provided to me and my friends. Thank you CCM!!

I would have no hesitation in recommending CCM

After reviewing many course providers, I chose the College of Contract Management for the MCIOB course. Their communication, delivery of webinars and most importantly the support they provide, both for the exam and subsequent Professional Review service, was fantastic. Even during the Covid--19 lockdown, their ongoing support level never dropped. I would have no hesitation in recommending CCM to anyone wishing to further their qualifications and career’s.

I would highly recommend the college

I was very apprehensive prior to starting the course, not knowing what to expect, but from the first online lecture I was made to feel part of the class. The structure of the lectures are easy to follow and enable full interaction. The lecturers are all very helpful, providing guidance and direction where needed along with very descriptive explanations of all aspects being studied. Discussions throughout each lecture helped me to understand and retain what was being taught. A very big thank you to the College and all involved who helped me achieve a Distinction in the Chartered Membership Programme.

CIOB Chartered Membership

Producing a good professional review report that meets the requirements and standard for chartered membership of CIOB can be quite challenging. However, with the professional advice of College of Contract Management, I was able to write a good professional review report that earned me my MCIOB in a single submission. I strongly recommend the College to whoever that is seeking to achieve chartered membership.

I would recommend the college and the CMP course

Before joining the lectures I had my unknown fears that how would I understand the subject and study materials because of online lectures. But really I appreciate the lecturers who made lectures so descriptive, explanatory and to easily understand. During the lecture I like one thing most that after explaining each topic they put a question for us to know our concentration and understanding towards the lecture. I would recommend the college and the Chartered Membership Programme.
