Course description

The Civil Engineering Surveyor must understand the site. Not all the students will have studied Geography at ‘A’ level, in particular physical geography. Here it is presented in a more practical form. The student learns the basics of natural landforms and their metamorphosis and the effect Civil Engineering projects have on the environment, and the environment on any Civil Engineering project. This subject is seen as important enough to be split into two courses (See CES 2203)


  • Expound the environment, as the context of the site, within which the Engineer is working
  • Show the effects the engineering project has on the environment
  • Show the effects the environment has on the engineering project
