The Department of Civil & Structural Engineering at Nottingham Trent University is unique in offering courses at both undergraduate and HND levels in engineering surveying as well as a full range of incorporated engineer (HNC and HND) and professional (sandwich and part-time degree) courses in civil engineering. A HND in Civil Engineering Quantity Surveying is also provided. Thus, while, for the purposes of this article, it has been convenient to concentrate on the structural activities related to the civil engineering undergraduate.course, the range of courses offered means that the intake to the civil engineering degree (around 60 students each year) represents only about a quarter of the total annual intake.
The introduction of self-certification in Scotland should be welcomed by structural engineers, but initial reaction varies from satisfaction to hostility - the latter, I believe, based on fear of added responsibility without adequate recompense.
