Weekend shift


Nottingham Trent's civil engineering department has taken a battering in the last 18 months. First it was brought under the auspices of the school of the built environment. Staff numbers were cut and now several of its graduate courses are being axed. The school will however still offer its successful core courses of civil engineering design and management and geotechnical engineering design and management.

Almost all the graduate courses are now being taught at weekends which civil engineering project leader Mark Breach says is a big draw for students of less enlightened employers unable to get time off from the day job.

'Almost all the teaching now is at the weekend which is unique as far as I know and that is why we have many UK students.'
