About the course

The MEng programme in Civil Engineering aims to produce the next generation of leading civil engineers, with a focus on sustainable structures, materials and construction.

Drawing on an impressive body of pure and applied research engineers and scientists, we will introduce you to mainstream civil engineering knowledge, ranging from geotechnical site assessment to assessing and designing structures and water engineering.

Professional engineers working with major clients, consultancies and contractors contribute to the course delivery, bringing real world experience to the course.

We will explore the role of the engineer in current and future projects, following the sustainable ‘cradle to grave’ approach called for by major institutions such as the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Institution of Civil Engineers.

The final year of the MEng is about broadening and deepening your knowledge and understanding of the discipline, to better meet the leadership needs of industry.

This course aims to produce the next generation of highly qualified civil engineers with the technical knowledge and personal qualities demanded by industry – including leadership, initiative and professionalism.

It has been designed very much as a ‘hands-on’ learning experience. You will learn fundamental theory, and then have the opportunity to test and apply much of that theory through design in the laboratory, using advanced software, and during field work.
