Program description

At Brunel we’re producing the next generation of leading civil engineers, fully equipped for key professional roles in industry and the wider community.

Rising populations, progressive urbanisation, ongoing economic development and climate change present many threats to infrastructure. Civil engineers will need to draw deeply on their knowledge, skills and creativity to provide essential, sustainable facilities.

On our courses, you’ll learn both the traditional and cutting edge aspects of civil engineering and how to plan and create the infrastructure we’ll need in the 21st century. A core part of our ethos is sustainability, paralleling the ‘cradle-to-cradle’ approach promoted by major national and international engineering organisations.

Our programme is a hands-on learning experience. You’ll acquire the fundamental theory and then test and apply that theory in the laboratory using advanced software and during fieldwork. Both courses will give you the experience and skills you need to engineer the next generation of essential facilities. These include sustainable buildings, roads, bridges, tunnels, flood protection, waste recycling and construction management.

Our Civil Engineering BEng/MEng courses have a common first year. In Year 1, there is a residential field course. In Years 2 and 3, you’ll take some specialist modules depending on your final degree choice. This course provides a mainstream education in civil engineering with a focus on sustainable infrastructure design and development. You’ll develop essential technical knowledge incorporating surveying and site assessment, designing structures and environmental engineering.

You’ll have the opportunity to exhibit your projects at our graduate showcase, Brunel Engineers, as well as in other industry sponsored competitions.

Potential careers include contractor and consultant positions on large infrastructure projects such as bridges, tall buildings, tunnels, flood and coastal defence schemes, transport, water treatment and low-carbon power generation. Some of our graduates go on to jobs with national and local government agencies or major firms of consulting engineers. Others specialise in construction, sustainability, innovative materials, foundation engineering, tunnelling, geotechnical exploration or building services engineering.
