Program description

Civil Engineering (BEng)

Civil engineers play a key role in planning, designing, constructing and maintaining the physical environment around us, including buildings and structures, flood defences and water supply programmes.

Our civil engineering courses offer you a highly regarded degree course at one of the top universities in this field, preparing you for exciting future career opportunities in designing and working with the built and natural environments. You will develop the knowledge and skills needed to get your career as a civil engineer started. You will learn through lectures and tutorials, as well as through practical sessions involving research and project work, laboratory sessions, field trips and design classes.

If Chartered status is important to you, an MEng course may offer a quicker, more direct route than a BEng course.

Other civil engineering courses available may include:

  • the opportunity to satisfy the full educational requirements to become a Chartered Engineer if you choose a MEng course
  • the opportunity to follow a sandwich year in industry if you choose the relevant four-year BEng or five-year MEng degree option
  • the opportunity to study abroad at a partner institution for one semester if you choose the relevant MEng (International) degree option
  • the opportunity to study a language if you choose the relevant MEng degree option with a sandwich year at a university in France, Germany or Spain.
