About this program

Civil Engineering BEng Honours

This professionally accredited, three-year degree will equip you with the broad-ranging engineering knowledge needed to design, create, and connect the world around us.

This design-intensive programme has a practical focus and, from day one, you'll have the opportunity to carry out hands-on work in our specialist facilities.

You'll gain real-world experience of designing innovative and sustainable solutions to help society address global challenges such as climate change, population growth and resource scarcity.

You'll emerge as a well-rounded engineer, with knowledge and skills across all five civil engineering disciplines – infrastructure, modelling and informatics, environmental systems, human and management systems, and surveying.

BEng or MEng?

Both our BEng degree and specialist MEng degrees provide a pathway to becoming a Chartered Engineer. This is one of the most recognisable international engineering qualifications.

Our MEng degrees are a direct route to becoming a Chartered Engineer (CEng). You don’t need to study any more qualifications after your degree to work towards chartered status.

Our three-year BEng degree can also lead to Chartered Engineer status. However, you’ll need to complete further study, such as an approved master’s degree.
