About this program

Structural Engineering With Architecture MEng (Hons)

With an ever-growing need for skilled structural engineers who understand the architectural role within construction, this degree focuses on the conceptualisation, design, analysis, construction, and maintenance of infrastructure.

You’ll study related core subjects in Civil Engineering, for example, geotechnical engineering for foundation design, sustainable construction, and project management. You’ll also undertake modules in Architecture including structure and form, history and contemporary architecture, and architecture in relation to cities, infrastructure and society.

This will give a strong foundation for a career in structural or civil engineering with a focus on structural design.

From the beginning of the degree, you’ll use digital technology for advanced structural analysis, parametric design and Building Information Modelling (BIM).

As the degree progresses, you’ll gain further knowledge of architectural practices alongside civil engineering principles to enable you to fully understand the role between the two in the workplace. Your final year will include a multi-disciplinary design project or design internship in industry to explore your creativity.

Throughout your degree, you’ll carry out group projects at different stages of the program, providing the opportunity to develop team-working and communication skills.

Career paths

Accreditation is being sought for this new course through the UK Professional Engineering Institutions. If achieved, this will influence the career opportunities and routes that graduates can follow.

Graduates of the program will have an opportunity for a career in structural engineering, working on architecturally innovative structures, or in multi-disciplinary contexts. This could be within a consulting engineers organisation, or architecture practice. They will also be qualified to work in civil engineering within the structures area.

Our Civil Engineering graduates have gone on to achieve high level positions with consulting engineers, contractors, and local government, for example. Others have joined research organisations to study for a higher degree.

Given the variety of transferable skills that graduates will develop, opportunities in other sectors or professions are possible.
