As a Civil Engineer, you can improve quality of life through (re)building or maintaining vital infrastructure. They also solve issues, including supplying energy and clean water to homes, processing and recycling waste, and pollution. The School offers four Civil Engineering courses: an MEng consisting of 4 years full-time study, a BEng of 3 years full-time study, and two equivalent sandwich courses, each of which includes a period spent in industry after two years academic work and leads to the appropriate degree award plus a Diploma in Industrial Studies (DIS). Suitably qualified students may enrol directly on the MEng course. Students on the BEng course may transfer to the MEng at the end of Year 2, subject to satisfactory performance. The courses also offer sponsorship, an outdoor management course and gives you the opportunity to study at an overseas university either in Europe, the USA, Canada, Singapore, Hong Kong or Australia for up to six months in your final year.
