Civil and Architectural Engineering

Integrate architectural and engineering design to construct buildings and infrastructure. Develop creative and sustainable solutions to engineer the future. Our course is for engineers who want to contribute to a sustainable future by designing buildings that work well in every respect. You’ll learn how to do this by integrating the practices of architectural and engineering design. Using good design to minimise the energy needed to make buildings comfortable for their users will be a key focus of your study. In your first two years, you’ll learn fundamental engineering skills in design and management. You’ll develop a detailed understanding of mechanics, geotechnical and structural engineering theory and analysis. Throughout your degree, you’ll use the creativity and communication skills that are essential in the challenging environment of civil engineering design. You’ll work with architecture students to mirror the professional and interdisciplinary team relationships you will experience in your future career. In your final years, you’ll explore building aspects that affect the internal environment and energy use, learning to integrate structural and environmental engineering with architectural design.
