If you are creative and enjoy design, construction and management of the world we live in then civil engineering is for you. This degree will equip you to find solutions to environmental problems and to design large and unique structures such as buildings, bridges, dams and coastal defences. The first two years of your degree cover the basics of structures, mathematics, soil and fluid mechanics, computing and surveying, as well as some optional units. You may transfer between the BEng and MEng courses during the first two years. In the third year we introduce more optional units allowing you to pursue your interests while developing key professional skills. You will also undertake a major investigative research project. Design is central to the course and this is reflected in the projects you will undertake, beginning in the first year when you will develop a solution to an open-ended problem by designing and making a model bridge. There is a group design project in the fourth year of the MEng which is based on real problems, sourced through our links with industry. This degree is accredited by Joint Board of Moderators under licence from the UK regulator the Engineering Council. An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng).
