MEng Civil Engineering gives you a broad, well-balanced preparation for professional careers in the built environment sector (including design, construction, local authority and specialist work), as well as other areas such as project management and finance. We aim to instil not just an in-depth knowledge of engineering science, but also a solid base of practical skills, an understanding of design, comprehension of the commercial world and a high level of competence in transferable skills (problem solving, team working, creativity, communications and IT). Your first and second years are essentially common with other civil and structural courses offered by the School. Transfer between courses is therefore possible. **Aims** On our civil engineering courses at Manchester, we aim to teach you: - Comprehensive knowledge of engineering science - Strong base of practical skills - In-depth understanding of design - Comprehension of the commercial world - Competence in transferable skills (problem solving, team working, creativity, communications and IT) - To aspire to success in life not just for work, but also as a person who cares about others and the environment in which we all live This degree course focuses on general civil engineering practice through a broad range of core and optional units.
