Civil and Architectural Engineering

**From bridges and buildings to utilities and transport, civil engineering design shapes our everyday lives. With the demand for qualified engineers increasing, our industry-recognised BEng (Hons) Civil and Architectural Engineering degree will open up far-reaching career opportunities.** Blending civil engineering competencies with architectural essentials, this course promotes hands-on learning to help you to develop the theoretical knowledge and practical skills you’ll need in your career. Led by our IStructE award-winning civil engineering team, you’ll develop the skills to work closely with architects and turn their concepts and drawings into real-life. Delivered over three years – or four, if you choose to study on our integrated masters - the course content draws from across the civil engineering spectrum. Accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (Institution of Structural Engineers, Institution of Civil Engineers, Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation and the Institute of Highway Engineers), the course satisfies the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng). Learning takes place in our Peel Park campus, minutes from central Manchester, home to world-famous feats of engineering and the largest construction hub outside of London. You’ll study the principles of engineering, mathematics, construction management, and geology. You’ll advance to explore building and architectural studies, looking at building envelope, services, and structural form. We’ll also encourage you to take an additional placement to gain vital workplace experience, adding ‘with professional experience’ to your degree award. **Features** - Develop ability in the design and construction of building envelopes used in modern building architecture, and understanding of advanced structural forms - Explore the built environment, sustainability and urban design topics related to building and civil engineering works, including energy, supply, acoustics and risk - Analyse soil slopes and foundations, exploring embankments, earth dams, and shallow foundations on various soil types - Build knowledge and understanding of modern architecture in the context of building and civil engineering, including design and construction management
