In an increasingly complex and challenging world, knowledge and expertise beyond a single discipline is valuable for 21st-century engineers. This interdisciplinary course combines fundamental civil and structural engineering modules with those taught by the Department of Geography. The course goes beyond buildings and infrastructure. You'll approach issues on a global scale and consider how humans interact with the world, their environment, and society. In years one and two you'll establish a basis in engineering mechanics and learn about human geography, development and geographical methods. Your third year includes a major design project involving independent and group work, and integration of technical, professional and management knowledge in a real-life social context. You'll also get the chance to go on a geography field research class to New York. In your final year you'll extend your knowledge into specialist areas through an individual research project. As a graduate you'll understand how to address urban development, social issues, poverty, housing, food resources, waste, sustainability and the sustainable development of infrastructure.
