About this course

Overview
In the modern world, a physical infrastructure created by civil engineers surrounds us, impacting on our lives in diverse ways. Civil engineering involves the creative and sustainable application of physics and mathematics, using engineering and computing tools to conceive, design, build and operate this built environment.

We cover the latest developments in core areas including road and rail transport, tunnels, bridges, buildings and dams and also offer many unique strengths in emerging areas including: structural fire engineering, advanced geotechnical investigation and design, use of novel and/or sustainable materials, managing the construction of mega-projects, water security, environmental impact mitigation and disaster analysis and prevention. Career opportunities are hugely diverse and our graduates are in great demand.

The programmes we offer allow our students to specialise in a number of technical streams including structural, environmental, construction management, geotechnical and fire safety. We offer an industrial mentoring scheme that allows students to meet and interact with graduates working in industry and a close-knit, supportive community within which to develop your engineering skills.

Course Modules

What you will study:


Year 1
Your time will usually be divided between engineering, mathematics and option courses. You study several branches of engineering, followed by the first in-depth study of your preferred subject.

For most of our programmes you can choose an option from the sciences or the arts. Chemical engineering students must take chemistry in Year 1.

Year 2
You will study your chosen branch of engineering, supported by classes in mathematics. You will begin to apply your scientific and mathematical skills to real problem solving.

Year 3
You will now be able to focus almost entirely on your chosen field of engineering. At the end of Year 3, you will have the option of completing one more year for a BEng (Hons) or studying for a further two years for an MEng (Hons).

Year 4
You will concentrate on specialist study and innovative coursework that will prepare you for your professional career. Increasingly you will spend time on individual or group design projects. These projects include working with students from other disciplines in our unique interdisciplinary design projects, initiated with support from the Royal Academy of Engineering.

MEng students will produce a substantial project that may involve working overseas or in industry.
