Our four-year MEng Civil and Environmental Engineering course emphasises the interactions between engineering and the environment with a focus on the protection and improvement of the natural environment in the service of society. Students can also take the Industrial Placement Year, providing the opportunity for a year-long placement with an engineering-based organisation.
The MEng Civil and Environmental Engineering course has a strong focus on designing and applying technical solutions to problems such as controlling floods, delivering water supplies, managing waste, treating waste water, and generating energy from renewable sources.
The first two years will provide you with core knowledge in mechanics, structures, materials, thermofluids and construction management. The third year will further develop your knowledge of hydraulics, structures and geotechnics.
You will have the opportunity to tailor your degree to your interests in your final year with your choice of specialist optional modules from earthquake engineering to coastal flood defence.
Design is an integral to all our engineering courses; you will develop key design skills that you will use throughout the course. You will have the chance to carry out individual and group design projects to create real solutions.
You can also take the Industrial Placement Year, which is an additional year-long module that allows you to apply for a placement with an engineering-based organisation. The successful placement will be recognised on your Degree Certificate.
