Course summary

Course summary

Our MEng Civil Engineering degree, validated as a four-year course, is a fast track to the top of the civil engineering profession. It covers much of the same ground as the BEng qualification, while being additionally equivalent to an MSc degree. Your degree is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators, which is made up of the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation, and the Institute of Highway Engineers.

What you'll learn

This course will prepare you for a range of technical and professional opportunities within civil engineering. We’ve constructed it carefully through regular consultation with industry experts.

At the core of your degree, throughout which you’ll combine academic and practical learning, is the planning, design, construction, and maintenance of key infrastructure such as buildings, roads, bridges and canals.

We’ll also give you a firm grounding in structural engineering – the analysis and design of structures that support or resist loads.

Other areas you’ll study include geotechnical engineering, the behaviour and stability of materials such as soil and rock, and the study of water engineering.


With an integrated master’s like the MEng degree in civil engineering from the University of East London, you'll be well on your way to a successful career. The high quality of our teaching on the course is widely recognised, and the constant input from industry professionals ensures your qualification will be extremely relevant to employers.

Our Industrial Advisory Board plays a crucial part in regulating your study. This 15-strong board of industry professionals will also watch and ask questions as you present your Team Project. It’s challenging stuff, but it’s also the stage when a lot of recruiting is done.

The MEng degree in civil engineering is a new degree at UEL but recent graduates from our BEng degree course have gone on to work for Balfour Beatty, Transport for London, the Canary Wharf Group, Careys and Atkins. Others have chosen to work in other professional areas, such as finance, education, marketing and housing.

You might decide to specialise as a hydraulic engineer, a structural engineer, or a geotechnical engineer. Your decision may well be informed by how your career develops as you start on the process known as Initial Professional Development, which takes between three and five years. This is the length of time you’re likely to have spent in the industry before you’ll be eligible to become a Chartered Engineer.
