About the course
This four-year course will give you all the technical skills and intellectual know how to be a civil engineer in a constantly changing world. Our MEng course focusses on infrastructure engineering and will give you the practical skills and experience needed to work on multimillion pound infrastructure projects. You’ll develop crucial mathematical, technical and design skills that all civil engineers need whilst taking a more holistic view of the overall design of a built environment which is resilient to future challenges. Our research philosophy focusses on future cities and how infrastructure and communities need to adapt and transform themselves in response to future challenges such as climate change, resource and energy scarcity and an aging and increasing population. Such challenges cannot be tackled by one discipline alone and professionals across the sector need to collaborate to create smart and innovative solutions. As a graduate of this department you will be ideally placed to work in such multidisciplinary teams at the front line in responding to these global challenges. You’ll become a creative problem solver and a confident communicator, able to work well independently and in a team. Our facilities are the perfect places to test and research different materials and designs. You’ll work in specialist labs for geotechnics, hydraulics, structures, engineering materials and concrete testing. Youll go out on site visits, and hear guest lecturers from industry. You might even want to enhance your skills and CV by doing a work placement year.
