We’re ranked 3rd in the UK for Civil Engineering in the Guardian university league tables 2018. We also achieved 98% overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey (NSS) 2017, ranked 1st out of the Russell Group universities (top research-intensive UK universities).

Research-based degrees

We have an active research environment which enables us to offer a range of exciting courses taught by experts who are leaders in their fields. You’ll be directly engaged in research through substantial individual and team-based project work giving you access to our specialist facilities. 

Industry-relevant courses

Our Industrial Advisory Committee and our academic partnership agreement with the Institution of Civil Engineering (ICE) ensure our courses are up-to-date with the modern practices and techniques that will enable you to succeed in industry upon graduation.

Many of our courses are professionally accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators, which provides a route to Chartered Engineer status in the UK.

Our courses share a common first year. This means you have the freedom to switch programmes up until the end of your second year. You also have the option of spending the third year of your MEng at one of our specially selected partner universities overseas, or extending your degree by taking an industrial placement year option.

Annabel Downing - MEng Architectural Engineering

The School of Civil Engineering has great facilities which have helped me to understand the lecture content. My favourite so far has been the concrete laboratory in second year, where we were able to design, mix and test concrete.
