The course is designed to produce engineers who understand and can take part in the design of buildings
from an architectural perspective, while at the same time having a firm grounding in civil and structural
Areas of study include architectural history and theory and building services as well as the core civil and structural engineering modules. Our graduates are in high demand from industry, especially from companies which are multi-disciplinary, and this includes many of the major consulting firms.
This course is taught in the School of Civil Engineering, which is ranked 6th in The Guardian league table and 8th in The Sunday Times league table.
