Our Civil Engineering with Project Management programme begins with a firm grounding across the breadth of civil engineering. As the course progresses, there is an ever deeper focus on management, especially the unique project and construction management challenges posed by major building and infrastructure development.
All our degree courses allow you to undertake a placement year as part of your degree (either in the third year of the BEng or the third or fourth year of the MEng). If you don’t wish to extend your studies by a year, our unique, full-time Faculty Employability team will work with you to find vacation placements in engineering organisations so you don’t miss out on valuable industrial experience.
International Year Abroad
Choosing the international option of this course would involve you spending the third year of your MEng on an international year abroad at an international university chosen for its strength in management studies, such as the University of Alberta in Canada, Arizona State University, Georgia Tech in Atlanta or the National University of Singapore, to experience engineering culture in other countries.
All degree courses within the School share a common first year of six compulsory modules. These expose you to the diversity within civil engineering and provide a firm basis on which to specialise in later years. A key benefit of having a common first year is that you can easily switch between these courses.
UCAS code: H2N2 (MEng, BEng) or H2N7 (BEng)
Our students typically undertake the Integrated Masters (MEng, BEng) as this is the most direct route to becoming a chartered engineer (CEng).

MEng Accredited CEng (Full):
This degree is accredited as fully satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng). See www.jbm.org.uk for further information.
BEng (Hons) Accredited CEng (Partial)
This degree is accredited as:
1. fully satisfying the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng).
2. partially satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng). A
programme of accredited Further Learning will be required to complete the educational base for CEng. See www.jbm.org.uk for further information and details of Further Learning programmes for CEng.
The table below shows the modules that you will study if you commence your studies in September 2015. This information is taken from the University Programme Catalogue, which is a tool designed for current students to select modules.
If you are looking to start your studies in September 2016 it will give you a flavour of what you will study. Our courses have a modular structure where you will be required to study 120 credits per year. A standard module is typically worth 10 or 20 credits.
This is an indicative list and actual content can vary as we regularly review the content of our courses in light of new experiences and developments in the field.

As with all our programmes, there is strong demand for our graduates. When you graduate, you are very likely to find employment in the core contracting and consulting arms of the UK’s £30bn per annum civil engineering industry. However, the technical, communication and management skills you will develop during your civil engineering and project management studies are also in particular demand, for example in international finance, investment banking and large project management.
Graduates have successfully secured positions such as assistant site managers, site engineers, structural engineers and graduate civil engineers with organisations such as Shepherd Construction, Costain, Burro Happold Engineering, Sterling Mynard and Partners, Morgan, White Young and Green, Balfour Beatty, Edmund Nuttall, Carillon, Waterman Group and HBPW Consulting.
Recent graduate positions include:
• Graduate Consultant, AECOM
• Graduate Engineer, AMCO Rail
• Graduate Engineer, ASP Consulting
• Pipeline Engineer, BP
• Graduate Engineer, Balfour Beatty Rail
• Graduate Engineer, Byland Engineering Limited
• Project Engineer, Crowder Consulting

Country-specific equivalent qualifications
The Faculty's country-specific equivalent qualifications web page gives you an idea of the types of qualifications we accept.
English language requirement
GCSE English Language grade C (or above) or an equivalent recognised English Language qualification e.g. IELTS: 6.0 overall with at least 5.5 in each component of listening, reading, speaking and writing.
Our Language Centre provide the Academic English for Undergraduate Studies Pre-sessional course, which is designed to help international students develop their language and academic study skills.
Access to Leeds
We have a policy of welcoming applicants from non-traditional academic backgrounds. If you do not meet our entry criteria above, you may be eligible via the Access to Leeds scheme.
If you do not have the formal qualifications for immediate entry to one of our degree, you may be able to progress through a foundation year. The University offers a one-year BSc Studies in Science for students without a science background at A-level and an Interdisciplinary Science Foundation Year for applicants who meet specific widening participation criteria.
Our International Foundation Year (IFY) is intended for international students who do not yet have the formal qualifications required for entry to level 1 of our degree courses.
All undergraduate applications should be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Services (UCAS).
Once you have applied and your application has been reviewed by our admissions tutor, suitable applicants will be invited to an applicant day, which we encourage you to attend.
Applicant days are very different from the general university open days you may have attended. They will give you the opportunity to learn more about your course, meet our academic staff and students, tour our undergraduate teaching facilities and the campus.
You will also have an informal interview with one of our academics. This will give you the chance to discuss your application in more detail, check that the course is right for you and your career plans, have your questions answered and find out more about studying at Leeds.
We appreciate that not all applicants are able to attend an interview and in such cases the offer decision will be made based on the information on the UCAS form.
