Civil and Environmental Engineering (International) MEng, BEng

MEng BEng Civil and Environmental Engineering


Consideration of the environmental impact of civil engineering works forms part of all the courses offered by the school. However, this course specifically focuses on areas of civil engineering that have a major impact on both the human and
natural environment. The University of Leeds and its School of Civil Engineering have special expertise in these areas.

These areas include public health engineering (including water supply, wastewater treatment, waste disposal, recycling, contaminated land and pollution control), energy use in buildings and construction, and transport engineering and planning. You will also take core civil and structural engineering modules and study the fundamentals of environmental science.

The course was designed to respond to major developments in the profession, such as dealing with contaminated sites, minimising environmental impact and improving the environment, which are of critical importance. It is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators, which will help you gain chartered engineer status after graduation.
