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.
The third year of the international MEng course is spent at a university in the USA, for example, Drexel University in Philadelphia, Kanas University in Lawrence and University of Nebraska in Omaha.
We are ranked 10th in The Guardian league table for Civil Engineering in the UK.
