You will spend a year in the civil engineering industry monitored and supported by the Department
You will design projects every year, taught alongside core civil engineering subjects such as structures, geotechnics, hydraulics, project management, construction materials, surveying, amongst others
Your degree course is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators
You will have full access to an extensive range of laboratory facilities in our new MECD Building
You will undertake industry-supervised realistic group design projects in your final year
Civil engineering at Manchester enables you to lay the right foundation for a career in civil engineering with a five-year course that will not only lead to a Master of Engineering (MEng) qualification but also arm you with the skills, knowledge and confidence gained from working for a year in real-world industry.
Civil engineering deals with the design, construction and maintenance of our built environment, from buildings to bridges, roads to railways - and considers what this means for the future of our planet and society.
During the first two years, your course is broad-based and covers topics such as structural analysis, hydraulics, geotechnics, construction materials, engineering design, project management and mathematics.
In later years, you have considerable flexibility to steer your degree towards your interests by taking optional subjects such as renewable energy systems, fire engineering, earthquake engineering and computational hydraulics.
In your third year, you will undertake an individual research project on an emerging topic in civil engineering, and, in your final year, you undertake an industry-supervised group design project and advanced units on civil engineering design and water engineering.
After your second or third year, you will embark on a year working in the civil engineering profession. This is a structured industrial placement assessed and monitored by the Department, with support in finding a placement provided. This degree will equip you to enter the civil engineering profession and fully satisfies the educational base for becoming a Chartered Engineer (CEng).
