The main areas and principles of civil engineering are introduced in the first and second years. More advanced subjects are included in later years, together with optional modules. You will undertake a range of activities, including field courses, group-based design work, laboratory work, CAD work and individual projects in your second and third years. Assessment at the end of each semester combines coursework, examinations, laboratory work and projects. Progression through each course is based on an annual appraisal covering all modules from the preceding year. In the fourth year of the MEng, you will be able to choose from a range of optional modules and undertake an individual design project. You will also complete a group design project, designing and planning a civil engineering project that aims to integrate all the disciplines covered on the course. Typical projects include highway schemes, retail parks, residential complex development and water works.
