Civil Engineering MEng (Hons)

5 years with professional placement, starting in September 2023

Develop practical and technical skills to design and engineer the built environment. Use integrated and creative solutions to engineer a sustainable future.

Our course is for students who want to ask difficult questions about the future of civil engineering. You’ll push the boundaries of design and construction to generate new ideas for our infrastructure and cities. Your knowledge will enable you to integrate energy, sustainability and environmental design.

In your first two years, you will learn the foundations of materials, geotechnics, structures and digital design. You will develop the fundamental engineering design skills and attributes, including ingenuity and communication skills, that are essential for exploring aspects of infrastructure and the built environment.

Our courses draw on the strengths of a joint department with architecture, offering a different experience from most universities. Cross-disciplinary group work mirrors the professional relationships you'll experience in your career, and you’ll develop the imaginative approaches and skills needed to tackle a wide range of civil engineering projects.

You can move between our Civil Engineering and Structural and Architectural Engineering courses, as well as decide whether you want to go on placement, up to the end of your second year.

Learn from experts in the field

You’ll learn from leading academics with expertise in civil, structural and architectural engineering. Their collaborations in industry and research feed into undergraduate teaching and contribute to your learning experience. Also, visiting practice-based tutors bring their wealth of design experience to support projects and enrich teaching.

Use specialist facilities

You’ll develop your abilities in purpose-built design studios that foster an atmosphere of creativity and collaboration. You’ll also have access to a range of laboratories to support you throughout your civil engineering studies. These include structures, hydraulics, soils and materials research laboratories. We also house specific teaching and computer laboratories, and a 3D fabrication workshop. We’ll teach you to use specialist model-making equipment such as wood and metal working machinery, 3D printers, CNC routers and laser cutters. This will enable you to realise and test your engineering solutions.

Start your future here

As a Bath graduate, you’ll possess a high level of creative ability and excellent communication and people skills. You could go on to work as an engineering or structural designer, a site engineer or a project manager in the construction industry, where your knowledge, creativity, problem-solving and people skills are highly valued. Some of our graduates continue their studies with us or at other universities, pursuing careers in academia or research.

Units

At Bath, our courses are made up of units of study. Compulsory units cover core concepts that you'll need to understand as part of your degree programme. Some of our courses also offer the opportunity for you to study optional units these allow you to specialise in particular areas of knowledge that interest you.

As an undergraduate, you will be expected to take 60 credits (ECTS) in each academic year. These are usually split into 30 credits for each semester you study. Sixty credits are the equivalent of 1200 notional hours of study; this includes contact time with staff and your own independent learning.

You’ll gain insight into the construction industry and develop your confidence and standing as a professional engineer. Having professional experience can benefit the rest of your degree and improve your career prospects. Our students have worked at small and large internationally known companies including Arup, Atkins, Buro Happold and Laing O’Rourke.

You can decide whether you want to apply for a placement up until the end of your second year. Placement opportunities can’t be guaranteed but you will receive tailored support from our specialist team to help you secure a placement.

Learning and assessment

You’ll be taught and assessed by a variety of methods and it will vary between units. These methods are designed to promote in-depth learning and understanding of the subject.


Learning

  • Design projects
  • Laboratory sessions
  • Lectures
  • Practical sessions
  • Seminars
  • Tutorials
  • Workshops

Assessment

  • Coursework
  • Dissertation
  • Practical work
  • Presentations
  • Projects
  • Report
  • Written examination

Learning and teaching

Timetabled contact hours, which can be made up of lectures, seminars, tutorials and laboratory classes, vary throughout your course and between courses but are typically between 15 and 22 hours a week in your first year.

Independent learning

In addition to timetabled contact hours, you are expected to undertake independent learning and assessment activities. Typically, this might be around 20–25 hours per week in your first year, and include individual research, reading journal articles and books, working on individual and group projects, preparing coursework assignments, presentations, or revising for exams. After your first year, the emphasis on independent learning becomes greater, for example you may do a final year project in the final year.

Assessment breakdown

You will be assessed using a range of methods designed to develop and test your skills and knowledge. These include examinations, reports, projects and presentations. The balance of assessment by coursework, exams and practical work will vary throughout your degree, depending on the optional units that you choose.

As a guide, 61% of the course will be assessed by coursework and 39% by examination. In your third year, you’ll work on a group project and in your final year, you’ll complete an individual project or dissertation. You’ll be assessed individually but you may also be assessed as part of a group.

We can make reasonable adjustments to assessment procedures for students with disabilities, take a look at our Disability Service’s pages for information.

Professional accreditations

By studying a course with a professional accreditation, you could have the chance to get workplace experience, learn about new developments in the industry and apply for membership with the accrediting body. You may also be able to apply for jobs in the industry without having to do any more exams.

This degree is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) comprising the Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Institute of Highway Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation and the Permanent Way Institution on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng).


Recognition of professional qualifications


As well as being recognised as a higher academic qualification, a number of our degrees are also accredited by professional bodies in the United Kingdom. An accredited degree may entitle you to work in a specific profession within the UK, and abroad (where there are reciprocating arrangements with professional bodies in other countries).

The requirements to practise a profession vary from country to country. If you wish to practise your profession outside the United Kingdom, you are advised to confirm that the UK professional qualification you seek is valid in the country in which you are intending to work.

The United Kingdom currently subscribes to The Mutual Recognition of Professional Qualifications (MRPQ) Directive. The MRPQ Directive provides a reciprocal framework of rules which enables European Economic Area (EEA) and Swiss nationals to have their professional qualifications recognised in a state other than the one in which the qualification was obtained. In the event of a no deal Brexit, from 1 January 2021, the MRPQ Directive will no longer apply to the UK. However, it is anticipated that there will be a new system for recognising professional qualifications between the UK, EEA, and Switzerland.
