This course is designed for students who may eventually wish to specialise in structural engineering - as manifested, for example, in bridges and large buildings.
Later course years place emphasis on structural theory and design using different materials. The course introduces you to the effects of large loads, such as those due to earthquakes, wind and fire.
Although emphasising aspects of structural engineering, the core course units cover the same subjects as the civil engineering degree, thus satisfying the academic requirements for entry to both the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Institution of Structural Engineers. The first two years of the course are, therefore, the same as the MEng in Civil Engineering.
In the third and fourth years, you undertake numerically demanding research and design exercises relating to a wide-range of structures. The expertise gained from these exercises can be supplemented by the careful selection of design and research projects and by the choice of options that complement the work further.
MEng Civil and Structural Engineering provides you with a basic preparation for professional careers in the built environment sector (including design, construction, local authority and specialist work), as well as in other areas such as project management and finance.
We aim to instill not just knowledge of engineering science, but also a base of practical skills, an understanding of design, comprehension of the commercial world and competence in transferable skills (problem solving, team working, creativity, communications and IT).

The next University Open Days will take place on 22nd & 23rd June 2018. Please visit the main University website for further information and to register online.
Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2018 will be £9,250. Future inflationary increases may also be applied to each subsequent year of your course, subject to government regulations on fee increases. Tuition fees for international students will be £22,000 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate student finance pages.
Additional expenses: There is a compulsory field course for Civil Engineering students which incurs a subsidised fee* (approx. £100) that contributes to travel, accommodation and subsistence. You are expected to bring your own wet weather clothing and footwear.
The exact cost and dates of the trip are confirmed at the start of your second year.
* In accordance with current University policy, this fee is restricted to be not more than 1% of the annual tuition fee of the course.
