Some students find it highly beneficial, both to their overall university education and their subsequent employability, to break off their academic studies for a year and work in industry.
Recognising the benefits of this approach, the School offers you the opportunity to work in industry for a year, after completing the first two or three years of the Civil Engineering course. This is a structured placement in the civil engineering profession.
MEng Civil Engineering with Industrial Experience 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).
