About MEng Civil Engineering with a Year in Industry

If you are creative, enjoy design and aspire to improve the built environment we live in, then civil engineering is for you. This degree will equip you to find solutions to environmental problems and to design large and unique structures, such as buildings, bridges, dams and coastal defences.

The Year in Industry course provides the opportunity to spend your third year applying the knowledge gained in the first two years of study in an industrial environment. There is no direct entry onto this course, but you can transfer from our other Civil Engineering courses if you reach the high academic standard and are successful at interview with industry. Places are limited and highly competitive.

At Bristol, you will have access to our world-class experimental facilities, including the largest earthquake simulator in the UK. In the 2017 National Student Survey, our department scored ninety-five per cent for student satisfaction, demonstrating our commitment to students.

The first two years of this course provide a strong foundation in engineering, including structures, mathematics, soil and fluid mechanics, computing and surveying, as well as optional units.

During the third year, you will be able to apply the learning from your previous studies through an industrial placement.

In the fourth year, we introduce more optional units allowing you to pursue your interests while developing key professional skills. You will also undertake a major investigative research project.

Design is central to the course and this is reflected in the projects you undertake throughout your degree. In your first year, you will develop a solution to an open-ended problem by designing and making a model bridge. You will take part in an exciting group design project in the fifth year, which is sourced through industry links and based on real problems ranging from transportation to sustainable housing.

We equip you with the skills needed to become a future leader in civil engineering. Our graduates are highly sought after by top employers, including civil engineering consultancies, utility companies, the army, and petroleum, public transport, power generation and supply companies.
