About MEng Civil Engineering with Study in Continental Europe
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. At Bristol, you will have access to our world-class laboratory facilities including the most advanced earthquake shaking table in Europe.
The Study in Continental Europe degree is a great opportunity to broaden your view of the world and experience a different culture. You will be able to spend your third year at one of our European partner universities.
The first two years provide a strong foundation in engineering, including mathematics, structures, soil and fluid mechanics, computing and surveying, as well as optional units. You will also take language units to prepare you for studying abroad in a foreign language. More optional units are introduced in subsequent years, allowing you to pursue your interests while developing key professional skills.
During your third year overseas, your course of study will mirror the third-year curriculum at Bristol. Visit Global Opportunities to find out more about where you can study abroad. You will return to Bristol for your fourth and final year.
Design is central to the course, and this is reflected in the projects you will undertake. In the first year you will develop a solution to an open-ended problem, such as designing and making a model bridge. Later projects include steel work, reinforced concrete, geotechnical design and water supply systems.
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.
