About MEng Civil Engineering with Study Abroad in a Modern Language
If you are creative, enjoy design and aspire to improve the built environment we live in then civil engineering is for you. This degree equipa 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 Abroad in a Modern Language 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.
Your third year overseas 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.
You will take part in an exciting group design project in the fourth year, combining all your learning as you tackle realistic design challenges identified through our industry links. Design projects range from transportation to smart cities and from skyscrapers 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, public transport, power generation and supply companies.
