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.
At Bristol you will have access to our world-class laboratory facilities, including the most advanced earthquake shaking table in Europe.
The first two and final two years of this course are shared with MEng Civil Engineering. You will spend your third year on a placement in industry, applying the knowledge you have gained during your first two years of study.
There is no direct entry on to this course but you can transfer from our other civil engineering courses if you reach a high academic standard and are successful at a placement interview. Places are limited and highly competitive.
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. More optional units are introduced in subsequent years, 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 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 fifth year. This project combines all your learning as you tackle a realistic design challenge, 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.
