BRUNEL UNIVERSITY LONDON

Civil Engineering

MEng  |  Placement Year:   Yes

The MEng programme in Civil Engineering aims to produce the next generation of leading civil engineers, with a focus on sustainable structures, materials and construction.

Drawing on an impressive body of pure and applied research engineers and scientists, we will introduce you to mainstream civil engineering knowledge, ranging from geotechnical site assessment to assessing and designing structures and water engineering.

Professional engineers working with major clients, consultancies and contractors contribute to the course delivery, bringing real world experience to the course.

We will explore the role of the engineer in current and future projects, following the sustainable ‘cradle to cradle’ approach called for by major institutions such as the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Institution of Civil Engineers.

The final year of the MEng is about broadening and deepening your knowledge and understanding of the discipline, to better meet the leadership needs of industry.

Key Modules

This is relatively new course, launched in 2012. We anticipate that our students will help fill the increasing demand for high-quality civil engineering graduates. Contractors and consultants working on large infrastructure projects such as bridges, tall buildings, tunnels, flood defence schemes, transport and power generation are likely environments for many of our graduates to begin their careers.

Some may progress to take posts of responsibility with national and local government agencies or major firms of consulting engineers. Others may specialise in fields such as construction, sustainability, innovative materials, foundation engineering, tunnelling, geotechnical exploration or building services engineering, both within the UK and overseas.

Recent graduates and sandwich students on related courses have secured positions at:

  • Atkins
  • BAA
  • Mace
  • Houses of Parliament
  • Arup
  • Coca-Cola
  • Clancy Docwra
  • Laing O’Rourke
  • Waterflow.
