BRUNEL UNIVERSITY LONDON

Civil Engineering with Sustainability

MEng  |  Placement Year:   Yes

The course in Civil Engineering with Sustainability aims to produce the next generation of leading civil engineers with specialist knowledge of sustainable infrastructure.

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 environmental engineering.

Alongside this, 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.
