About Civil and Structural Engineering at Anglia Ruskin University ARU

How can we change our current infrastructure to meet future requirements? Could you engineer a solution to change the world around you? Develop the skills you need to address these challenges, with our Civil and Structural Engineering degree in Chelmsford. It's a four-year course that prepares you to work towards Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.

Our Civil and Structural Engineering four-year degree course will give you all the technical skills and intellectual know-how to be a civil engineer in a constantly changing world.

Our MEng course focusses on infrastructure engineering and will give you the practical skills and experience needed to work on multimillion pound infrastructure projects. You'll develop crucial mathematical, technical and design skills that all civil engineers need, while taking a more holistic view of the overall design of a built environment which is resilient to future challenges.

With our newly designed courses your learning will be based around the civil engineering project, giving you the chance to immediately apply the theory you learn in class to the challenges of the project.

Studying our MEng Civil and Structural Engineering degree course will give you the knowledge and skills in the management of construction projects. You will assess the safety of a structure such as an old building to approve it as safe for others to work on, and provide specifications and calculations for designs.

Using our specialist workshops and labs you will learn how to carry out site investigations, select the best materials for the job, analyse and design structures and engineering systems, plan the construction process and assess and mitigate the environmental impact of the project. You'll design, analyse, build and test your projects, developing your technical skills and knowledge through hands-on practice, preparing you to hit the ground running as a graduate civil engineer.

Our facilities are the perfect places to test and research different materials and designs. Throughout your engineering degree, you'll work in specialist labs for geotechnics, hydraulics, structures, engineering materials and concrete testing. You'll go out on site visits, and hear guest lecturers from industry. You might even want to enhance your skills and CV while you study.

This degree is accredited as fully satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng). See the Joint Board of Moderators' website for more information.

What is the difference between a BEng and a BSc?

Our BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering course focuses on the contractor and production, so if it's the construction site that excites you, this is course for you. If you're interested in the design and analysis of infrastructure, the BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering will give you the theoretical framework to work in consultancy.

So what is an MEng?

Our BEng and BSc courses are both accredited. However, to reach CEng (Chartered Status) you will need to go on and do a Masters degree. An MEng is a four-year course that incorporates a BEng degree with a postgraduate year, giving you the ability to apply for CEng status at the end of your course.

What are the differences between our MEng courses?

Our MEng courses will have a lot of shared modules, but give you the opportunity to specialise in your preferred area as well as gain CEng status. If you aren't sure what area you want to focus on, there's always the chance to switch courses when you join with us.
