The creation of buildings is a complex operation that requires the skills of many disciplines. Our MEng Architectural Engineering degree aims to provide you with an in-depth understanding of civil engineering with a specific focus on structural engineering and an appreciation of architecture and building services.
This course brings together the precision of engineering with the creativity of building design, with an emphasis on environmental factors. You will develop a thorough understanding of theory, backed up by practical application through laboratory and research work, field trips and design classes, preparing you for a successful career in the civil engineering industry. Your optional modules can be selected from those with an architectural theme.
This course includes the opportunity to take a year of industrial placement between your second and third years of academic study. With this option we will support you in finding a placement that will allow you to experience at first- hand, a professional working environment. If you are successful in securing a placement you will be paid a salary and will enhance your employability skills through direct experience of working in business, industry or the public sector.
An added advantage of this international course is that one semester is spent studying engineering through the medium of English in a partner university overseas. They include universities in countries such as France, Germany, Italy, the USA, Australia, Canada and more.
The MEng degree allows you to use the last two years to expand and strengthen your knowledge in architectural engineering. You will benefit from advanced learning in design and management and an appreciation of the techniques needed to manage and organise a multidisciplinary engineering design project.
