Civil and environmental engineering is civil engineering with a focus on environmental issues such as waste management, building on contaminated land and water treatment. Our civil and environmental engineering programme offers you a highly regarded degree course at one of the top universities in this field, preparing you for exciting future career opportunities in designing and working with the built and natural environments.
You will develop a thorough understanding of civil and environmental engineering theory, which will be backed up by practical application through laboratory and research work, field trips and design classes. Optional modules can be selected from those with an environmental theme.
If Chartered status is important to you, an MEng course may offer a quicker, more direct route than a BEng course.
