The creation of buildings is a complex operation that requires the skills of many disciplines. Our BEng 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. Optional modules can be selected from those with an architectural theme.
You will have 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.
If Chartered status is important to you, an MEng course may offer a quicker, more direct route.
