About Civil Engineering Design and Construction at Nottingham Trent University

Civil engineers find creative ways to solve real-world problems, developing the physical infrastructure for society to exist: from bridges to houses, and from roads to hospitals and train stations. Our Master of Engineering (MEng) in Civil Engineering brings together undergraduate and Masters-level course content. You'll develop high-level knowledge of civil engineering principles and theory, alongside analytical, practical and engineering skills and techniques.

Why study this course?

An accredited MEng is the most direct route to Chartered Engineering (CEng) status. This new degree, once accredited, will fully satisfy the education base for CEng status.*

Graduate with a Masters-level qualification, demonstrating a thorough understanding of the theory and principles of civil engineering. Develop advanced problem-solving and project management skills, with design and project work forming the core of this course.

Benefit from our Building Blocks financial package, supporting you throughout your time at NTU and enabling you to make the most of your studies. As well as money towards the cost of your course materials, you'll also benefit from study trips and live projects, included in the cost of your course fees, free personal protective equipment (PPE) and a pre-paid printing allowance.

Benefit from excellent employability prospects. Due to a skills shortage and a boom in the construction industry, civil engineering graduates are heavily sought after.

Gain vital skills and experience in the workplace by undertaking a one-year placement.

Apply your learning to the real world and network with experts in industry, with opportunities to take part in site visits, a residential surveying trip (included in course fees), and live projects as part of the course.

Experience hands-on learning in our modern facilities and workshops, offering industry-standard equipment and support from our team of expert technicians.

Tailor your studies in your final year, with the choice of an optional module to build on your personal interests relating to civil engineering. Where possible, you'll also have the chance to work alongside our postgraduate students on selected modules.

How does this course differ from our BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering and BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering courses?

Our MEng (Hons) Civil Engineering course builds on the three (or four with placement) years of our BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering course with an additional year of study.  This additional year will give you the chance to work on more complex projects and broaden your engineering knowledge base.

Our BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering course contains a higher level of mathematics and structural analysis, in comparison to our BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering course. Our BEng course partially satisfies the educational base for Chartered Engineer status (CEng).

*Accreditation is pending and, once given, the course will be accredited under licence from the Engineering Council, by the Joint Board of Moderators, which represents the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE), the Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE) and the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT). Accreditation will also be sought from the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors.
