About Civil Engineering at University of Glasgow

Civil engineers design and build monumental structures (such as the Channel Tunnel) as well as serving the community by providing the infrastructure needed for water, power, transportation and shelter.

What will I study?

Initially you will study courses in mathematics, mechanics, materials, geology, communication studies, design projects and environmental impact assessment. In subsequent years there are a range of compulsory courses within structural engineering, water engineering, transportation, geotechnical engineering and construction management, as well as electives, a major project and consideration of sustainability issues.

The main route to becoming a fully chartered civil engineer is through the MEng degree which usually takes five years. The BEng degree remains popular and can be completed in four years. The route to becoming a fully chartered engineer with a BEng degree requires some further study after graduation which can be done part-time from work.

How will I learn?

You will learn through a balance of individual and team working, theoretical and practical approaches, and consideration of design and construction. Considerable emphasis is placed upon practical work, in the form of laboratory classes, physical and computational modelling exercises, project work, surveying fieldwork, design projects and site visits.

Special feature

The creative process of design forms a major part of the degree programmes, and design activities provide a continuous and integrating thread in all years.

Note

The MEng and BEng degree programmes in Civil Engineering have been accredited by the Institutions of Civil and Structural Engineers. Such accreditation satisfies the academic requirement for progression to full professional qualification as a chartered engineer.
