Civil Engineering BEng (Hons) or MEng
The University of Surrey's Civil Engineering BEng and MEng courses give you industry-focused, practical training, which prepares you for work as a professional civil engineer. There’s a strong emphasis on structural engineering, and throughout your course you’ll work on integrated design projects centred on industry-relevant case studies. Close links with leading contractors and consultancies enable you to take up a salaried position on the University's award-winning Professional Training placements scheme. This valuable experience prepares students for roles in the sector and contributes towards chartership.
Around 35 per cent of Surrey’s Civil Engineering undergraduates are on the unique Surrey/ICE (Institution of Civil Engineering) scholarship scheme, which pairs students with a relevant industrial company early on in their course. They then:
- Spend their year-long Professional Training placement with the organisation
- Benefit from paid summer work
- Receive a generous scholarship bursary.
On graduation, many scholars are offered a full-time role at their company.
On the fully accredited Civil Engineering courses at Surrey, you'll study a lively mix of modules that draw on the University's outstanding expertise in areas such as water and environmental engineering, and advanced geotechnical engineering. You’ll learn through lectures, tutorials, practical challenges, industry speakers, site visits and field trips.
Whether you choose a BEng or MEng, you’ll study the same content for the first three years, before conducting a major third-year project on a topic of your choice. MEng students then do a masters year, which covers the full academic requirements for becoming a chartered engineer. Depending on your progress, you may be able to switch to a BEng or MEng during your studies.
