Program Description

MEng/BEng (Hons)/ BEng (Hons) Extended / BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering

University of Greenwich

Civil engineering is arguably one of the oldest engineering disciplines. It arose from the basic human needs for shelter, safety and warmth. The size of the challenge has grown, but the basic challenges are the same – to keep people warm, safe and secure. In addition, civil engineers now need to consider the environment and the impact that all new buildings and infrastructure development have on the world around us. They face the challenges of maintaining and updating existing assets, whilst also designing and constructing new ones.

From the latest sports stadia and transport hubs to keeping houses and livelihoods safe from flood damage, to ensure the provision of renewable safe energy sources, civil engineers have designed and built the modern world as we know it. This degree programme prepares you for all of these challenges. Civil engineering is an exciting, varied and respected profession. Civil engineers need to be resourceful, practical and resilient. Communication skills are essential and you will need to be highly numerate and literate to succeed. We welcome undergraduates who are curious and enjoy solving puzzles and being creative.

The first year of all of our engineering degree programmes at the University of Greenwich focuses on the understanding of engineering science fundamental principles. This approach ensures that all of our graduates experience a solid foundation of broad technical knowledge and a working understanding of all the major Engineering disciplines – an essential prerequisite for a successful career in engineering management. At the end of the 1st year, students will be invited to choose to either continue on their initial degree programme or to swap to any of the other engineering degree programmes on offer. We feel it is very important that our students are empowered to be able to choose the degree programmes that are most appropriate for their ambitions and goals and we recognise that those may change during your studies with us as you learn more about each discipline. Engineering at the University of Greenwich. Quality. Industry. Rigour.

Skills and experience gained

The degree programme in Civil Engineering will provide you with the knowledge and skills required to understand, design, develop and analyse effective solutions. You will become an efficient and reflective practitioner who takes the initiative to identify traditional and emerging technologies and techniques from construction to materials, from water to pollutants, and who maintains your knowledge and skills throughout your working life. Your Civil Engineering degree will enable you to identify and exploit new developments in technology and to experiment with new and existing techniques in designing and developing sustainable and innovative buildings and infrastructure. You will develop a particularly broad range of skills from advanced mathematics through to sophisticated communication skills. You will develop deep knowledge in the three core areas of civil engineering; geotechnics, hydraulics and structural analysis, but will also gain expertise in project management and professional practice.
