Civil Engineering MEng (Hons)
Focus on the latest design and construction developments within civil engineering and work towards becoming a Chartered Engineer
Dundee City Campus
To become fully chartered at CEng level (Chartered Engineer) you should complete this five-year degree. Our MEng is accredited as fully satisfying the educational requirements for a Chartered Engineer (CEng).
Civil engineering brings together the design, technology and construction of physical and natural environments.
This course gives you a broad overview of core civil engineering topics. For example, you'll study geomechanics, structural analysis, surveying, materials, and fluid mechanics.
Using this knowledge, you'll explore your creativity by developing innovative designs and structures. You'll also learn about key issues for practicing civil engineers, such as health and safety, and management.
Many of your projects will involve working with others. You'll have opportunities to develop communication and team working skills. There are also opportunities for vocational and industrial placements throughout your degree.
In year 5, you'll complete a major design project working with practising engineers and architects. This will involve all aspects of civil engineering, from conceptual design to managing the construction process.
We are the only Scottish university taking part in the CMS Collaboration, a major experiment at the Large Hadron Collider CERN. Our students have had the opportunity to visit the site during their studies.
Our Civil Engineering society run regular social events. We also have close connections with the Institution of Civil Engineers in Tayside and Fife, and with the Institution of Structural Engineers.
This course is accredited by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE), and the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT) and the Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE) at Chartered Engineer (CEng) Level.
Mutual recognition of professional qualifications after Brexit is a priority for UK professional bodies and universities. If you plan on practising outside the UK you should check with the relevant national authority on the recognition of this qualification.
