Civil engineers develop infrastructure and have a profound effect on the way people live through a consideration of function, aesthetics, economics and sustainability. Students learn how to design, construct, manage and improve the environment. This course provides a strong technical background in the key subjects of structural, geotechnical and hydraulic engineering and in management studies, while placing a particular emphasis on innovative engineering design. Learning involves lectures, tutorials, laboratory classes, a residential geology field course and group design exercises, many of which feature contributions from practising engineers. Students learn from a combination of theoretical, experimental and computational study with help to develop sketching and other engineering communication skills. Our approach is to encourage critical thinking and foster curiosity through both teamwork and independent study. For MEng (Hons) degree students this culminates in an opportunity to collaborate with academic staff on a significant individual research project and to participate in a live large-scale civil engineering design project set by our industrial collaborators.
Year one is common to all of the engineering courses. Students study the science (largely physics) and mathematics that underpin engineering principles. Group exercises provide students with the opportunities to undertake preliminary engineering designs. Students begin to specialise in year two, through the study of geology and soil mechanics plus measurement and data analysis, in addition to tackling more advanced solid and fluid mechanics topics. Students registered on the BEng degree, who average at least 60 per cent at the end of year two, are encouraged to transfer to the MEng degree. The course becomes more applied in the third year with the analysis and design of typical geotechnical, hydraulic and structural forms including the use of computational analysis techniques and coverage of construction management. BEng (Hons) students undertake an individual project and in both degrees students address the challenges of providing sustainable and ethical designs that are safe to construct. The main focus in the fourth year is the substantial individual research project, plus a major design exercise supported by advanced modules in analytical and experimental methods.
Ranked first in London for student satisfaction (The Complete University Guide 2017), in the top 15 in the UK for graduate prospects (The Times and Sunday Times University League Table 2017) and among the top four per cent of universities in the world (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2015), City is a leading global institution located in the heart of London committed to academic excellence and focused on business and the professions.
