Civil engineering

Integrate architectural and engineering design to develop sustainable solutions to benefit society. Graduate as a creative designer of our built environment.

Do you want to lead the design of buildings that inspire awe, have minimal environmental impact and work well for the people who use them? At Bath, we nurture imaginative engineers who care about the future of our built environment and want to contribute to a better society.

We’ll teach you the art and science of the subject by immersing you in the practices of architectural and engineering design. You’ll take on difficult and realistic projects such as exploring ways to lessen the energy needed to make buildings comfortable for users.

Our course draws on the strengths of a joint Department of Architecture & Civil Engineering, offering you a different experience from most universities. You’ll work with architecture students to embed the professional and interdisciplinary team relationships that will form the basis of your career.

In your first two years, you’ll learn fundamental skills in creative engineering design, analysis and communication. You’ll develop a detailed understanding of mechanics, materials, environmental, geotechnical and structural engineering theory and practice. In your final years, you’ll learn to integrate structural and environmental engineering with architectural design to satisfy a range of needs including delight, stability, energy footprint and buildability.

You’ll take advanced taught units on this MEng, meeting the full educational requirements you need to become a Chartered Engineer.

You can move between our civil and civil and architectural engineering courses, as well as decide whether you want to go on placement, up to the end of your second year.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Do you want to be in demand? This might be the degree for you! We are officially short of civil engineers, and so around two thirds of civil engineering graduates start jobs specifically as civil engineers, and starting salaries are well over £25k last year. Demand for civil engineers and related jobs - we're short of all of them - means that good graduates have plenty of options directly related to their degree when they graduate. This is a subject where work experience can be very helpful in getting a job and many students do work for engineering companies while they take their degrees.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
