Civil Engineering

This course has 3 optional specialist streams: structural engineering and project management; geotechnical engineering and project management; geoenvironmental engineering and project management.

Entry requirements

Normally, a 1st or Upper 2nd Class Honours degree from a UK university (or equivalent overseas qualification). Applicants with a degree in environmental engineering, earth sciences, mathematics, physics and mechanical engineering may also be considered. Lower degree classifications might be considered if there is strength elsewhere (for example, relevant work experience, excellent final project/dissertation, very strong academic letter of reference, very strong application statement linking with career goals.)
