Comments about MEng Civil and Structural Engineering (4 Years) - At the institution - Manchester - Greater Manchester

  • Objectives
    Although emphasising aspects of structural engineering, the core course units of the programme cover the same subjects as the civil engineering degree, thus satisfying the academic requirements for entry to both the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Institution of Structural Engineers. The first two years of the programme are, therefore, the same as the civil engineering degree described earlier. In the third and fourth years, you undertake numerically demanding research and design exercises relating to a wide-range of structures. The expertise gained from these exercises can be supplemented by the careful selection of design and research projects and by the choice of options that complement the work further.
  • Entry requirements
    The programme in civil and structural engineering has been designed for those who may eventually wish to specialise in structural engineering such as bridges and large buildings. The emphasis is on structural theory and design using different materials and introduces you to the effects of large loads such as those due to earthquakes and wind.
