This programme is designed for those who wish to pursue a career in civil engineering, but with an emphasis on French or German language and practice
Students in France spend the third year with ENTPE, a leading Grand Ecole in civil engineering, in Lyon.
The first two years of the programme are in common with the first two years of the School's other MEng programmes in Civil Engineering with a special bias, instead of optional courses, in French or German. In year 3, spent in France or Germany, you continue to follow the core areas of the Manchester-based MEng programme, along with options relating to French/German or European civil engineering practice. Additional language tuition is available.
The fourth year consists of a selection of course units from the third and fourth years of the other MEng Civil Engineering programmes.
These degree programmes provide the academic basis for a professional career in the planning, design, construction and management of major projects. They also lead to many other opportunities and graduates are in demand from all sectors of industry, commerce and public service. The skills learnt give you the ability to analyse and solve complex problems by a rigorous approach and communicate the results effectively.
Graduates find employment in diverse areas such as computing, law, insurance, production engineering, the oil industry, retail management, in environmental work and in property development.
A degree from The University of Manchester prepares the next generation of engineers to meet environmental and developmental challenges. Additionally, you have access to one of the best career services in the UK and help is available to you on all aspects of your career.
