Comments about MEng Structural Engineering and Architecture - At the institution - Sheffield - South Yorkshire

  • Objectives
    This four-year dual honours course combines the essentials of an architecture course with a structural engineering course, principally focussed on buildings and structures. The course is designed to prepare you for working in the multi-disciplinary design teams increasingly found in the construction industry. It is jointly accredited by the Royal Institute of British Architects, the Institution of Structural Engineers and the Institution of Civil Engineers, so you can choose whether to become an architect, an engineer, or both. Each year of this course includes a mix of architectural and engineering subjects. We offer a comprehensive range of four-year MEng courses, and a three-year BEng course in Civil Engineering. The MEng degrees fulfil all the educational requirements to become a Chartered Engineer, whereas BEng students will need to complete a period of further learning, such as an approved MSc course or a programme of structured learning devised by an employer.
