    Course Summary

    The University of Southampton’s Civil and Environmental Engineering MEng degree program looks at the way engineering interacts with the environment, especially in terms of how engineering principles can be used to protect or even improve the state of the natural environment over the long term.

    Students will learn the latest techniques of designing, analysing and applying real world solutions to environmental issues such as floods, water supply interruptions, sustainable water treatment expansion and generating or recapturing energy in renewable ways.

    This program also includes a placement year where students will spend time actually working in one of these industries. Not only will this provide vital work experience (and a much welcome paycheck), it will help them build a network of personal contacts in the industry which can do wonders for their future career.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This is a 4 year program for most students

    Year 1:

    In your first year, you’ll focus mainly on gaining the mathematical and basic engineering background you will need to make the most of the more advanced modules you’ll take later. Year one modules include:

    • Civil Engineering Fundamentals
    • Design and Computing for Civil Engineers
    • Mathematics for Engineering and the Environment
    • Mechanics, Structures and Materials
    • ThermoFluids

    Year 2:

    In your second year, you will build on those core principles. Year two modules typically include:

    • Mathematics for Engineering and the Environment Part II
    • Structural Design and Materials
    • Design 2
    • Soil Mechanics
    • Hydraulics
    • Compulsory
    • Numerical Methods
    • Construction Management

    Year 3:

    Year 3 includes an individual design project as well as modules focusing on civil and environmental engineering, built upon the basic principles you learned in years 1 and 2. You will also begin to take more specialised elective modules which will eventually define your field of expertise. Year three modules include:

    • Structural Engineering
    • Geotechnical Engineering
    • Applied Hydraulics
    • Design 3

    Year 4:

    In your last year, you will have a great deal of choice what modules you take, defied by your own interests and career goals.

    Learning & Teaching

    Southampton’s Engineering degrees all rely on a variety of learning and teaching methods. Depending on the module in question you will experience large lectures, computer learning sessions, or small seminar classes. However, almost all modules will feature a strong focus on hands-on, practical learning methods and many include extensive laboratory sessions.

    Career Possiblities

    Many University of Southampton Civil and Environmental Engineering graduates find very rewarding positions in the public or private sectors. Hiring organisations have included WSP, Mott MacDonald, Laing O’Rourke, KIER, Balfour Beatty, Atkins and ARUP.
