Our MEng Architectural Engineering degree aims to provide you with an in-depth understanding of civil engineering with a specific focus on structural engineering and an appreciation of architecture and building services.

You will develop a thorough understanding of theory, backed up by practical application through laboratory and research work, field trips and design classes, preparing you for a successful career in the civil engineering industry. Your optional modules can be selected from those with an architectural theme.

An added advantage of this MEng Architectural Engineering (International) course is that one semester is spent studying engineering through the medium of English in a partner university overseas. They include universities in countries such as France, Germany, Italy, the USA, Australia, Canada and more.

The four-year MEng degree allows you to use the last two years of study to expand and strengthen your knowledge in architectural engineering. You will benefit from advanced learning in design and management and an appreciation of the techniques needed to manage and organise a multidisciplinary engineering design project.
