Civil engineers find creative ways to solve real-world problems by developing the physical infrastructure needed for society to exist – from bridges to houses, and from roads to hospitals and train stations. Our Master of Engineering (MEng) in Civil Engineering brings together undergraduate and Masters-level course content and through it you'll develop a comprehensive knowledge of civil engineering principles and theory, alongside analytical, practical and engineering skills and techniques. Course content will develop and enhance your knowledge and skills in architectural and building technology, sustainability in the built environment, health and safety, computer-aided design (CAD), hydraulics, ground engineering, structural engineering, and strategic and operational management in civil engineering. Creativity and innovation in engineering is also a key focus and you’ll gain a deeper understanding of engineering principles and practice. Key Features Professional Progression | Successful completion of this course represents the most direct route to Chartered Engineer (CEng) status, fully satisfying the educational basis for qualification. Industry-Standard Facilities | Experience hands-on learning with our specialist facilities and workshops, including dedicated concrete, materials, hydraulics, geotechnical labs and structural testing equipment.
All modules in years one, two and three are core and are shared with the BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering course and your final year focuses on a large and / or otherwise complex integrated design project. This may be laboratory or field work based, and whose topic and nature will be determined on a year to year basis. Year One

- Year 1
A lower offer may be made based on a range of factors, including your background (such as where you live and the school or college you attended), your experiences and individual circumstances (you may have been in care, for example). This is called a contextual offer and we get data from UCAS to make these decisions. NTU offers a student experience like no other, and this approach helps us to find students who have the potential to succeed here, but may have faced barriers that can make it more difficult to access university. We also consider equivalent qualifications and combinations. Please contact Nottingham Trent University Admissions team for further information.
The student satisfaction data is from students surveyed during the Covid-19 pandemic. The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data – it is important to note your experience may be different from theirs. This data will be based on the subject area rather than the specific course. Read more about this data on the Discover Uni website.
