Civil and Infrastructure Engineering at City, University of London - UCAS

Course summary

This integrated master's degree covers key subjects of structural, geotechnical and hydraulic engineering in a collaborative design setting. The knowledge and skills you'll gain will prepare you for careers developing sustainable civil and infrastructure facilities for a low-carbon future, while an industry placement will boost your employability. Prepare for a career in civil and infrastructure engineering, working with consultants or contractors and contributing to a more sustainable future. This integrated master's course covers structures, geotechnics, hydraulics, and sustainability, applied to civil and infrastructure engineering. We will build your professional engineering skills over four years, focusing on innovative and sustainable solutions to civil and infrastructural engineering problems. Individual and group engineering design projects will help to demonstrate your knowledge, skills and employability, while a fourth year at master's level helps you transition from study to professional practice.

  • Benefit from strong links to industry through guest lectures and projects designed by high profile engineers
  • Access world-leading laboratories, including our flagship Geotechnical Centrifuge Facility, where you will conduct research and test theories
  • Get hands-on experience with concrete, soil and other materials testing equipment
  • Take an optional placement year to boost your employability – recent placements have included Balfour Beatty, AECOM, Arup, Interserve and Network Rail
  • Enjoy easy access to leading civil and structural engineering contractors and consultants, thanks to our central London location
  • Fast-track your progress to Chartered Engineer status, with a degree that meets all academic requirements for professional registration.
As a fully qualified civil engineer, you will plan, design and construct the infrastructure around us. Your career may see you specialising in buildings, motorways, railways, bridges, coastal protection, or energy infrastructure. Graduates from City have worked on major projects, including the HS2 rail project and the development of London landmark buildings. Our recent graduates have secured employment with organisations such as AECOM, Atkins, Building Design Consultants, London Bridge Associates, Mott MacDonald, Arup and Ramboll. As well as contracting engineering practices such as Balfour Beatty Engineering, Jacobs Engineering and Skanska. If you want to become a Chartered Engineer, with enhanced prospects and earning potential, an integrated MEng offers the most direct route. We have every expectation that these degrees will receive full accreditation from the Joint Board of Moderators (Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Institute of Highway Engineers and The Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation), providing a path for you to gain Chartered Engineering status.


You’ll develop a strong technical background for civil and infrastructure engineering. The Engineer in Society is an innovative theme across each year. We introduce you to the economic, social and technical context where engineers work, and develop your social responsibility, knowledge, and topical engineering skills. Year 1 Our shared engineering first year allows you to build a foundation in mathematics, engineering, physics, fluid mechanics, material, electronics and programming. You will take diverse engineering design projects.

Assessment method

Assessment is by coursework and examinations. Group learning and communication skills are addressed through design studies and presentations. Practical and technical skills are assessed through laboratory work, data analysis and project reports. Grades obtained in each year count towards the final degree classification, with increasing weight given to the later years.
