Integrate structural, architectural and environmental principles to advance the creative and sustainable design of our built environment. Our course is for creative engineers who want to develop a holistic approach to designing buildings and structures. As a graduate, your imaginative approaches, ingenuity and communication skills will help you develop responsible solutions for the engineering challenges you will face. In your first two years, you will learn the foundations of materials, geotechnics, structures and digital design. Once you have developed your fundamental engineering design skills, you will then explore aspects of sustainable building and structural design in later years. Our courses draw on the strengths of a joint department with architecture, offering you a different experience from most universities. You’ll work with architecture students on some projects to prepare you for the professional relationships you'll experience in your career. At Bath, you will have the opportunity to experience studio-based projects and gain insight from industrial guest lecturers, preparing you to tackle the range of structural engineering projects you will meet in your career. Learn from experts in the field You’ll learn from leading academics with expertise in civil, structural and architectural engineering. Their collaborations in industry and research feed into undergraduate teaching and contribute to your learning experience. Also, visiting practice-based tutors bring their wealth of design experience to support projects and enrich teaching. Use specialist facilities You’ll develop your abilities in purpose-built design studios that foster an atmosphere of creativity and collaboration. You’ll also have access to a range of laboratories to support you throughout your civil engineering studies. These include structures, hydraulics, soils and materials research laboratories. We also house specific teaching and computer laboratories, and a 3D fabrication workshop. We’ll teach you to use specialist model-making equipment such as wood and metal working machinery, 3D printers, CNC routers and laser cutters. This will enable you to realise and test your engineering solutions. Start your future here As a Bath graduate, you’ll possess a high level of creative ability and excellent communication and people skills. You could go on to work as an engineering or structural designer, a site engineer or a project manager in the construction industry, where your knowledge, creativity, problem-solving and people skills are highly valued. Some of our graduates continue their studies with us or at other universities, pursuing careers in academia or research.

Points of entry
The following entry points are available for this course:
- Year 1
Open University credits Typical offer Pass units worth 120 credits including a minimum of a Pass 2 with 80% in a relevant Level 2 Mathematics unit worth at least 30 credits. Typically, we would be looking for you to have studied units worth at least 120 credits including at least 30 credits at Level 2 in Mathematics. Units in Physics are recommended but not essential. We would ideally be looking for you to be taking units including MST124: Essential Mathematics 1 and MST224: Mathematical Methods. This information is a guide and we consider students applying with Open University Credits on a case-by-case basis. We will consider your application carefully and take note of any previous qualifications or relevant work experience. We may be able to consider alternative units to those listed. Please contact us to discuss your profile. Taking OU credits may be counted as degree-level study by the Student Loans Company and therefore may be counted as previous study and have an impact on your ability to access student loans for the entirety of your chosen degree. We recommend that you discuss this in detail with the SLC before following this progression route to the University of Bath. GCSE requirements GCSE English Language or Literature grade 4 or C (or equivalent from English language category C)
