Course summary

If you are interested in creating the structures that support life’s basic needs for good quality internal living environments, hospitals, recreation and places to work, shop and relax, the MEng in Civil and Structural Engineering degree is the ideal programme. Civil and structural engineers design, plan and manage civil and environmental projects from concept to realisation, considering structural problems and aesthetics as well as the environmental and economic impacts. To succeed in this exciting profession, you will need to be competent technically, practical in outlook and capable of giving professional advice on a variety of subjects ranging from design to construction and site management. The MEng in Civil and Structural Engineering gives you plenty of opportunities to apply your studies to real world situations, supported by employers from industry who provide case studies and suggestions for projects and the year-long work placement should you take this option. What is an integrated master’s (MEng) programme? The MEng in Civil and Structural Engineering is an integrated master's degree. This means that it combines undergraduate and postgraduate study into a single course. What are the benefits of completing an MEng degree?

  • You will graduate with a Master’s level degree without having to apply for an MSc course
  • You will gain a depth of specialist knowledge and experience highly sought after by employers
  • You will be able to undertake the Initial Professional Development (on-the-job training) required to become a Chartered Engineer as soon as you graduate
  • You will enjoy excellent career prospects and expect to command higher salaries than graduates with a BEng
What financial support is available to MEng students? You will be eligible to apply for the same financial support as other undergraduates for the duration of your MEng. This includes student loans to cover your tuition fees and living expenses plus means-tested grants and bursaries. This financial support is not available to students who enrol on an MSc degree after completing a BEng programme. Furthermore, if you are awarded an LJMU scholarship – worth £1,000 or £10,000 – you will receive this award for every year of your degree as well. Why study civil engineering at LJMU?
