Integrate architectural and engineering design to develop sustainable solutions to benefit society. Graduate as a creative designer of our built environment. Do you want to lead the design of buildings that inspire awe, have minimal environmental impact and work well for the people who use them? At Bath, we nurture imaginative engineers who care about the future of our built environment and want to contribute to a better society. We’ll teach you the art and science of the subject by immersing you in the practices of architectural and engineering design. You’ll take on difficult and realistic projects such as exploring ways to lessen the energy needed to make buildings comfortable for users. Our course draws on the strengths of a joint Department of Architecture & Civil Engineering, offering you a different experience from most universities. You’ll work with architecture students to embed the professional and interdisciplinary team relationships that will form the basis of your career. In your first two years, you’ll learn fundamental skills in creative engineering design, analysis and communication. You’ll develop a detailed understanding of mechanics, materials, environmental, geotechnical and structural engineering theory and practice. In your final years, you’ll learn to integrate structural and environmental engineering with architectural design to satisfy a range of needs including delight, stability, energy footprint and buildability. You’ll take advanced taught units on this MEng, meeting the full educational requirements you need to become a Chartered Engineer. We also offer this course with a placement year, giving you the opportunity to gain work experience as part of your degree. You can move between our civil and civil and architectural engineering courses, as well as decide whether you want to go on placement, up to the end of your second year.
