Undergraduate

We aim to produce world-leading engineers with both the skills to make the world better, and the technical ability to design complex civil engineering solutions with people and the environment in mind.

Undergraduate teaching at the UCL Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering (CEGE) embraces the full range of civil engineering, from structural design and soil mechanics to earthquakes, transport, environmental and systems engineering. At the end of our undergraduate degree programmes, you will have the technical ability and understanding to make the world better.

Our civil engineering undergraduate programmes are flexible, so you can build a degree to suit the type of civil engineer you wish to be. With the opportunity to specialise in a range of subjects and disciplines from across UCL Engineering, via the IEP Minor (for both BEng and MEng students), and advanced optional modules in the final year of our MEng programme, you get the exciting chance to customise your studies with us, plus learn with peers from other UCL Engineering departments.

UCL is ranked 8th in the QS World University Rankings 2020.

Both our BEng and MEng Engineering (Civil) programmes are part of the IEP, or Integrated Engineering Programme, teaching framework. Find out more by visiting the IEP webpage. 

If you study Engineering (Civil) MEng with us, you will have the opportunity to take part in the UCL Study Abroad programmespending your third year at one of our partner institutions in Asia, Europe, North America or Australia. 

Students looking to combine the study of engineering with architecture may be interested in our Engineering and Architectural Design MEng, a four-year integrated Master’s degree, taught in collaboration with The Bartlett School of Architecture and the Institute of Environmental Design and Engineering. 

This programme challenges students to develop robust knowledge and experience of architectural, environmental and structural design and engineering in buildings. Please note, The Bartlett School of Architecture is the home department for this programme.

Engineering (Civil) BEng

Our BEng offers a unique curriculum constructed around a series of multidisciplinary group projects, which focus on real-world engineering problems.

Engineering (Civil) MEng

Our four year MEng programme builds on the knowledge and skills taught in the BEng, whilst also offering a final year design project and advanced modules. It is a direct route to Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
