Architecture students

As the construction industry becomes increasingly complex and specialised, employers are very keen to find graduates with broad as well as deep knowledge and insight – which these courses equip you to do unlike anywhere else. Our past graduates from the MEng, BEng Architectural Engineering programme are now industry leaders – you will be able to follow the same path towards achievement, in architecture or engineering (or both!), with a huge range of employment choices open to you. 

Your degree from the University of Leeds and the wider experience you’ll gain whilst you’re studying will help you stand out from the crowd when securing your graduate job. 

University of Leeds students are among the top 5 most targeted by top employers according to The Graduate Market 2021, High Fliers Research.

Leeds is one of our biggest campuses for recruitment, the students are independent, resilient and fit perfectly with our vision to employ the leaders of tomorrow.
