Undergraduate degrees

Civil engineering is one of the most diverse professions available. As a civil engineer, you’ll become involved in a wide range of activities, including planning, designing, constructing, maintaining, improving and managing the physical environment around us. You may help design transport systems, undertake the treatment and restoration of contaminated sites, enhance the energy efficiency of buildings, or design and construct iconic structures.

All degree courses within the School share a common first year of six compulsory modules. These expose you to the range of programmes offered within the School and provide a firm basis on which to specialise in later years – as well as giving you the flexibility to switch between these courses.

Student | Architectural Engineering MEng, BEng
The School of Civil Engineering at Leeds has great facilities which has helped me understand lecture content. My favourite so far has been the concrete laboratory in Second year. In our tutor groups we got to design, mix and test concrete.
