Undergraduate degrees

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.

Exceptional student experience

You’ll join a friendly, supportive and diverse community of students and researchers who come from all over the world. You’ll be guided through your course by your personal tutor who’ll provide academic and pastoral support. Our student support team in the School helps with anything from academic advice to timetabling and project submission enquiries.

We achieved 91% overall student satisfaction for civil engineering in the National Student Survey 2021 and ranked 1st in the Russell Group.
