This Civil Engineering programme offered at the  University College London (UCL) aims to equip students with the skills of analysis and design necessary for employment as professional civil engineers, and give them a solid academic background for becoming chartered engineers. 


The  Civil Engineering programme offered at the University College London (UCL) combines traditional lectures with group projects and an individual research project in the student's chosen specialist field. 

Students develop advanced knowledge of civil engineering and associated engineering and scientific disciplines (such as structural dynamics, sustainable building design, transport, fluids, geotechnics, water and drainage, environmental and coastal engineering, planning and construction). 

They gain awareness of the context in which engineering operates, in terms of design, construction and the environment, alongside transferable skills, which leads to careers in industry and research.


There are excellent employment prospects for our graduates. Civil Engineering graduates are readily employed by consultancies, construction companies and government departments.
