Undergraduate Programmes

Our students learn through a range of teaching and learning events including lectures, clinics or problem classes, tutorials, labs, exams, project work, site visits, field trips and project-based Challenges and Scenarios. We run a number of residential field trips, such as Lampeter and Constructionarium, these are often the highlights of the first and second years student experience.

The engineering courses cover all the major fields of civil engineering (structures, geotechnics, fluids, design, transport studies, surveying and materials) with residential field trips throughout. Students will choose a minor engineering subject topic from a broad range offered, including aerospace, environmental engineering, sustainable building design, programming and finance.

Both the BEng & MEng in Engineering undergraduate programmes are accredited by The Joint Board of Moderators. More information on accreditation of the MEng in Engineering & Architectural Design can be found on the course page.



MEng Accredited CEng (Full)
This degree is accredited as fully satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng).
BEng Accredited CEng (Partial)
This degree is accredited as:
1.  partially satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng). A  programme of accredited further learning (for example, MSc Civil Engineering) is required to complete the educational base for CEng.
2.  fully satisfying the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng).
A large proportion of teaching and learning is done through projects, so that our students have the opportunity to put their engineering skills into practice during their studies. Our programmes place particular emphasis on people and the environment, because Civil Engineers design and construct projects which ultimately impact on people and our environment. In addition to developing our students theoretical and technical skills and design abilities, we also focus on communication, management, team working and other skills needed to be a successful Engineer.
Our students are taught by a team of academic staff and teaching fellows from around the world, who are leading researchers in their field or specialists in teaching. Professional engineers from leading engineering firms in London and the UK also teach on our degrees. All students have a personal tutor, and they meet regularly to help them in their learning and discuss any problems the students may have.

The department also offers a scholarship in each session. Visit our scholarships page to find out more.
While we endeavour to keep this programme information as up to date as possible, the course contents may change annually as part of our ongoing programme review process.

Students who wish to find out more about Civil Engineering should download the "Engineering in Society" handbook by the Royal Academy of Engineers.

Industrial Collaboration
We have teamed up with AKT-II (www.akt-uk.com) to provide us with industry expertise in the latest design techniques and civil engineering tools used in leading structural engineering consultancies. Our industrial design collaborators contribute and input into the teaching throughout our undergraduate degree at UCL. Ensuring our graduates leave with the required knowledge and skill sets to succeed as a civil engineer.
If you have any questions or queries, you can direct them all to the admissions team at cege-ug-admissions@ucl.ac.uk or call us on +44 (0)20 7679 7726. Please refrain from emailing other members of staff with admissions queries.
