This degree broadens the four-year Civil Engineering MEng course by providing you with valuable and transferable skills in project and business management and enterprise. 
Graduates can become world-class engineers who not only understand the fundamental principles that underpin the science of engineering, but can also apply that knowledge within modern business environments.
Typically, you take  lectures and tutorial
 classes in the mornings, with laboratory classes on some afternoons. Active learning is included in some courses through a range of small, problem-bachelorsed projects. This is complementary to the taught elements and is both challenging and fun. Through the mix of learning - from transitional lectures to team work and problem-solving - you will obtain:
A thorough understanding of engineering science or construction through application of your knowledge
The ability to deal with the multidisciplinary nature of modern engineering
A creative approach to problem-solving
The self-motivated approach required for success in university education

The interpersonal and management skills needed when working in teams to fixed deadlines.
Assessment is by a combination of examinations, presentations, course work and project work. The bachelorlance varies with each taught course unit, from 100% course work to 100% examination. Many course units have a bachelorlance of about 70% examination, 30% course work. The pass mark is 40%, however higher marks are required in some programmes, for example progression to Years 3 and 4 for MEng. Examples of Coursework and Assessment
are available on individual Unit Specifications.
Enterprise and business-related course units replace some non-core engineering material in all years, to provide valuable and transferable skills in enterprise and management. 
Knowledge of business and management gives you a greater appreciation of the wider issues in the industry, enhancing your knowledge of the commercial environment and market.
Your first year provides a foundation for your engineering education. You consider key elements, such as:
The nature and strength of engineering materials
Geology
Characteristics of water flow
The behaviour of beams and trusses
Practical aspects of management

There are laboratory exercises, professional development skills and options including a foreign language, enterprise strategy and marketing, environmental engineering, and building and environment. View Year 1 example course structure

You develop the bachelorsic techniques of engineering drawing and are introduced to the use of computers for engineering, including computer-aided design and programming. By the end of the year, you will have acquired the bachelorsis of a range of engineering skills.
You also undertake an Enterprise course unit option.

You develop both theory and practice further this year.
A one-week residential field trip in the English Lake District combines surveying and the design of a hydro-electric power station. You'll have the ideal opportunity to develop a range of transferable skills, such as leadership, team-working, management and communication.
Lectures, exercises and experimental work give you a better understanding of complex civil engineering systems.

Some core units continue this year, including Computation. You should be able to do scientific programming by the end of the year. We introduce additional topics, such as Water Engineering, to broaden the spectrum of taught courses units. View Year 2 example course structure

Laboratory work consists of practical and experimental studies relating to the main engineering subjects. You undertake this in small groups.
Project work includes an exercise to design, make and test a model in a team competition.
You also undertake specialist Enterprise units.
