What will I learn?

Integrate structural, architectural and environmental principles to advance the creative and sustainable design of our built environment.Our course is for creative engineers who want to develop a holistic approach to designing buildings and structures. As a graduate, your imaginative approaches, ingenuity and communication skills will help you develop responsible solutions for the engineering challenges you will face.In your first two years, you will learn the foundations of materials, geotechnics, structures and digital design. Once you have developed your fundamental engineering design skills, you will then explore aspects of sustainable building and structural design in later years.Our courses draw on the strengths of a joint department with architecture, offering you a different experience from most universities. You’ll work with architecture students to prepare you for the professional relationships you'll experience in your career.At Bath, you will have the opportunity to experience studio-based projects and gain insight from industrial guest lecturers, preparing you to tackle the range of structural engineering projects you will meet in your career.For a more in-depth experience, that fully satisfies the academic base for a Chartered Engineer, consider our MEng courses in Civil Engineering or Structural and Architectural Engineering. You can move between our Civil Engineering and Structural and Architectural Engineering courses, as well as decide whether you want to go on placement, up to the end of your second year.TeachingYou’ll learn from leading academics with expertise in civil, structural and architectural engineering. Their collaborations in industry and research feed into undergraduate teaching and contribute to your learning experience. Also, visiting practice-based tutors bring their wealth of design experience to support projects and enrich teaching.FacilitiesYou’ll develop your abilities in purpose-built design studios that foster an atmosphere of creativity and collaboration. You’ll also have access to a range of laboratories to support you throughout your civil engineering studies. These include structures, hydraulics, soils and materials research laboratories. We also house specific teaching and computer laboratories, and a 3D fabrication workshop. We’ll teach you to use specialist model-making equipment such as wood and metal working machinery, 3D printers, CNC routers and laser cutters. This will enable you to realise and test your engineering solutions.CareersAs a Bath graduate, you’ll possess a high level of creative ability and excellent communication and people skills. You could go on to work as an engineering or structural designer, a site engineer or a project manager in the construction industry, where your knowledge, creativity, problem-solving and people skills are highly valued. Some of our graduates continue their studies with us or at other universities, pursuing careers in academia or research.
