Course overview Civil and Infrastructure Engineering MEng (Hons)
This course is subject to approval.
This accredited integrated master’s covers structures, geotechnics, hydraulics, and sustainability applied to civil and infrastructure engineering. Over four years, you will develop professional engineering skills, with a focus on innovative and sustainable solutions to infrastructure problems.
Individual and group engineering design projects demonstrate your expertise to future employers. Whilst a fourth year, at master’s level, helps you transition from study to professional practice.
- Benefit from exceptional industry involvement in the degree programme, including projects set by industry and guest lectures from practising engineers
- Access world leading laboratories, including our flagship Geotechnical Centrifuge Facility, where you conduct research and test your theories
- Get hands-on experience with concrete, soil and other materials testing equipment
- Take an optional placement year or placement over two summer periods to boost your employability. Recent placements have included Balfour Beatty, AECOM, Arup, Interserve and Network Rail
- Enjoy easy access to leading civil and structural engineering contractors and consultants thanks to our central London location.
- Fast track your progress to Chartered Engineer status, with a degree that meets all academic requirements for professional registration.
Our current Civil Engineering degrees are accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Institute of Highway Engineers and The Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation) providing a path for you to gain Chartered Engineering status. We have every expectation that these degrees will similarly receive full accreditation.
You’ll develop a strong technical background for civil and infrastructure engineering.

Fees and funding
Fees for year 2023/24
The tuition fees indicated are for the 2023/24 academic year only. Fees for each subsequent year of study are subject to an annual increase to take account of City's increased costs of delivering educational services. This increase will be 5% for each subsequent year of study. You should expect your fee to increase by this amount and budget accordingly.
- Fee waivers are available for this course.
- Means tested support is available for 2023/24 entry.
Future Finance offers students loans of between £2,500 and £40,000 to help cover tuition fees and living expenses. All students and courses are considered. All loans are subject to credit checks and approval for further details please visit our finance pages.
Some of our degrees may involve additional expenses which are not covered by your tuition fees. Find out more about additional expenses.
Civil engineers plan, design and construct the infrastructure around us, working on projects such as buildings, motorways, railways, bridges, coastal protection, energy infrastructure. City graduates work on some of the most important projects, including the HS2 rail project and the development of London landmark buildings.
Recent graduates have secured work with AECOM, Atkins, Building Design Consultants, London Bridge Associates, Mott MacDonald, Arup and Ramboll or contracting engineering practices such as Balfour Beatty Engineering, Jacobs Engineering and Skanska. Graduates also join companies overseas.
If you want to become a Chartered Engineer – enjoying enhanced job prospects and earning potential – an integrated MEng offers the most direct route to achieving CEng status.
How to apply
Applications for degree courses must be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).
This course is subject to approval.
This course is not currently open for applications. When the course opens, you can apply through your school or college using the Apply system, which enables you to submit your application directly to the UCAS website.
You can apply to up to five universities or institutions on the form. The UCAS code for City, University of London is C60.
Please take care to enter the correct course code when applying, particularly for subjects with a Foundation year or with BEng (Hons) and MEng (Hons) or BSc (Hons) and MSci (Hons) options.
UCAS has implemented an 'invisibility of choices' policy so that, on the initial application and while you are receiving decisions, each institution can see only their entry and not those of other institutions you have chosen.
