School of Engineering



Civil Engineering: MEng (Hons)

At the open day, I enjoyed the course presentation and the staff and students were very enthusiastic and helpful. The atmosphere around the city was vibrant but friendly and the size of the city suited me well.

About your course

We cover a wide variety of Civil Engineering modules which is great as you know very little to start with. As we have a lot of hours of lectures, you spend a lot of time with your course mates and make some great friends. 

Civil Engineering at Newcastle is a highly regarded degree, providing many opportunities, not only within engineering. The course is fun and diverse, and has a lot of group work which develops lots of skills.

Recommending Newcastle

Newcastle is a great city providing many opportunities for all sorts of fun. The nightlife is fantastic, and never disappoints.

Living in Newcastle

Newcastle is a city for everyone. The atmosphere in the city provides a safe and friendly environment. Newcastle accommodates everyone’s interests with a vibrant centre, strong sporting background at St James’ Park, loads of open parks through the city and the beach is only a few stops away on the Metro.

Clubs and societies

There are a huge amount of clubs and societies you can join. I have been a member of the Athletics and Cross-Country Club for the past three years. I have travelled all over the country to compete for the University, including the Olympic Stadium. Most of these trips are great fun!


This year I live in Sandyford, though I have lived in Jesmond. Finding accommodation is easy. There are so many houses to choose from and there is never a shortage. The quality of houses is very high.
