Course Description

The main areas and principles of civil engineering are introduced in the first and second years. More advanced subjects are included in later years, together with optional modules. You will undertake a range of activities, including field courses, group-based design work, laboratory work, CAD work and individual projects in your second and third years. Assessment at the end of each semester combines coursework, examinations, laboratory work and projects. Progression through each course is based on an annual appraisal covering all modules from the preceding year. In the fourth year of the MEng, you will be able to choose from a range of optional modules and undertake an individual design project. You will also complete a group design project, designing and planning a civil engineering project that aims to integrate all the disciplines covered on the course. Typical projects include highway schemes, retail parks, residential complex development and water works.

MEng

In the fourth year of the MEng, you will be able to choose from a wide range of optional modules and undertake an individual design project. You will also complete a group design project, designing and planning a civil engineering project that aims to integrate all the disciplines covered on the course.

Entry Requirements

Our Foundation course route

Our Foundation courses give you another way to study for an undergraduate degree. 

Entry requirements
A Level BBB, including mathematics and physics, excluding general studies
IB Diploma  30 points, including 5 points in mathematics (Higher Level) and 5 points in physics (Higher Level).
STPM  B+B+B+, including mathematics and physics, excluding Pengajian Am
UEC  2 As including mathematics and physics, and grade B3 in 3 further academic subjects, excluding Bahasa Malaysia and Chinese language.
SAM/AUSMAT  ATAR 86 including mathematics and physics.
Canadian (CIMP/ICPU) 88% average based on 6 subjects, including mathematics and science subjects (consideration to be made based on relevant subjects)
College Placement Test (US Style Curriculum)

Minimum final GPA of 3.0 (out of 4) in High School Diploma with grade A in mathematics and grade B in physics and chemistry plus, a score of 1200 in SATr plus, 650, 650 in SAT Subject Tests and at least 4 (in AP Calculus) or 4, 4, 4 in Advanced Placement Tests. Students taking group B subjects may be made an offer across more than three subjects at Advanced Placement level.

SAT Subject Test must include physics. SAT Subject Tests in mathematics at level 1 or 2 are not acceptable instead students need AP calculus. AP Physics must be a combination of Physics C plus either Physics 1 or Physics 2

Advance Placement (AP) Applicants who are taking Advanced Placement Tests in addition to another recognised qualification (not US style curriculum), may be considered on a case-by-case basis without the SATr and SAT Subject Tests
Diploma - Other Institutions Acceptance to the second year is on a case by case basis (and at the discretion of the School) but normally would require an overall GPA of 3.33 (out of 4) or 75% and above (consideration to be made based on relevant subjects), and previous studies must meet the prerequisite requirements to the programme
Foundation - Other Institutions  Acceptance is at the discretion of the School but normally would require an overall GPA of 3.33 (out of 4) or 75% and above (consideration to be made based on relevant subjects), and previous studies must meet the prerequisite requirements to the programme
The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus Foundation Successful completion of the Foundation in Engineering programme with no failed modules

We strongly encourage all interested students to apply. Our students come to us with a diverse range of qualifications and we also consider applicants' personal statement, references and interview performance (if you have one) when making a decision. The only way for us to fully determine eligibility is through the submission of a completed application.
