Find a programme


The BEng Civil Engineering programme prepares graduates for a career in civil engineering, as well as giving them quantitative and other transferable skills that may be applied in a wide variety of industries. The programme is uniquely positioned to take advantage of China’s economic transformation and unprecedented urbanisation to educate technical professionals that have an international outlook and that can meet the industrial development requirements of the next century. Students will be introduced to both the theory and practice of design and construction.

Graduates of this programme, as with all XJTLU undergraduate programmes, will earn two degrees: an XJTLU degree from the Chinese Ministry of Education and a globally recognised degree from the University of Liverpool, a member of the Russell Group of leading UK universities.

BEng Civil Engineering graduates are typically employed as graduate trainees within major civil engineering consultancies, contracting organisations or utility companies. Some will use their analytical, communication, management, business and IT skills to pursue a career outside the engineering profession. The programme also provides a sound basis for further graduate study in the field of civil engineering.
