The Department of Civil Engineering has full accreditation for all its programmes from the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM), making it the first Sino-British university in China offering JBM-accredited programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate degree levels.

JBM has extended the accreditation to the BEng Civil Engineering and BEng Architectural Engineering programmes as partly satisfying the academic base for a chartered engineer and as fully satisfying the academic base for an incorporated engineer, under the provisions of UK-SPEC, for 2018 - 2023 intakes.

The accreditation has also been extended to the MSc Sustainable Construction and MSc Civil Engineering programmes as technical programmes to cover 2018 - 2023 intakes.

Students who complete both an accredited BEng (Hons) degree plus accredited further learning to masters level will automatically fulfill the educational requirements for the Engineering Council UK’s register of chartered engineers without the need for additional academic assessment. Accreditation of the degree programmes offered at XJTLU also means that the University can apply to the Engineering Council for the EUR-ACE Label for these programmes, providing very broad recognition of the high quality educational standards in the civil engineering discipline.
