Civil Engineering


The BEng Civil Engineering programme provides a theoretically comprehensive and industry-oriented learning experience to ensure that you graduate prepared for a successful career in this dynamic field.

Civil engineers contribute significantly to the development of society by planning, designing, constructing and managing infrastructure. The construction of buildings, bridges, roads, tunnels, ports, harbours, drainage systems and water treatment plants are all carried out by civil engineers.

Upon graduation you will have fully satisfied the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng) in the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) in the United Kingdom, and partially satisfied the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng).

Why should I study Civil Engineering at XJTLU?

  • Graduate from a programme accredited by Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) in the United Kingdom, enabling you to become a world-recognised chartered engineer
  • Gain hands-on experience through site visits, fieldwork, workshops led by industry professionals, lab experiments, and the use of computer analysis software and the latest technologies
  • Choose to enroll in the optional exchange programme at the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom for Year Three of your studies
  • Learn from international academic staff who will provide you with an outstanding learning experience and opportunities to work on current research projects and papers
  • 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 (Hons) Accredited CEng (Partial)

This degree is accredited as:

1. fully satisfying the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng).
2. partially satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng). A programme of accredited Further Learning will be required to complete the educational base for CEng.
