The Extended Civil Engineering, BEng course from the University of Greenwich is a suite of programmes which have a common foundation year, after which students specialise in the subjects of their choice. The first year provides solid training in engineering, computing principles, science and systems modelling, as well as the necessary background and skills needed to cope with the engineering degree programme that follows.



Civil engineering is arguably one of the oldest engineering disciplines. It arose from the basic human needs for shelter, safety and warmth. The size of the challenge has grown, but the basic requirements are the same - to keep people warm, safe and secure. In addition, civil engineers now need to consider the environment and the impact that all new buildings and infrastructure development has on the world around us.

They face the demands of maintaining and updating existing assets, whilst also designing and constructing new ones. From designing state of the art sports stadia and transport hubs, to keeping houses and livelihoods safe from flood damage, to ensuring the provision of renewable safe energy sources, civil engineers have designed and built the modern world as we know it.

This degree, together with our 3000m² of specialist and integrated engineering laboratories, prepares you for all of these challenges. Civil engineering is an exciting, varied and respected profession. Civil engineers need to be resourceful, practical and resilient. Communication skills are essential and you will need to be highly numerate and literate to succeed.

This BEng Hons (Extended) degree is identical to the BEng Hons, but also includes a foundation year. It is accredited by the JBM as: (1) fully satisfying the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng); and,(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. See for further information and details of Further Learning programmes for CEng status.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To provide you with the knowledge and skills to work as a professional engineer with current and future civil engineering technologies, methods and standards
  • To support you in understanding the pioneering approaches in this field and apply them to the solution of real-world problems
  • To develop your understanding of the civil engineering industry and prepare you to gain graduate employment.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The UK government confirmed new requirements for secure English language testing for visa and immigration purposes. Learn more


Applicants should have:

160 UCAS points

FROM 2 or 3 A levels with an additional AS level (including mathematics or a physical science/numerate subject) OR a National Diploma in Engineering or relevant subject at MPP

PLUS at least three GCSEs at grade C or above (including English, mathematics and a science) or equivalent.

* Qualifications not listed above will be considered on application.

* Where appropriate you should have a minimum IELTS score of 6.0 (with a minimum of 5.5 in each skill) or an equivalent rating in another Secure English Language Test.

Language skills

If English is not your first language, you will need to provide proof of your fluency in English before you can begin a programme. The main systems for measuring this are IELTS with a minimum score of 6.0 for degree programmes or TOEFL with a minimum score of 550 for degree programmes. Recently the TOEFL computer-based test has been abolished to make way for the introduction of the Internet-based test, gradually eliminating the traditional paper-based method. Other qualifications may be satisfactory. We can tell you what is acceptable.

Admission to UK universities often requires that students have completed 13 years of formal education with recognized qualifications. International students should consider taking a Pre-Bachelor to gain access to UK universities when:

  • You are considered ineligible for admission
  • You need to improve your academic, study, research or language skills
