Shaping the World - Civil engineering undergraduate project

A real life global challenge for MEng civil engineering students to solve.

This is an opportunity for MEng civil engineering undergraduates working in teams to come up with sustainable solutions to global challenges caused by population increases in Africa.

Completion of the project counts towards your final degree assessment and has already been adopted by some key UK universities.

Its purpose is to encourage students to think how civil engineering can help achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

It has been developed with ICE by Dr Terry Thomas of Warwick University.
