This programme is validated by the University of Derby and aims to prepare students as graduate Civil Engineers for a successful career in the Construction field. Graduates may obtain the license to practice the profession as Incorporated Engineers (IEng) and if they continue towards postgraduate studies, they can apply for full professional rights as Chartered Engineers.


  • The School of Engineering at Mediterranean College – founded in 2005 – is the pioneer in the delivery of higher education Engineering courses in Greece.
  • The course leads to professional recognition and practice, through the UK Engineering Council, and with further studies can also lead to full professional rights in Greece (chartered engineer status).
  • The course covers the four basic civil engineering areas: Structural, Geotechnical, Hydraulic and Infrastructure, being contextualised to the Greek engineering industry (legislation issues, etc).
  • The course includes Computer Aided Design, design and project management, and also focuses on dynamics, structural analysis, reinforced concrete and steel structures.
  • Students have access to modern facilities, both at the College’s in-house workshops and at the partner organisations state-of-the art labs, to do their practical training, projects and internships.

Further Study & Career

Graduates of the programme, according to the Greek law, are holders of an accredited university degree, professionally equivalent to those awarded by Greek State Higher Education Institutions. If they wish so, they can have their degree recognised by the Greek authorities. Click here for more information on the degree recognition procedure.

Being graduates of an accredited UK University, they are eligible to apply for the Incorporated Engineer (IEng) status with the UK Engineering Council. If they continue their studies towards a Master’s degree and also secure some work experience, they will be eligible to upgrade their status into a Chartered Engineer, with full professional rights both in the UK and in Greece. See for further information.

After successfully completing the programme, graduates may continue for a Master’s degree at Mediterranean College or at overseas universities. Alternatively, they can seek employment. BEng (Hons) holders may attend the following Master’s programme offered by Mediterranean College:

  • MSc Civil Engineering and Construction

Those who wish to combine Engineering with Management and pursue higher managerial positions in the Engineering industry can opt to attend the following postgraduate courses:
