Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering lies at the heart of our built environment – from roads, railways, tunnel and bridges to buildings, reservoirs, ports and much more. Civil Engineers play a fundamental role in designing, constructing and maintaining the infrastructure upon which we all rely and have a key responsibility for providing sustainable solutions to the challenges facing society, addressing issues such as the climate emergency, net zero carbon target, extreme weather and natural disasters in general.

If you are a creative and inquisitive person with a technical mind who enjoys a challenge and want to play an active role in enhancing communities and people’s lives, then Civil Engineering is right for you.

Our degrees provide students with a balanced education, where fundamental principles of engineering science are blended with practical elements of design and construction management. The practical aspects are largely delivered by means of realistic projects in close collaboration with practising engineers from industry. This combination of skills gives our graduates an advantage, making them highly desirable in different sectors of the industry.
