Summary: Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with designing, constructing and maintaining the physical and naturally built environment. Put simply, civil engineers build bridges, tunnels, canals, dams and flood protection measures, tall buildings and other large structures. Course details: The next few decades promise to be among the most challenging ever for the civil engineering community. Progressive urbanisation, increasing populations, ongoing economic development, climate change and the persistent risk of extreme events already present many threats to infrastructure. This programme produces industry-ready graduates. It incorporates key aspects of civil engineering such as structures, geotechnics, fluid mechanics, materials and construction management. We have accessible, professional lecturers and have combined an employability-focused curriculum with manageable group sizes to give you one of the best student experiences available. After the course: Typical roles include construction project management, building/civil engineering for contractors or consultants, architectural practices, local authorities or government agencies. Our recent graduates have been employed by Arup, Birse Civils, Jacobs, WSP Group, Interserve, Atkins Global and Aker Solutions. Disaster management graduates seek work in aid and advisory agencies, local and national government organisations, and the civil and military services. 9 out of 10 of our civil engineering graduates were in work or further study within six months from completing their course (DLHE 2014/15).
