In the modern world, the physical infrastructure created by civil engineers surrounds us, impacting on our lives in many diverse ways - from bridges and buildings to water treatment and waste management. Civil engineering involves the creative and sustainable application of physics and mathematics, using engineering and computing tools to conceive, design, build and operate this built environment. Our programme covers the latest developments in core areas of civil engineering including road and rail transport, tunnels, bridges, buildings and dams and also offers many unique strengths in emerging areas including: structural fire engineering, advanced geotechnical investigation and design, use of novel and/or sustainable materials, managing the construction of mega-projects, water security, environmental impact mitigation and disaster analysis and prevention. As a result of the wide range of topics, career opportunities are hugely diverse and our graduates are in great demand. The programmes we offer allow our students to specialise in a number of technical streams including structural, environmental, construction management, geotechnical and fire safety engineering. We offer an industrial mentoring scheme that allows students to meet and interact with recent graduates working in industry and a close-knit, supportive community within which to develop your engineering skills. Engineering at Edinburgh has a long and distinguished history and enjoys a vibrant and successful present. Our graduates have a distinctive blend of technical skills, ingenuity and entrepreneurship, that can open the door to a rewarding career. All of our BEng programmes are accredited as partially satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng). An accredited programme is needed to complete the CEng educational base.
