Civil and Structural Engineering
Civil and Structural Engineering is the conception, design, construction and maintenance of the built environment; this includes all our major buildings, transportation systems, water supply and wastewater disposal systems, and all the infrastructure associated with power generation and distribution. Our courses will therefore prepare you for a profession which creates the very fabric of our society. In addition, more Civil Engineering graduates have good-quality graduate track jobs six months after graduation than those of any other discipline (AGCAS, Graduate prospects and UCAS), and our own employment statistics are amongst the best in the country. A specialist Civil Engineering Advisory Board also helps to ensure our courses are in tune with the needs of the construction industry.
We offer a range of Civil Engineering courses from a 3 year BEng to a 5 year MEng please see the School of Engineering courses section for more details.
