Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment. Civil Engineers are not only responsible for the building of infrastructures that we depend on every day, they also have to keep them running effectively and adapt to meet challenges, such as population growth, climate change and natural disasters.

If you are a creative and inquisitive person with a technical mind who enjoys a challenge, and you have a desire to enhance communities and people’s lives, then Civil Engineering is right for you.

Our degrees have both theoretical and practical elements to give you a challenging yet hands-on learning experience, such as designing, building and testing structures to failure, eventually moving on to bigger and more complex examples like aeroplane hangars, bridges and skyscrapers.

Because Civil Engineering is involved in so much, our graduates are highly desirable in many different sectors because of their knowledge and familiarity with the technology and environment of the clients they will work with, giving them an advantage in the working world.

Civil Engineering is Accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators
