Civil engineering is shaping the built environment that surrounds us every day. Roads, railways, hospitals, offices, schools, infrastructure, water and power supply – we depend on civil engineers to design and manage the projects that improve the world we live in and protect the natural environment. This accredited degree develops civil engineers who actively contribute to sustainable and economic growth whilst maintaining the highest ethical standards and delivering the infrastructure we all rely on in everyday life. At Leeds, sustainable development is integrated into teaching and learning throughout the degree. You'll focus on design and engineering projects which minimise society’s impact on the environment, reduce the temporary borrowing of finite materials and resources, while maximising societal benefit. You’ll also develop and fine-tune theoretical and practical abilities and learn to solve problems using analytical, technical and decision-making skills – all attributes sought after by employers in industry. This is a practical course, so you’ll also have access to excellent laboratory facilities and a design studio, as well as extensive library facilities and computing equipment, including industry-standard software such as Revit (Building Information Modelling), IES (dynamic thermal modelling) and Robot (structural analysis). Our impressive laboratory facilities include specialist facilities for structures, materials, public health engineering, building services and geotechnics – everything you need to get started on your career as a chartered civil engineer. Qualified civil engineers are in demand across the construction sector. Exciting roles are also found working for consultancies, transport organisations, local authorities, government departments, utility companies and environmental organisations in the UK and internationally.r.
