As a civil engineer you’ll help create the built environment around us.
Bridges, airports, highways, buildings and railways present their own problems and challenges and need efficient and effective engineering solutions.
You'll learn the fundamentals of civil engineering and develop skills in structural analysis, transport systems, ground engineering, water resource management and transport planning.
Putting these skills into practice on a work placement you'll gain industry insights from site visits, a week-long survey camp, an overseas field trip and input from engineering companies.
