Why Should I Study Civil Engineering?

Civil engineers shape the world we live in. They design, build and maintain the infrastructure we take for granted - every reservoir, dam, bridge, road, tunnel and building. Their expertise is key for a sustainable future, both in the UK and abroad.

What will I Learn??

If you study civil engineering at undergraduate level, you’ll learn to apply mathematics and scientific knowledge (particularly physics) to real-life situations and problems that arise from creating and maintaining structures, taking into account environmental, financial, legal and ethical considerations.

At its core, civil engineering is a combination of many scientific specialisms, including mechanics, hydraulics, geotechnics (using knowledge of the earth’s crust to solve construction problems), material science and statistical analysis. As such, study of these foundational elements will feature heavily in the early years of civil engineering degrees.

Ready to Join?

Employment of civil engineers is projected to grow by 11 percent over the next ten years, faster than the average for all occupations.

Career Opportunities

A career after civil engineering is highly rewarding. There are jobs that involve supervision, construction, design and analyzes of private as well as public projects, such as dams, highways, canals, water sewages and bridges. The profession demands excellent skills for both administration and supervision of projects. Excellence and responsibility are important factors associated with the job. In other words, whenever you see or read about any popular landmark in the world (iconic works like Golden Gate Bridge, The Gateway of India, Burj Khalifa, etc.), there is a civil engineer involved in its construction. Isn’t it interesting!
