Overview

The United Nations predicts a global population of 9.8 billion by 2050. Consequently, construction professionals are increasingly being called upon to create and maintain the social and commercial infrastructure needed to accommodate such large-scale growth.
Therefore, the demand for civil engineers is high in the foreseeable future. In recent years, the demand for civil and structural engineers had continued to rise, particularly in countries such as Australia, Saudi Arabia, New Zealand and China. Construction targets aim to reduce cost, deliver faster, reduce emissions and improve exports, all of which rely on a successful infrastructure both in the UK and elsewhere.

This civil engineering course is aimed at students who aspire to become professionally qualified engineers, wishing to study civil engineering with an emphasis on engineering practice and its role within construction. You will gain an insight into the full breadth of design and construction disciplines that collaborate in the multi-disciplinary construction industry. The course usually benefits from the practical experience brought to the course by part-time students working in industry, who also study the course.

Career opportunities

The School of Energy, Construction and Environment has a dedicated academic whose role is to co-ordinate placements and employment. The faculty’s employability and placements team facilitate students in securing placement opportunities.

This team also run a number of timetabled sessions on CV writing, interview techniques etc. and students can also book one-to-one support sessions. The University also has a central careers service that focus more on supporting students in securing graduate roles as required.

Course Directors invite speakers in from industry to discuss recruitment and, when available, they take students on free to attend visits to Civil Engineering companies looking to recruit. They also regularly advertise any opportunities they are made aware of (through the EEC Futures team or industry contacts) on the student portal. Alumni are also invited back to give presentations on their graduate experience and give students guidance on learning and career development. There is a careers service where qualified consultants are available to help students think about the issues they face as they move through University studies and prepare for employment. Other career support includes mentoring by invited practising engineers, talks by professional institutions and alumni, career development visits to companies and site visits.
