What is Civil & Structural Engineering?
As a civil engineer you can literally change the world; developing bridges, tunnels, structures and sustainable buildings, providing water supplies, controlling pollution or responding to natural disasters.
Civil Engineering deals with design, construction and maintenance of the world around us including roads, bridges, canals, dams, buildings, man-made and natural environments.
Structural Engineering focuses on buildings, the materials used to create them and how they can be made safer and more sustainable.
Geotechnical Engineering explores the behaviour of Earth’s materials and how soil and rock can support systems including tunnels, retaining structures and offshore wind farms.
Water Engineering specializes in water based projects from the development and maintenance of water supplies, to exploring sustainable solutions for cleaner water.
Architectural Engineering is about the engineering of buildings, including heat transfer and airflow. An awareness of architecture means you understand buildings holistically and can communicate effectively with everyone involved in the design and construction process.
