From building bridges to maintaining transport networks, civil engineers are behind some of the most significant advancements in the way we interact and function as a society.
Engineering in its many forms already makes a significant contribution to the UK’s GDP (gross domestic product). With ambitious construction and infrastructure projects in the pipeline and a chronic housing shortage, this is only set to grow.
However an unprecedented skills shortage in the sector means that the demand for accomplished civil engineers has reached critical levels.
This course is ideal for graduates of an engineering discipline who want to develop their existing knowledge across a range of specialist subject areas.
Your experience and expertise will be in high demand. And if you choose to professionally register as a chartered engineer on graduation, you’ll boost your career prospects and earning potential as well as your status within the industry.
