With a practical, design-led focus running throughout the programme, you'll work in our specialist labs, using industry-standard equipment and techniques to gain real-world experience. This is supported by our industry links and team of world-class researchers.

You'll develop an in-depth knowledge of all five civil engineering disciplines, with the opportunity to specialise in environmental, geotechnical, transport, or water resource engineering in your final year.
