About Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment.

So, whether you’re interested in making landscape gardens, or designing and constructing roads, bridges, canals, dams and towns of the future, this industry could be for you!

Civil Engineers are the people behind all of the most iconic constructions in the world: from the The Shard to the Eiffel Tower and more recently Crossrail which is currently Europe's largest construction project with the first services through central London due to start in late 2018.

Civil Engineering is your opportunity to leave an ever-lasting impression on the world!

What does it take to make these amazing buildings?
Well there are many people involved from the architects who design the buildings, the project manager through to the people who make sure equipment is in place and order the materials – this is before you even think about the people that are actually going to build it!
