Course description

The School of Civil and Building Engineering is 3rd in the UK for Transport courses in the Times Good University Guide 2016.

As only a small number of students take courses in this subject area, there isn't much information on what graduates do when they finish, so bear that in mind when you review any stats. Management, finance and business roles are common, but it's a good idea to ask tutors what previous graduates taking specific courses went on to do when you're at an open day.
