Subject

Civil engineering

Develop practical and technical skills to design and build structures and infrastructure. Use integrated and creative solutions to engineer a sustainable future.

Our course is for inquisitive engineers who want to answer the difficult questions about the future of civil engineering. You'll want to push the boundaries of design and construction to generate new ideas and possibilities.

In your first two years, you’ll learn fundamental engineering skills in design and management. You'll gain a detailed understanding of mechanics, geotechnical and structural engineering theory and analysis. You'll use the ingenuity and communication skills that are essential in the challenging environment of civil engineering design.

Group work with architecture students will give you a taster of the professional team relationships you'll experience in your future career. This will help you to develop the imaginative approaches and people skills that are just as important in the wide range of civil engineering projects that don't involve architects. Working in interdisciplinary teams will teach you how to find creative and well-rounded solutions to civil engineering challenges.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Do you want to be in demand? This might be the degree for you! We are officially short of civil engineers, and so around two thirds of civil engineering graduates start jobs specifically as civil engineers, and starting salaries are well over £25k last year. Demand for civil engineers and related jobs - we're short of all of them - means that good graduates have plenty of options directly related to their degree when they graduate. This is a subject where work experience can be very helpful in getting a job and many students do work for engineering companies while they take their degrees.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.

This information is from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

You can use this to get an idea of who you might share a lecture with and how they progressed in this subject, here. It's also worth comparing typical A-level subjects and grades students achieved with the current course entry requirements; similarities or differences here could indicate how flexible (or not) a university might be.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
