Subject

Civil engineering

This course is designed to provide the educational base to become professionally recognised as a chartered engineer. The course covers the breadth of civil engineering including the mainstream subjects such as Structural Analysis and Design, Hydraulics, Geotechnics, and Materials, as well as the underpinning mathematics, and specialist subjects such as Sustainabilty, Environmental Engineering, and Structural Fire Engineering. The course is structured to provide a BEng(Hons) award after three years, with the opportunity to progress to the fourth year and obtain an MEng award. An optional Sandich placement year is included between levels 5 and 6. The Master’s year will provide greater breadth, and a more in-depth understanding of the subject. This programme is offered in partnership with the world-renowned BRE, giving you access to specialist facilities, projects and lectures.

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.

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?
