Program description

In the modern world, the physical infrastructure created by civil engineers surrounds us, impacting on our lives in many diverse ways - from bridges and buildings to water treatment and waste management. Civil engineering involves the creative and sustainable application of physics and mathematics, using engineering and computing tools to conceive, design, build and operate this built environment. Our programme covers the latest developments in core areas of civil engineering including road and rail transport, tunnels, bridges, buildings and dams and also offers many unique strengths in emerging areas including: structural fire engineering, advanced geotechnical investigation and design, use of novel and/or sustainable materials, and advanced numerical modelling for particulate solids and structures. As a result of the wide range of topics, career opportunities are hugely diverse and our graduates are in great demand. The programmes we offer allow our students to specialise in a number of technical streams including structural, environmental, construction management, geotechnical and fire safety engineering. We have strong industrial engagement via our Industrial Advisory Board and industrial input to teaching, including our design projects. There are opportunities for interaction with recent graduates working in industry and we offer a close-knit, supportive community within which to develop your engineering skills. All students are encouraged to undertake relevant work-experience during their degree and we work closely with the Careers Service to advertise internship opportunities and arrange company presentations. We support your development of graduate attributes via our Edinburgh Award for Civil and Environmental Engineering Industrial Placements which is recognised on your academic transcript.
