The United Nations predicts a global population of 9.8 billion by 2050. Consequently, construction professionals are increasingly being called upon to create and maintain the social and commercial infrastructure needed to accommodate such large-scale growth.
Therefore, the demand for civil engineers is high in the foreseeable future. In recent years, the demand for civil and structural engineers had continued to rise, particularly in countries such as Australia, Saudi Arabia, New Zealand and China. Construction targets aim to reduce cost, deliver faster, reduce emissions and improve exports, all of which rely on a successful infrastructure both in the UK and elsewhere.
This civil engineering course is aimed at students who aspire to become professionally qualified engineers, wishing to study civil engineering with an emphasis on engineering practice and its role within construction. We aim to give you an insight into the full breadth of design and construction disciplines that collaborate in the multi-disciplinary construction industry. The course usually benefits from the practical experience brought to the course by part-time students working in industry, who also study the course.
