Program Description

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, Singapore, 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.

The UK Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE), the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM), US Bureau of Labour Statistics, United Nations (UN) and various international organisations have reported a high skill shortage in environmental engineering throughout the developed and developing world to respond to the increasing climate, demographic (urbanisation), socio-economic and environmental changes.

This civil and environmental engineering course is aimed at students who aspire to become professionally qualified engineers. If you wish to study civil engineering in the UK or abroad with an emphasis on environmental engineering, then this may be the course for you.

During your studies, you should gain an insight into the full breadth of design and construction disciplines that collaborate in the multi-disciplinary construction industry.
