Everything we do in our daily lives is touched by civil engineering. It’s an essential pillar of modern society — and we can’t live without it.
Our civil engineering courses start with a foundation in theory, combined with an industry focus.
You’ll not only learn the technical and management skills required to plan, design, construct and maintain infrastructure — your civil engineering degree will teach you how to apply that knowledge within a wide range of organisations.
No matter the project — building dams, designing water supply systems, constructing transport infrastructure networks, or anything else — you’ll be equipped to help create the (literal) foundations of our society.
