Civil and environmental engineering

Civil engineers design, build and maintain the physical world around us. They ensure we’re supplied with electricity, clean water and energy, and keep us moving with roads, bridges and airports. Become a civil engineer and you’ll be advancing and protecting the very fabric of modern society.
