Our fully accredited courses will give you the skills to tackle global environmental challenges, from providing safe drinking water and renewable energy to developing disaster-resilient and sustainable infrastructure. You will learn how to design large and unique structures such as buildings, bridges, dams and coastal defenses.
Bristol offers research-led teaching to shape the next generation of engineers. Our consistent ranking among the top Civil Engineering departments in the country (third in the 2019 Guardian University League Tables, seventh in the 2019 Complete University Guide) and our high scores for student satisfaction (ninety per cent in the 2018 National Student Survey) demonstrate our commitment to both outstanding teaching and research.
We will equip you to become a leader by sharing the latest innovations from leading international researchers and professional institutions. In your learning you will use our state-of-the-art geotechnical, structural and water engineering laboratory facilities. You will develop your technical, project management and interpersonal skills and be encouraged to think creatively and innovatively, thus enhancing your employability.
Through our dedicated Industrial Liaison Office, you will benefit from industrial mentoring and internship schemes, allowing you to develop practical engineering experience in design offices and on construction sites. Our graduates are highly sought after by top employers, including civil engineering consultants and contractors, utility companies, local authorities, the army and other large engineering industries such as petroleum, public transport, power generation and supply companies.
