If you are creative, enjoy design and aspire to improve the built environment we live in, then civil engineering is for you. This degree will equip you to find solutions to environmental problems and to design large and unique structures, such as buildings, bridges, dams and coastal defences.
Our exchange programmes are a great opportunity to broaden your view of the world and experience a different culture. The Study in Continental Europe course provides you with the opportunity to spend your third year at one of our European partner universities. You will take language units during years one and two to prepare. While abroad, you will study a range of civil engineering topics according to a personalised study plan that mirrors the third-year curriculum at Bristol.
At Bristol, you will have access to our world-class experimental facilities, including the largest earthquake simulator in the UK. In the 2017 National Student Survey, our department scored ninety-five per cent for student satisfaction, demonstrating our commitment to students.
We equip you with the skills needed to become a future leader in civil engineering. Our graduates are highly sought after by top employers, including civil engineering consultancies, utility companies, the army, and petroleum, public transport, power generation and supply companies.
