The benefits of civil and structural engineering are all around us. Safe buildings and infrastructure not only protect us but also ensure that any adverse impact on the natural environment is minimised. Both civil and structural engineers will play a major role in addressing the current climate crisis, sustainability and environmental impact are key elements throughout all years of this degree. The difference between civil engineers and structural engineers is minor - indeed they work together in the same industry on the same often large and complex projects.
Civil engineers may focus on buildings, infrastructure, roads, railways, power supply and more, structural engineers specialise in load-bearing structures such as bridges, dams and skyscrapers - ensuring the materials used can support the design safely. Studying both disciplines make sense and gives flexibility for career choice. Civil Engineers will play a major role in addressing the current climate crisis - sustainability and environmental impact are key elements throughout all years of this degree.
Qualified civil and structural engineers are in demand across the construction sector; exciting roles are also found working for consultancies, local authorities, government departments, utility companies and environmental organisations in the UK and internationally.
