What do Civil Engineers do?
Civil engineers are creative individuals who enjoy problem solving and contributing to the built environment around us.
As a civil engineer, you could be working on a vast amount of projects, making a real impact in communities and beyond.
You could be responsible for planning, designing and overseeing the construction of large-scale buildings and our roads and railways systems, airport, bridges and harbours, as well as tall buildings like the Shard in London and large structures built to withstand any weather condition.
Civil engineers also work on projects that have huge environmental benefits such as waste and water management, and buildings and venues that may surprise you. For example, the third largest stadium in the UK, the Emirates stadium, and Blackpool’s ICON rollercoaster which is the most interactive rollercoaster in the world.
