Welcome to Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering is the key to many of the issues affecting our lives today. Civil engineers solve problems, design, build and maintain our living and working spaces. You might design a new stadium, work on a local by-pass or railway line, assess a damaged structure, provide immediate and safe drinking water to a refugee camp, or manage a multi-million pound construction project.



Our distinguished research is clustered around the two over-arching themes of Transport Engineering and Sustainability and Resilience.

We are a supportive research environment where PhD students and world-leading researchers work side by side towards in support of our research objectives.
