Civil engineering has been taught at Birmingham since 1875 (prior to the University’s inception) which means that our graduates have been shaping the future for over 135 years. Our staff and students continue to be at the forefront of the Civil Engineering industry and work on a diverse range of projects which help to solve today’s problems and those of the future.
