Research Excellence Framework 2014

Civil engineers help to create and protect the world we live in. Driven by teaching and research excellence, we inspire and empower our students to engineer a better future.

Want to tackle the bigger problems?

We’ve teamed up with the Department of Geography to launch our Urban Engineering & Development course, which aims to produce engineers with a deeper understanding of the increasingly complex challenges that exist in our ever-changing world. We’re going beyond buildings and infrastructure, and concentrating on issues on a global-scale.
