About

A Civil Engineer helps to make some of the most innovative structures in the world - the infrastructure for transport, energy, industry and commerce is the result of civil engineering.

Site visits are organised throughout the Environmental Civil Engineering (Hons) programme of Glasgow Caledonian University and have recently included the M74 motorway extension, the White Cart flood prevention scheme, new Forth Crossing and Whitelee Wind Farm. You may also attend a five-day study trip to Europe, linked to one of our Erasmus university partners.

Your Career
