Overview

Civil Engineering  at Queen's University Belfast  is a broad discipline that deals with the very infrastructure of society from our bridges to our water and energy resources, and our roads. Our degree programmes are concerned with the planning, design, construction, sustainability, management and maintenance of this infrastructure. Fields of activity include structures, transportation, foundations and water engineering.

You will have the opportunity to tailor your studies according to your skills and interest after a common first year with our three complementary pathway programmes:

  • Civil Engineering 
  • Structural Engineering with Architecture 
  • Environmental and Civil Engineering

However, you choose to specialise, you’ll be tackling some of the biggest challenges of the modern world, such as achieving sustainable living in an increasingly urbanised society. As the demands on resources like water, energy and land increase, there is a strong need for qualified Civil Engineers with the relevant technical skills but who also possess an ethical awareness of the environmental impact of the projects they undertake.

Career Prospects 

On graduating with an Honours degree, students are able to choose from a range of rewarding and challenging careers in Civil Engineering and are also sought after in accountancy, commerce, education and research. The majority of graduates take up posts associated with design and construction. Some embark on management, accountancy and finance careers, while others go into teaching and research. Employment in consulting engineers' offices and in the public sector will centre on feasibility, planning and detailed design. Alternatively, work with a contracting company will provide extensive experience on site where management skills are important in addition to technical knowledge. Our engineering graduates are also to be found in many other areas of employment where the skills and discipline of evaluating facts, decision making and management have provided them with the basis for rewarding and interesting careers.

Programme Structure

Course Overview:

  • This degree is designed to provide students with a good basis for a professional career as a chartered Civil Engineer. Emphasis is placed on the practical application of theory through design and laboratory work. 
  • The degrees contain an element of modular choice, but all students are required to take modules which will equip them with the technical, management and professional skills needed for a career in civil engineering.
