There are many benefits of upskilling if you are a civil engineer. Designed to broaden and deepen your technical knowledge of specialised civil engineering fields, the University of Bolton’s Civil Engineering master’s course can help you take your career to the next level. Here are three important reasons to upskill now for a brighter future.
1. Upskilled civil engineers are in demand
The UK is currently facing a huge engineering skills shortage, with people across all engineering disciplines being more in-demand than ever. Civil engineering already accounts for £1.2 trillion of the UK’s annual turnover and employs 19% of the UK's workforce, and the industry continues to grow.
2. Advance your career and increase prospects
Our programme delivers a broad overview of the advanced civil engineering discipline, building on your existing knowledge through a series of stimulating modules. Touching on the issues and challenges faced within the industry, such as economic constraints, risk and ethical responsibilities, this course can prepare you for roles in leadership and management.
3. We are seeing a shift in gender diversity
For the first time ever, the UK has reached the milestone of having more than one million women working in core Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) roles. While our work is not done, there’s a clear shift in diversity and inclusivity within engineering industries, making this a great time to upskill with a master’s in Civil Engineering.
And ranking No.2 in the UK for Social Inclusion (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021), there’s nowhere better to study than the University of Bolton. There are over 60 nationalities represented on campus, so student life here is a real celebration of cultural diversity, as well as gender diversity.
We are featured in the Top 50 UK Universities in The Guardian University League Tables 2021, and students have also voted us No.1 in the North West for Student Satisfaction for the past three years (Complete University Guide in 2021, 2020 and 2019).
