Results are finally in, and everyone is thinking about where they are going to university, or maybe asking if university is right for them. And you know what? It’s the perfect time. A lot of people may be talking about pandemics and lockdowns and recessions, but you have an amazing opportunity right now.

Because it’s all a bit crazy out there, there has never been a better time to study and enhance your knowledge and skill set. Work towards employment, which you’ll be ready for in a few years time, and skip all the drama and stress of a slow market that exists today. For postgraduates, it’s even a good time to think about going back to higher education and growing your skills and qualifications.

Why study Civil Engineering?

All of the world’s most incredible built structures are the results of Civil Engineering. The tallest buildings, the longest bridges, the largest dams, all exist because of this discipline. Even more critically, things like our water and energy systems all run off the genius of civil engineers.

Civil Engineering, in simple terms, is the engine of the world, and being qualified to work in this field can lead to world-changing opportunities. You could one day be working on the sustainable solar or hydroelectric energy project that helps fix the climate change crisis. You might be helping to build the public museum that will inspire generations of visitors.

Whichever direction, careers in Civil Engineering are diverse, challenging and often hugely rewarding. With access to well-equipped materials, hydraulics, geotechnical and structures laboratories and an extensive range of the latest surveying equipment, University of Bolton offers world class teaching and courses are professionally accredited to Incorporated Engineer (IEng) and Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
