Civil construction engineers specialise in the design and construction of large projects such as high-rise apartment or office blocks. They require high-level skills in scheduling and the management of sub-contractors.
You’ll learn all the key skills you need to become a professional civil engineer, plus an understanding of human resources, finance and environmental planning and law. This includes development applications and environmental impact assessments. With cross-faculty subjects from Design, Architecture and Building, you’ll also learn the details of installing building services such as lifts, air conditioning, cabling, IT and telecommunications.
You can work in any of the areas suggested for the Civil major, plus find opportunities with:
- major developers
- private commercial developers and consultancies
- project management for construction developments
This specialisation is also ideal if you want to work as a private developer or consultant, as you’ll have all the skills you need to run an entire construction project from start to finish.
