Our application studies range from complete national and regional systems (such as national hydrological models, water systems, electricity and transport networks) through individual artefacts (such as nuclear facilities, offshore wind farms, underground services, dams, long-span bridges and buildings), down to local scale buckling models of reinforcing bars in concrete or mechanical characterisation of small-scale soil elements.
We collaborate widely with academic and industrial partners from across the engineering, science and social science disciplines, and from around the world.
Applicants should contact a potential academic adviser to discuss available projects before submitting an application.
Graduates of the Civil Engineering programme offered by the University of Bristol are found in a variety of careers, including world-leading research. Many also work as consultants or as part of large-scale engineering industries.
