About

The Civil Engineering programme offered by the University of Bristol addresses the global need for delivering long-term, sustainable performance of existing and new infrastructure systems. We are leaders in modelling and managing the impacts of extreme natural and human hazards, such as earthquakes, climate change, flooding, industrial processes, traffic and crowds.

Overview

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.

Careers

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.
