  • Description

    Civil engineers create, improve and protect the environment in which we live. They plan, design and oversee construction and maintenance of building structures and infrastructure, such as roads, railways, airports, bridges, harbours, dams, irrigation projects, power plants, and water and sewerage systems. They also design and build tall buildings and large structures that can withstand all weather conditions.
    Generally, civil engineers fall into two types: consulting engineers and contracting engineers. Consultants are responsible for the design work of projects and work predominantly in an office. Contractors then take the designs and implement them during construction. Contractors work on site, managing the construction of the structure.
    Depending on whether you are a contractor or a consultant, work activities can include:
    undertaking technical and feasibility studies including site investigations
    using a range of computer software for developing detailed designs
    undertaking complex calculations
    liaising with clients and a variety of professionals including architects and subcontractors
    compiling job specs and supervising tendering procedures
    resolving design and development problems
    managing budgets and project resources
    scheduling material and equipment purchases and deliveries
    making sure the project complies with legal requirements, especially health and safety
    assessing the sustainability and environmental impact of projects
    ensuring projects run smoothly and structures are completed within budget and on time
    Working hours for consulting civil engineers are generally normal office hours, with some extra hours and weekend work close to project deadlines. Contractors, on the other hand, often work shifts and weekends and are outside in all weathers.
    Typical employers of civil engineers
    Construction companies (both consultants and contractors)
    Local authorities and government departments
    Rail companies
    Utility companies
    Civil engineers often specialise in a particular types of project or discipline, such as coastal/marine, power, water and transport. Find out more about the key disciplines and specialisms within civil engineering here. Graduates will often apply directly to a scheme in one of these areas.
    Qualifications and training required
    There are routes into a career in civil engineering for both university graduates and school leavers. To find out about how you can get into this career via a school leaver route (eg an apprenticeship or school leaver training programme) see the construction and property sector of TARGETcareers, our website aimed at school leavers, and particularly our article on civil and structural engineering careers.
    Graduates will need a degree in civil engineering accredited by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE). You are then expected to work towards one of two professionally recognised qualifications with the ICE. If you have completed a BEng, you can gain an incorporated engineer (IEng) status. If you completed either an MEng or a BEng plus a masters, you can acquire chartered engineer (CEng) status. Both titles will help career prospects, but chartered engineers are often more sought after by employers. For more information, see our article on achieving chartered status.
    If you are applying for a graduate role within civil engineering, it will greatly help your career prospects if you have gained work experience during a year-in-industry or summer placement. Some employers offer sponsorship and a job offer to students who have impressed them during work experience.
