what are the universities that are known for good for civil engineering courses ?Watch
This is a list of University rankings for Civil Engineering...
Seems like very few people from Oxford or Cambridge go on to work in industry. Their degrees also don't begin specialisation until the third year so if you know you want to do civil, don't get drawn in by Oxbridge as you will know less about civil.
Disclaimer this is based on my experience working in construction, so things will be different in consultancies or design offices.
It's great to hear that you're considering to study Civil Engineering at University. I'm currently a 4th year student studying towards a MEng in Civil Engineering at the University of Southampton.
If you have any questions about studying Civil Engineering or more specific questions about study Civil Engineering at the University of Southampton, I'd be more than happy to help!
When looking at university courses I'd recommend looking at the typical sort of modules offered by each university as these may differ, especially in the third and fourth years. When I was considering university courses, I preferred universities which offered environmental engineering modules.
I'd also recommend looking into whether a university course is accredited with the Institute of Civil Engineers and/or the Institute of Structural Engineers. If a course is accredited it will allow you to become chartered later in your professional career.
I'd finally recommend thinking about whether you'd like a course that offers industrial placements or has good links with industry.
All the best with future applications!
