UCL (University College London)

Course Introduction

Our multidisciplinary department has a long tradition of excellence and innovation in research and teaching. We hold the largest EPSRC research portfolio in civil engineering and our diverse range of programmes covering all major and most advanced areas of civil, environmental and geomatic engineering are accredited by professional engineering bodies (ICE, CIWEM, IHO, RICS). Students benefit from our extensive links to world-leading industry in London and directly engage with research to tackle global challenges. Our graduates go on to make the world a better place as researchers, entrepreneurs, civil engineers, planners, and policymakers. Our recent graduate data suggest that 40% of our graduates took up postdoctoral fellowships or lectureships at UCL or other universities after graduation. Engineering consultancy firms are the second most popular destination (30%), followed by policy-making organisations, such as central governments, and the United Nations (20%). In addition, there have been a number of graduates who pursued careers as entrepreneurs.
