You can do a foundation degree, higher national diploma or degree in civil engineering.
Many universities specialise in particular areas of civil engineering, like:
- structural engineering
- environmental engineering
- coastal engineering
Some courses include a work placement, which can be useful for making industry contacts to help find work after you finish your studies.
You can apply for a postgraduate master's award in civil engineering if you've got a related degree like maths, science or geology.
You'll usually need:
- 2 or 3 A levels, or equivalent, including maths and a science for a degree
- a degree in a relevant subject for postgraduate study
