Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering is at the heart of all the structures we see around us today. It is the shaping of the world: the design, construction and maintenance of buildings, roads, and bridges (and railways of course).


Becoming a civil engineer in high-speed rail could see you work on anything from stations, to maintenance depots, to the route of the railway itself. You can be inside, designing or managing, or outside, getting your hands dirty! Add a desire to find the best possible solution to problems, and you’ll be in a prime position for a long and rewarding career.
