A career for everyone

Welcome to NCE’s latest guide for undergraduates on how to get a job in civil engineering, says Antony Oliver

As you will see, it is specifically designed to help you to understand the range and variety of careers and employers out there in the civil engineering industry. I hope it demonstrates to you that there are more options than you may have thought and inspires you to really seek out the career you desire.

Once again NCE has worked with the Institution of Civil Engineers and with key employers in the industry to ensure that this publication brings you the most up-to-date and relevant information to guide your career planning. But remember, please use the numerous website addresses and telephone contacts detailed in the publication to find out more.

Civil engineering and the built environment is vital to the economy of the UK. Whether you want to help prepare London and the South East for the 2012 Olympics, continue the rebirth of the railways, revamp the nation’s aged water supply and treatment infrastructure, tackle the growing energy supply and waste management problems or create a new sustainable environment for the next generation, there is a career for you. I hope that this publication helps you find what you want.
