How to use this guide

A civil engineering degree is the foundation for a huge range of potential careers.
You might have already mapped out your future after university and know exactly what you want to do when you graduate. But if you do not, this guide will help.

The guide has been designed to give quick and simple answers to the questions that will come up as you start considering what you are going to do when you finish your course: things like "Where should I go to earn the most money?" and "Can I specialise in a specific area of engineering?"

In this section of you will find advice on understanding what kind of job might be best for you, how to go about finding work and what you should do now to make sure you get the job you want when you graduate. At the back are profiles of some of the leading employers of civil engineering graduates, which should give you a picture of what is on offer and help you make the right decision. Throughout the guide you will find details of where to go for more information and how to apply for a job.
