Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering

Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering

Civil Engineering was one of the founding degrees at Queen’s, making it one of the oldest in the UK and Ireland. However, it remains one of the most sought-after careers with the potential to solve the challenges facing modern society. It is a broad discipline that deals with the very infrastructure of society from our bridges to our water and energy resources, and our roads.

Our degree programmes are concerned with the planning, design, construction, sustainability, management and maintenance of this infrastructure. Fields of activity include structures, transportation, foundations and water engineering.

Discovery Sessions

  • Civil Engineering: Mini Lecture: Meccano Bridge

    This mini lecture gives you an insight into the Meccano Bridge Module. Within this module students are tasked with designing and creating a range of objects and coming up with solutions.

  • Civil Engineering: Introduction to Design in Civil Engineering Industry and Stage 1 Bridge Building Exercise

  • Civil Engineering: Survey Field Camp

    This talk takes you through the Level I Civil Engineering Surveying Camp which takes place at the end of the second term every year in Ballintoy. The camp provides students with an opportunity to revise their surveying skills, while getting further hand-on experience with the use of surveying equipment. Students analyse the data they collect to come up with designs for real-world type assignments, including calculations of volumes of soil to be excavated and laying out the route of a highway.
