Civil engineering is the technical foundation of our modern world. To give a few examples, the structure of your house was designed by civil engineers, just as were the drains and the water mains. Thanks to civil engineers you can ride your bike to school on a road with a smooth and stable surface and the school too exists thanks to civil engineering.

Studying Civil Engineering means helping to build the future. Civil engineers not only make the world safe, liveable and accessible, but also ensure that a country remains safe, liveable and accessible as the climate changes and the economy makes new demands.

Companies are eager to employ civil engineers! Moreover, all kinds of consultancy firms and even banks give preference to an engineer. So it’s no surprise that right now there is a shortage of engineers and that this will increase even more in the coming years. So once you have completed your civil engineering studies your job opportunities are good.
