Civil Engineering work placements

Gain the best start to your graduate career by opting for a one-year work placement while you study.

Our civil engineering courses come with an option to undertake a placement year out in the industry which gives you head start on your CV and paves the way for your future career.

Your civil engineering placement will reinforce our teaching and your practical learning experience on the course. You’ll learn to work in teams, communicate at different levels and work collaboratively on projects with industry professionals within a given timeline.

As well as utilising the skills from your course, you’ll gain an insight into the professional environment and develop transferable skills such as communication, presentation and negotiation to use in any career.

A dedicated placement tutor from Brunel’s Professional Development Centre will support you right from when you start building your CV, attending interviews and until you complete your placement.
