Why choose a career in Civil Engineering?

Civil Engineering is everything you see that’s been built around us.

It’s about roads and railways, schools, offices, hospitals, water and power supply and much more.  The kind of things we take for granted but would find life very hard to live without.

A career in South Lanarkshire Council’s Roads and Transportation Services offers an interesting and varied choice comprising a number of professional engineering disciplines such as;

What is the Graduate Apprenticeship in Civil  Engineering?

What will you learn?

The course has been developed by the university in partnership with employers to ensure it meets industry needs.  This is reinforced through significant work based learning which involves a 4 year blended study period with approximately 1/5th of your time spend at university and remainder in the workplace.  The apprenticeship will develop your civil engineering skills and experience in a number of disciplines including structures, construction materials, geotechnics and project management.
