There are routes into a career in civil engineering for both university graduates and school leavers. To find out about how you can get into this career via a school leaver route (eg. an apprenticeship or school leaver training program) see the construction and property sector of TARGETcareers, our website aimed at school leavers, and particularly our article on civil and structural engineering careers.
Graduates will need a degree in civil engineering accredited by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE). You are then expected to work towards one of two professionally recognized qualifications with the ICE. If you have completed a BEng, you can gain an incorporated engineer (IEng) status.
