School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering

About the School

Building a better world

Our vision is to be a strong and engaged community of staff and students who are supported and motivated to tackle some of the most significant global challenges affecting the built environment and infrastructure.

A key part of our ethos is our extensive links with industry, with many of our students being sponsored by major construction organisations. Loughborough graduates are extremely sought after by industry and commerce world-wide, and our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes are consistently ranked as excellent in both student surveys and independent assessments. Similarly our research is sponsored and applied by the many organisations in the civil engineering, construction and transport sectors.

Our website provides you with extensive information about both our research and teaching programmes. For further information, please contact us, or come along to one of our regular open days.
