About the school
Building a Better World
Welcome to the School of Civil and Building Engineering at Loughborough University
The School of Civil and Building Engineering is one of the largest of its type in the UK. We aim to develop and nurture the skill required to face the challenges of our increasingly complex built environment. Our world-class teaching and research are integrated to support the technical and commercial needs of both industry and society.
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.
