And how together we can collaborate with industry to make a real-world difference.
The majority of our courses are accredited by professional bodies – 17 in total – allowing you to develop both the academic and the hands-on practical experience that is so valued by employers. You have the unique opportunity to leave university with both a degree and full professional status. Our annual careers fair provides an opportunity for students to meet with major employers who are keen to promote a range of employment opportunities including work experience, industry placements and graduate schemes. According to the DLHE 2015/16 Survey*, 96.4% of our students are in work or further study following graduation.
This school is home to the Leeds Sustainability Institute and the active enterprise hub for the regional built environment sector, the Centre for Knowledge Exchange. These allow our practicing staff to continue their valued consultancy work, and allow you to participate in community and university estate projects, often linked to relevant professional sectors.
This highly research rated school has both national and international influence – the school’s CERF group (Civil Engineering Research Facility) has a live, award-winning project in Mali exploring the impact of simplified water purification in deprived and remote regions and villages.
We aim to combine technology and knowledge; creativity and community; research and reward. Being anchored in a city with such cultural, industrial, historical and entrepreneurial perspectives only adds to the relevance and accessibility of what we offer: collaborative and imaginative ways of teaching, learning and working and state-of-the-art innovation tools and facilities; together providing clear pathways to personal growth and professional employability.
