Spotlight on women in engineering


"I am so proud to be an engineer in a male-dominated area," says Cagla Balaban. Find out more about our graduate, who now works for the university.

Communities and societies

Our active student-led societies offer a space for personal and academic growth, as well as new opportunities to make lasting friendships. Students can take part in activities throughout the year, both through the department and via the wider Students’ Union.

Research and partnerships

Civil engineering academics are currently researching a range of areas including road safety engineering, structural engineering, seismic analysis and design and geotechnical engineering.

Plants could reduce city noise


New research from the University of Greenwich shows that having plants on the side of walls can reduce perceived noise by about a third.
