University features in film celebrating Plymouth’s engineering prowess
“Plymouth is a really interesting place to study civil engineering, with lots of new developments going on.”
“From a course point of view, the University has a strong link to industry, which a lot of universities don’t have when it comes to civil engineering. At nearly every company I’ve worked with or had interactions with, I’ve nearly always found a University of Plymouth graduate. They want to help you because they know where you’ve been. The city has a lot of strengths, not just its university. You can’t beat chilling out on the Hoe, or Dartmoor.”

Vision for a new engineering building
This landmark building will be situated next to Babbage and will provide a new home for engineering in Plymouth, providing the environment and foundations for our teaching and research into the next decade.
“This new building will offer a state-of-the-art setting to inspire the engineers of tomorrow, giving us the ultimate place to bring together students, academics and industry in an environment that not only benefits them but also society as a whole.” Professor Deborah Greaves OBE, Head of school.
