Opportunities for engineering in the building sector

London’s ever-changing skyline means that demand for building engineers to design and develop more complex and sustainable building systems has never been greater and this trend is set to increase. Therefore the employment opportunities for engineers are continually growing.

From The Shard to Battersea Power Station, taking in the regeneration of Elephant & Castle and Nine Elms, there are swathes of new developments that will require a large number of engineering professionals over the coming decades.
