Welcome Week Information

Welcome to the Department of Civil Engineering and Industrial Design

Welcome from the Head of Department

Professor Ping Dong

We welcome you on behalf of the staff, and students of the Department of Civil Engineering and Industrial Design, School of Engineering at the University of Liverpool. These are exciting times for civil engineers and industrial designers as they are benefiting from the rapid advances in design thinking, construction materials and design tools and are better able to meet the twin societal challenges of economic growth and sustainability.

The department consists of two Divisions, Civil Engineering and Industrial Design and runs four UG programmes: Civil Engineering, Industrial Design, Civil and Structural Engineering and Architectural Engineering - provide students with a broad range of choices. As a research-oriented, student-centered Department our staff are leaders in a number of inter-related subject areas in built environment and design engineering. You will benefit from the world-class teaching and in-depth specialist expertise available to you.

Your Welcome Pack will help you in your first few days at the University. It contains important information about the schedule for Welcome Week, and also tells you how to contact the Student Support Centre if you have any questions. Additional information can also be found on our website. Please do not worry if it seems a lot to take in. We will work hard during Welcome Week and in the first semester to make your transition to undergraduate study as smooth as possible.

Do explore our website either to find more about the topics of your interest or to check out our facilities and staff research activities. I very much look forward to welcoming you to the Department in in September.
