The industrialisation of China is occurring at a rapid rate. To accommodate this unprecedented process, China is building massive new infrastructures, industrial and residential properties each year. At the same time, the natural environment is seriously polluted and the energy demand has also increased sharply.

Growth has to be delivered by suitably qualified graduates who understand the multi-interdisciplinary issues concerned and are able to apply their academic knowledge to providing more environment friendly and energy saving infrastructures and properties. The Department of Civil Engineering aims to deliver those graduates.

The Department is one of Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University newer departments and has already attracted a healthy number of academically talented students at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The department aims to be internationally recognised as a first class and dynamic department, highly committed to research, teaching and learning excellence with an aspiration to develop into leading research-driven education provider for sustainable development in civil engineering.

The department currently has 10 full scholarships as part of the Talent Selection Programme for students studying the Masters in Sustainable Construction.

The department is holding the 2nd International Conference on Sustainable Buildings and Structures (ICSBS 2019) this year.

Industrial Advisory Board

The department has established an Industrial Advisory Board together with representatives of companies in the civil engineering industry as part of strategic objectives to enhance the student learning experience and meet the requirements of employers and professional bodies.
