Academia. Civil and Structrual Engineering at the University of Surrey, Guildford

The University of Surrey is a medium-sized campus-based university, with over 8000 students, situated adjacent to, and within easy walking distance of, the town of Guildford, which is approximately half an hour from London by train. The university is now some 30 years old, having grown from Battersea College, and, while it retains some of its former characteristics (e.g. in relation to the practical relevance of its courses) it has come a long way in those years. Indeed, it is amongst the top cohort of institutions in terms of many of the traditional measures, such as research income and employment record. Surrey is traditionally within the top few universities for graduate employment and topped the employment league for all universities last year. Professor J.E. Harding, G.A.R. Parke, D.R.
