  • The construction sector builds, maintains and renews the places where we work, live and play.
  • Its projects fall into the following categories: new housing; industrial (for example factories); infrastructure; and commercial (such as schools, universities, offices, places of entertainment).
  • It’s a hugely diverse industry with opportunities for students of all STEM disciplines, and students and graduates are often given the chance to get involved in high-profile work from day one.
  • Construction companies on Gradcracker have been involved in projects such as the Olympic Park, The Shard, HS2 and St. Pancras Station.
