Communities around the globe are challenged to find effective ways to manage water throughout the water cycle restoring the water we use to continue sustaining the natural environment. At AECOM, our Water specialists work together worldwide to find innovative solutions to the management of water. We provide technical expertise and solutions for projects across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, in areas such as:
Flood Risk Management

Sustainable Drainage Systems and Water Sensitive Urban Design
Mains Infrastructure Design (Surface, Potable and Foul)
Non-Infrastructure Design (Pumping Stations, Storage Tanks)
Hydrology and Water Resources
NEC Project Management
Our Civil Engineering graduates gain valuable experience working on a variety of global projects alongside a multitude of different disciplines. Our graduates are encouraged to develop their understanding of many elements within the water industry, such as hydraulic, structural and environmental design through calculations, report writing and use of engineering software. You will work alongside our experienced engineers as you develop these skills within a positive culture where learning and development is actively supported and promoted.
An example project is the £5M Lagan Gateway project at Stranmillis, for Belfast City Council. Our team of Project Managers are leading the delivery of a new boat navigation lock adjacent to the River Lagan, construction of a new 3 span 70m long iconic “Gateway” bridge linking Stranmillis and Annadale, and improvements to the existing designated operational weir structure, providing protection from flooding in Belfast. The project forms a key element in the long term regeneration of the Lagan navigation and is the first step towards opening navigation from Belfast to Lisburn and eventually all the way to Lough Neagh.
We also support our graduates to pursue their professional development through professional organisations such as ICE or CIWEM. This is further complimented by AECOM’s Graduate Development programme, providing broader development and training and an opportunity to meet with other graduates. Key responsibilities will include:
Undertake numerical analysis including the use of computer-based programmes to assist with the study of potable, surface and wastewater systems
