What will I learn?

Those who study the Masters in Civil Engineering will gain advanced knowledge and associated analytical and problem-solving skills in a range of key sub-disciplines of Civil Engineering, and develop the ability to apply this knowledge in engineering design and to the solution of open-ended and multi-disciplinary problems. The MSc in Civil Engineering is intended for students with a first degree in Civil Engineering or a closely related discipline who wish to extend their expertise to a higher level in preparation for a professional career.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • The MSc Civil Engineering is accredited in the “Further Learning” category accredited by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE), the Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE) and the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT). This means that a student with an accredited BEng undergraduate degree can take the accredited "Further Learning" MSc to top-up their academic qualifications in order to meet the full academic requirements for conferral of the title of Chartered Engineer. This is an alternative route to the 5-year undergraduate MEng route.
  • You will select courses from key sub-disciplines of civil engineering, notably structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering, computational mechanics and transportation engineering.
  • With all lecture courses selected from sets of options, you can choose to develop a degree of specialisation in a given sub-discipline or to remain broad-based, thus tailoring the programme to suit your interests and career aspirations.
  • Two major design project courses will develop your abilities to apply your knowledge of civil engineering to the design of engineering projects. One of these projects is specifically civil engineering in content. The other is multi-disciplinary in nature and will involve working in teams with MSc students from other engineering disciplines to tackle a broad-based design problem.
  • You will also undertake an individual project, allowing you to investigate a specific topic in considerable depth.
  • You will be taught by staff who are leading researchers in their fields, so that course content can reflect state-of-the-art understanding, relevant to future challenges for civil engineering industry and the profession.
  • The programme is designed to provide the advanced education required of the civil engineers of tomorrow.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Career opportunities include positions in civil engineering, structural engineering and environmental engineering, and working with design consultants, contractors and public authorities or utilities.

Graduates of this programme have gone on to positions in companies such as VINCI and Atkins.
