The Course


Our integrated masters degree will give you the opportunity to specialise in sub-elements of civil engineering through a large number of optional modules aligned with our high-quality research.  These include areas such as energy and buildings, coastal and maritime engineering and dynamic modules such as earthquake engineering and architectural acoustics. Major engineering contractors and consultancies often get involved the fourth year group design projects.

The first two years will provide you with core knowledge in mechanics, structures, materials, thermofluids and construction management. The third year introduces highway and traffic engineering and will further develop your knowledge of structures and geotechnics.

You will have the opportunity to tailor your degree to your interests in your final year with your choice of specialist optional modules.

Design is an integral to all our engineering courses, you will develop key design skills that you will use throughout the course. You will have the chance to carry out individual and group design projects to create real solutions.

You can also take the Industrial Placement Year, which is an additional year-long module that allows you to apply for a placement with an engineering-based organisation. The successful placement will be recognised on your Degree Certificate.
