Course summary

Overview

Our civil and environmental engineering course is designed to give you a better understanding of the relationship between civil engineering and current environmental issues.

We will help you to advance your analytical skills in core subject areas, including structural analysis, sustainability, geotechnics and hydraulics. You will learn to use modern IT techniques to solve complex problems throughout this course.

This course has been designed in close consultation with industry and is accredited as a designated technical MSc degree by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM). The JBM is made up of the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation, and the Institute of Highway Engineers. This course is also accredited by the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES) and successful completion satisfies the academic requirements for chartered status.

Course detail

In addition to studying key civil engineering disciplines at an advanced level, you will cover the broader aspects of project and process management as they relate to the sector.

There will be several opportunities to design solutions to civil engineering problems, both in groups and individually.

At the end of your course, your dissertation will allow you to conduct postgraduate-level research, this time on a particular area of civil and environmental engineering, structural engineering or construction management.

Throughout your studies, you will have access to a dedicated computing laboratory. In addition, the University library is rich in resources that support the academic and professional elements of this course.

You will also have access to a range of digital resources, including the specialist simulation packages ANSYS, ETABS, SAFE and LUSAS.

The School of Computing and Engineering is a research-based school and we pride ourselves on offering a supportive environment for our students. Your tutors and dissertation supervisor are experts in their respective fields and will do all they can to help you reach your potential.

This course has multiple accreditations from professional bodies, including the:

  • Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE)
  • The Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation (CIHT)
  • Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES)
  • The Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE).

Extended Masters

If you have completed an undergraduate degree and not met the entry criteria for this course, you may qualify for our Extended MSc Civil and Environmental Engineering option. This includes two additional modules that prepare you for the regular Masters course. You must study for your Extended Masters full-time. English language support is available.

Internship

You can also take this course with a six-month internship with an employer during your studies. There are opportunities throughout the civil and construction industry within the UK. On the internship you will be able to improve existing skills and acquire new ones, explore various career opportunities, network and be part of a team. This will improve your understanding of the world of work and professional practice in the workplace. It will also enhance your career prospects, allowing you to focus on your potential career path.

Study & career progression

Once you graduate you could go on to work with:

  • consulting civil engineering companies
  • structural engineering firms
  • contractors
  • local/national government
  • utility companies.

Alternatively, you may want to explore a related area of study.
