Course summary

Course overview

Our MSc programmes are ideal if you are a graduate or professional in the civil engineering, structural engineering or construction sector and want to deepen and broaden your technical knowledge and understanding of specialised areas. This course adds an advanced practice module to our one-year master’s and is an opportunity to enhance your qualification by an internship, research or study abroad experience.

You enhance your technical skills in various core areas of civil engineering, such as advanced structural design, advanced geotechnics, and water and waste water treatment processes. You also further develop your conceptual understanding of critical aspects of structural engineering, such as advanced structural analysis and design, and become familiar with complex analysis and design techniques, modelling the causes and solutions of problems involving the real behaviour of structures. You acquire an advanced knowledge and understanding of the design of structures under dynamic and earthquake conditions. Advanced project planning and visualisation methods, such as building information modelling, are also integrated into the course. The dissertation is an opportunity to conduct a supervised research project, developing original knowledge in a specific area of civil or structural engineering.

There are three routes you can select from to gain a postgraduate master’s award:• MSc Civil and Structural Engineering – one year full time• MSc Civil and Structural Engineering – two years part time• MSc Civil and Structural Engineering (with Advanced Practice) – two years full time The two-year master’s degree with advanced practice enhances your qualification by adding a vocational or research based internship to the one-year master’s programme. A vocational internship is a great way to gain work experience and give your CV a competitive edge. A research internship provides you with the opportunity to develop your analytical, team-working, research and academic skills by working alongside a research team in an academic setting. We guarantee a research internship, but cannot guarantee a vocational internship. We will, however, provide you with practical support and advice on how to find and secure your own vocational internship position should you prefer this type of internship.

How you are assessed:

Assessment varies from module to module. It may include in-course assignments, design exercises, technical reports, presentations or formal examinations. For your MSc project you prepare a dissertation.

Your Advanced Practice module is assessed by an individual written reflective report (3,000 words) together with a study or workplace log, where appropriate, and through a poster presentation.

Career opportunities:

The course equips you with the relevant technical and transferrable skills to pursue a career as a civil or structural engineer or technical manager with leading multidisciplinary consultancies or contractors, as well as research and government organisations.
