Course summary

The Civil Engineering Graduate Diploma is a conversion programme enabling applicants with a degree in a related subject (for example mathematics, physics or geology) to take a qualifying year before moving on to a Civil or Structural Engineering MSc degree. By studying this programme, you have a unique opportunity to be awarded an accredited level 7 Civil Engineering MSc after just two years of study, opening up your career path to becoming a chartered civil engineer. This bespoke programme provides grounding in fluids, materials, soils and structures that are essential to any career as a Civil Engineer. The modules are taken from our second and third year BEng/MEng Engineering (Civil) programmes. In addition to the taught modules, you will work in pairs on a civil engineering research project.

Careers

Civil engineering graduates are readily employed by consultancies, construction companies and government departments. Students who complete both this pre-qualifying year and a Civil Engineering MSc or Earthquake Engineering and Disaster Management MSc, have excellent career prospects with leading civil and structural engineering companies.

Employability

The are excellent employment prospects for our graduates. There is international demand for multi-skilled, solutions-focused professionals who can take a holistic approach to solving problems.

Accreditation

This pre-qualifying year is recognised by the JBM, and offers a unique opportunity to become a Chartered Engineer once you have completed an accredited MSc (i.e. UCL’s Civil Engineering or Earthquake Engineering with Disaster Management MScs). At the start of the programme your application will be sent to the JBM for assessment by the Individual Case Committee to ensure your academic background is suitable for Chartership.
