Course summary

This programme is designed for civil engineering graduates and graduates with related degrees wishing to study a general Masters-level course rather than specialise in one subject area. You can tailor your studies to meet the needs of your chosen career path by selecting from a wide range of modules.

Being flexible in its nature, this Civil Engineering MSc/PG Diploma permits you to tailor the programme of studies to suit your own chosen career, benefiting from the range of specialist modules available to all MSc students.

Flexibility also means that graduates of non-civil engineering disciplines may be eligible for study. Please enquire if this applies in your particular case and we will make an assessment based on previous study and experience.

The taught element of your course takes place between September and May, and your individual research project will be undertaken from May to September. You can transfer from the Postgraduate Diploma to the MSc programme, upon completion of the Diploma, provided you satisfy the MSc requirements.

You will develop a broad knowledge base and understanding of the civil engineering profession and acquire problem-solving, team working, and communication skills; all essential when dealing with complex issues in this multi-disciplinary profession. Our graduates enjoy worldwide careers in consultancy, contracting industry, or choose a career which is underpinned by a good understanding of civil engineering.

Accredited degree

The course is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (Institution of Structural Engineers, Institution of Civil Engineers, Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation, Institute of Highway Engineers).

Employability

Upon graduation, you can choose to begin or resume a career in civil engineering design consultancies, general management/engineering consultancies, civil engineering contractors, construction and structural engineering companies.
