The MSc Civil Engineering prepares students for the highest level of achievement in Civil Engineering and beyond. It provides a broad coverage of the State-of-the-Art in contemporary Civil Engineering research and practice, equipping graduates with the skills needed to succeed in the contemporary marketplace.

What's covered in the course?

The course covers a range of topics that define contemporary Civil Engineering practice and prepares students for the challenges of tomorrow. Emphasis is paid on key areas such as Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, and Hydrology and Water Engineering. As graduates are expected to develop their careers in leading roles in the industry, construction and project management aspects are also covered. Finally, the defining issues of 21st century Civil Engineering, sustainability and engineering for extreme climate events, are given particular prominence throughout the course.

The MSc Civil Engineering is primarily aimed at candidates with an educational and/or professional background in Civil Engineering, such as a BEng or BSc in Civil Engineering or an associated discipline. In addition, candidates with an educational background in other engineering or science fields, architecture, or construction will be considered, subject to an entrance exam and/or interview.

The teaching staff are all highly experienced academics, with internationally recognised research profiles and/or substantial industry experience. The course is supported by guest speakers from leading consultants & contractors, local government, professional bodies, and research institutions. We are able to draw on Birmingham’s privileged position as a construction hub and the major building and infrastructure projects taking place in the area, to provide hands-on knowledge and experience.

Student Jobs on Campus ensures that our students are given a first opportunity to fill many part-time temporary positions within the University. This allows you to work while you study with us, fitting the job around your course commitments. By taking part in the scheme, you will gain valuable experiences and employability skills, enhancing your prospects in the job market.
