Course summary

Why this course?

Civil engineering develops and improves facilities and services that society needs – from the supply of clean water and energy to the design and construction of roads, railways and stations. Solving problems of air, land and water pollution and protecting society against natural disasters are also important aspects of civil engineering.

Engineering graduates are in high demand from recruiting companies worldwide.

This 18-month MSc course has been designed to meet the needs of a broad range of engineering industries. As a Masters student, you’ll gain the specialist and generic skills necessary to lead future developments, with practical experience provided by the industrial placement or project.

The course has a significant design element based on the most up-to-date specialist design guidelines. This includes a major design project that integrates acquired knowledge and acts as a platform for structured self-learning.

This course is suitable for graduates with a background in any discipline of civil engineering. Applicants with a degree in environmental engineering, earth science, mathematics, physics, and mechanical engineering may also be considered.

There are four optional specialist streams:

  • Civil Engineering with Structural Engineering & Project Management
  • Civil Engineering with Geotechnical Engineering & Project Management
  • Civil Engineering with Geoenvironmental Engineering & Project Management
  • Civil Engineering with Water Engineering & Project Management

What you’ll study

In addition to the industrial placement or Industrial Design & Construction class, you'll also take the compulsory module Research Protocols for Science & Engineering which supports the dissertation project. You also have a wide choice of optional modules. The class on Building Information Modelling (BIM) will be available as an option. Knowledge of BIM, a process for creating and managing information on a construction project across the project lifecycle, is sought after by employers.

Following successful completion of the taught component, you’ll undertake a dissertation. If you’re on one of the specialist streams you’ll undertake a research project on a topic related to that stream. The dissertation can be linked to the industrial placement and worked on together with the industrial partner.

Industrial placement or design and construction module

You'll take an industrial placement or the Industrial Design & Construction class.
