Course summary

Introduction

Develop your engineering expertise in line with the ever-changing demands of this highly-regarded and rewarding profession.

From building bridges to maintaining transport networks, civil engineers are behind some of the most significant advancements in the way we interact and function as a society.

Engineering in its many forms already makes a significant contribution to the UK's GDP (gross domestic product). With ambitious construction and infrastructure projects in the pipeline and a chronic housing shortage, this is only set to grow.

However an unprecedented skills shortage in the sector means that the demand for accomplished civil engineers has reached critical levels.

This course is ideal for graduates of an engineering discipline who want to develop their existing knowledge across a range of specialist subject areas.

Your experience and expertise will be in high demand. And if you choose to professionally register as a chartered engineer on graduation, you'll boost your career prospects and earning potential as well as your status within the industry.

Why study this course?

This master's will equip you with advanced capabilities and in-depth knowledge across a range of civil engineering disciplines - from materials and structures, to geotechnics, water and construction management.

You'll develop and apply the analytical, decision-making and critical thinking skills needed to excel in the field, and enhance your knowledge in vital areas including mechanics, geotechnics and bridge engineering.

You'll explore issues of global importance in civil engineering and management, and investigate trends in the engineering and construction sectors.

Careers / Further study

This course enables you to achieve Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. A highly-regarded qualification, it demonstrates to peers and employers that you have proved your competence and commitment through several years' study and practice.

The demand for graduates with this qualification gives you a competitive place in the jobs market, as well as diverse career prospects.

From managing building projects as a construction engineer, to planning mass transit systems as a transport engineer, you'll find a range of career options are available to you both in the UK and overseas.
