Course summary

A brand new, one of its kind qualification for those seeking specialist skills in the design and construction of temporary works.

Who is it for?

This MSc degree is aimed at graduates with at least two years of practical experience in construction; however, more recent graduates with a good appreciation of construction processes will also benefit.

Having achieved a firm grounding in engineering you may be keen to develop your skills as a practical engineer working on site or enhance design skills if you are engaged in permanent works design.

Objectives:

The course provides the following:

  • An introduction to statutory obligations, management methods and special design considerations for temporary works;
  • Design of structures used in and for temporary works, their construction and monitoring;
  • Design of geotechnical temporary works and processes, including groundwater control and ground investigation;
  • Design of temporary works for marine construction, in particular floating structures and the effect of waves and varying water levels;
  • The use of plant in temporary works and the provision of appropriate working platforms and access;
  • Demolition and alteration of structures, including the disposal/reuse of construction waste.

Accreditation:

Accreditation by the Joint Board of Moderators (The Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation and the Institute of Highways Engineers):

This degree is accredited as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired a partial CEng accredited undergraduate first degree. See the JBM website for further information

The accreditation report commended the MSc for addressing an area which is important in the construction industry but which does not often receive attention in existing degree programmes. It also identifies as examples of good practice the support from the Temporary Works Forum and the number of visiting lecturers who have committed to contribute to the programme.

Career prospects:

Temporary works are an important aspect of most construction projects. Consequently, a qualification in this field will have widespread application across all civil engineering disciplines, whether you are working as an on-site engineer or as a design office engineer. You could also go into the research arena conducting innovative research in the area of temporary works.
