Mae'n bosibl y bydd cyfleoedd i fyfyrwyr ymchwil uwch roi tiwtorialau a seminarau i fyfyrwyr israddedig. Mae cyllideb (£200 y flwyddyn ar hyn o bryd) ar gael i chi fynd i gynadleddau y tu allan i Abertawe.
Mae graddau MA drwy Ymchwil fel arfer yn para am gyfnod o un flwyddyn (astudio'n llawn amser) neu ddwy flynedd (astudio'n rhan-amser).
Mae'r cwrs MA drwy Ymchwil yn ddelfrydol ar gyfer y rheini sy'n dymuno cael:
cymhwyster MA mewn meysydd arbenigol lle nad yw rhaglenni a addysgir yn cael eu cynnig;
profiad o gwrs gradd ymchwil heb orfod ymrwymo i gwrs PhD.
Gwahoddir cynigion ymchwil ar unrhyw bwnc y gall staff ddarparu goruchwyliaeth ar ei gyfer.

The University of Bath Civil Engineering: Innovative Structural Materials MSc is a full-time, one-year taught postgraduate course.
Students study a range of modules before carrying out an individual research dissertation project in order to complete their Master of Science degree.
The course produces graduates with an in-depth and practical understanding of the use of innovative structural engineering materials in the provision of sustainable and holistic construction solutions for the built environment.
The use of construction materials is key to infrastructural development globally. New approaches are now needed for innovative renewable and low carbon structural engineering materials.
This MSc course will not only help prepare you for an exciting career in the industry, but it will also help prepare you to continue your studies onto a Doctor of Philosophy research programme.
The course is aimed at engineering and science graduates who wish to work in the construction industry.
As a student you will be provided with the practical knowledge and tools to support you in the use of innovative structural engineering materials in the context of sustainable and holistic construction. You will also learn how to harness that knowledge in a business environment. You will gain analytical and team working skills to enable you to deal with the open-ended problems typical of structural engineering practice.
The MSc is based on research expertise of the BRE Centre for Innovative Construction Materials (http://www.bath.ac.uk/ace/research/cicm/) and 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. Please visit the Joint Board of Moderators (http://www.jbm.org.uk/) for further information about accreditation.
The course includes traditionally taught subject-specific units and business and group-orientated modular work. These offer you the chance to gain experience in design, project management and creativity, while working with students from other subjects.
Group project work:
In semester 2 you undertake a cross-disciplinary group activity for your professional development, simulating a typical industrial work situation.
Individual project work:
In the final semester, you undertake an individual research project directly related to key current research at the University, often commissioned by industry.
A full list of units can be found on the programme catalogue (http://www.bath.ac.uk/catalogues/2015-2016/ar/ar-proglist-pg.html#AC).
Semester 1 (October-January)
The first semester provides a foundation in the most significant issues relating to the sustainable use of innovative structural engineering materials in design and construction; and involves units in natural building materials, advanced timber engineering, advanced composites, sustainable concrete technology and architectural structures.
- Five taught compulsory units
- Includes coursework involving laboratory or small project sessions.
- Typically each unit consists of 22 hours of lectures and 11 hours of tutorials, and may additionally involve a number of hours of laboratory activity and field trips with approximately 65-70 hours of private study (report writing, laboratory results processing and revision for examinations).
Semester 2 (February-May)
Semester 2 consists of a further 30 credits comprising of five core 6 credit units. These units include:
- Materials engineering in construction
- Advanced timber engineering
- Engineering project management.
Students will undertake a group-based design activity and an individual project scoping and planning unit (Project Unit 1). The group-based activity involves application of project management techniques and provides the basis for an integrated approach to Engineering, but with the possibility of specialising in the chosen master's topic.
It is a feature of this programme that the project work proceeds as far as possible in a way typical of best industrial practice. The Semester 2 project activities have significant planning elements including the definition of milestones and deliverables according to a time-scale, defined by the student in consultation with his/her academic supervisor and (where appropriate) his/her industrial advisor.
Summer/Dissertation Period (June-September)
Individual project leading to MSc dissertation.
Depending on the chosen area of interest, the individual project may involve theoretical and/or experimental activities; for both such activities students can use the department computer suites and well-equipped and newly refurbished laboratories for experimental work. The individual projects are generally carried out under the supervision of a member of academic staff.
There may be an opportunity for some projects to be carried out with the Building Research Establishment (BRE).
- Advanced structures
- Advanced composites in construction
- Advanced timber engineering
- Materials engineering in construction
- Natural building materials
- Sustainable concrete technology
The Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering brings together the related disciplines of Architecture and Civil Engineering. It has an interdisciplinary approach to research, encompassing the fields of Architectural History and Theory, Architectural and Structural Conservation, Lightweight Structures, Hydraulics and Earthquake Engineering and Dynamics.
Our Department was ranked equal first in the Research Excellence Framework 2014 for its research submission in the Architecture, Built Environment and Planning unit of assessment.
Half of our research achieved the top 4* rating, the highest percentage awarded to any submission; and an impressive 90% of our research was rated as either 4* or 3* (world leading/ internationally excellent in terms of originality, significance and rigour).
The dominant philosophy in the joint Department is to develop postgraduate programmes and engage in research where integration between the disciplines is likely to be most valuable. Research is carried out in collaboration with other departments in the University, particularly Management, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, and Psychology.
