Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study Sustainable Engineering Management for International Development at Swansea University - 'Welsh University of the Year 2017' (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017).
The MSc in Sustainable Engineering Management for International Development is a cross-disciplinary programme that is highly applied with both taught elements and a real project deliverable that are designed to develop practitioners who can think rapidly and flexibly, acting in the absence of complete information to support and improve the quality of life through engineering solutions.
- Developed in collaboration with College of Arts and Humanities and the Prince’s Foundation.
- Natural extension of a number of highly successful College of Engineering student mobility projects over the past few years in Zambia, Liberia and South Africa.
- Focus on “applied” sustainable engineering projects in a real life environment, with interaction with real stakeholders in an international development context.
- Students recruited as part of a team to specific projects from the outset, each with a specific role/angle on the project within broad but defined project requirements.
- Students recruited from a range of backgrounds, including STEM, International Development, Politics, Law, Business (but other areas considered) from UK/EU and Overseas.
- From day one, the project will be the focus for the students, with team development and the acquisition of the tools required for success central to delivery.
- Limited places offered on competitive basis and an interview process with stakeholders involved.
- A number of scholarship and bursary opportunities are available.
Modules on the MSc Sustainable Engineering Management for International Development course typically include:
- Introduction to Development Studies
- Leadership, Team Development and Innovative Thinking
- Complexity, Uncertainty, Risk Mitigation and Failure
- Concept Development & Application
- Project Management
- Monitoring & Impact Evaluation
- Community Engagement
- Social, Economic and Political Implications of Engineering Solutions
- Circular Economy and Sustainable Engineering
Sustainable Engineering Management for International Development course is based at the innovative Bay Campus which provides some of the best university facilities in the UK, in an outstanding location.
The Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 ranks Engineering at Swansea as 10th in the UK for the combined score in research quality across the Engineering disciplines.
The REF assesses the quality of research in the UK Higher Education sector, assuring us of the standards we strive for.
The REF shows that 94% of research produced by our academic staff is of World-Leading (4*) or Internationally Excellent (3*) quality. This has increased from 73% in the 2008 RAE.
Research pioneered at the College of Engineering harnesses the expertise of academic staff within the department. This ground-breaking multidisciplinary research informs our world-class teaching with several of our staff leaders in their fields.
This course aims to broaden your knowledge and understanding of a range of aspects of civil engineering management practice and their limitations such as risk analysis. In addition, you will develop your management skills related to working within the construction profession in particular critically analysing management and business practices applied to the field of civil engineering.

Transport Systems Engineering
Integrated Project Applications
This course has been designed for students that have a BSc/BEng and wish to undertake further studies in order to expand their horizons to management and planning aspects of built environment operations. On the other hand students from non-Civil Engineering backgrounds, who wish to register on the course, will be exposed to subject areas such as environmental and transportation engineering in order to develop expertise to Civil engineering related disciplines.
The course has a blend of technical and management related modules that combine analytical and theoretical elements, which equip the students with the qualities that will allow them to demonstrate understanding of current engineering practices. In order to achieve the above, the programme will be supported by activities that have been designed following collaboration with university partners, research centres and professional institutions”.
Finally, by the implementation of a real-life integrated project within a team-working environment the students will have the opportunity to gain experience and develop skills that will prepare them for further professional progression.Career Path
Graduates from the course will have employment opportunities under a variety of civil engineering, construction management or related disciplines.
These opportunities will arise from consultancies, government agencies, local government, contractors, financial institutions, developers.
International graduates will have employment opportunities in similar governmental authorities and civil engineering companies within their respective countries. They will also have the opportunities to work on Donor community funded project in their respective countries.
Graduates from the MSc programme will have the opportunity to further their studies to higher degrees (e.g. PhD).
Graduates from the PGCert can progress to the MSc programme if they achieve a satisfactory performance (e.g. C grade)
The MSc Civil Engineering Management is accredited for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (non-technical). This means that the programme meets the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) under the provisions of UK-SPEC for intakes 2017-2021 for candidates that have already acquired a CEng or accredited BEng (Hons) undergraduate first degree.
Our new Springfield site is a £100 million project to turn a 12 acre, Grade II listed former brewery, into an architecture and built environment super-campus.
