The impact of Information Systems on everyday life continually expands at a monumental rate. Computing is increasingly embedded in everything we use from; transport, financial and telecommunications systems to everyday personal items such as toothbrushes and running shoes. The pervasive nature of computing coupled with the ever increasing demand for improved products and services drives the discovery of innovative solutions through the use of information systems. This has led to a critical dependence emerging between computing and practically all industries.

Graduates and engineers who are able to fully exploit the potential that computing and information systems offer within a range industries including, Retail, Manufacturing, Health, and Communications; are highly sought after. If you are looking to further your employment options in your current industry, but have little or no technical experience, then this programme is for you.

* This programme is suited to students from a non-IT background or with little prior technical experience who want to further enhance or or change career focus, to widen employment opportunities in a vast selection of computing related industries and sectors.
* Designed for non-IT professionals who want to develop a firm technical foundation in the latest industry relevant programming languages and software development techniqus (agile, which can open up more technical and senior level positions in their current industry.
* Guided by academics with an extensive spectrum of industrial experience, the programme introduces you to the core aspects of computing and allows you to choose from a variety of optional specialist modules, such as Mobile Devices and Social Networks, Business Technology Strategy and Graphical User Interface design, developing both your practical and theoretical skills.
* The core modules introduce aspects of computing, including a double module in object-oriented programming (using Java) and a double module in information systems.
* These core modules are supplemented by optional specialist modules covering a broad range of subjects relevant to the software industry, such as Network Planning, Finance and Management, Entrepreneurship in Information Technology and Decision and Risk.
* Your project work will typically involve the design and implementation of a significant piece of software within your chosen specialism. Projects undertaken for external organisations focusing on an industrial or commercial application encouraged.
* You will learn about and develop extensive technical knowledge of the latest developments in new languages and tools for web systems (XML, Advanced databases, Semantic web).
* This intensive one year programme is aimed at students without a background in Computer Science � it is a conversion course for those who want a career in computing.

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.

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 MSc in Civil Engineering with Industrial Placement 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.

The MSc in Civil Engineering with Industrial Placement has three optional specialist streams:
- Structural Engineering & Project Management
- Geotechnical Engineering & Project Management
- Geoenvironmental Engineering & Project Management

See the website https://www.strath.ac.uk/courses/postgraduatetaught/civilengineeringwithindustrialplacement/

Industrial placement

A wide range of companies, such as AECOM, ATKINS, CAPITA, CH2M HILL and ClimateXChange (Scotland’s Centre of Expertise on Climate Change), are offering placements exclusively for this MSc. A full list of companies can be provided upon request. The 8 to 12 weeks industrial placement will take place in the period from June to September.

You’ll study

You'll take the compulsory module Civil Engineering Design Projects. This module gives you the opportunity to work on real projects. You can choose between a renewable energy project or an industrial project.

Direction will be available from a supervisory team and you will have the opportunity to benefit from the School’s research expertise in a broad range of conservation and cultural heritage areas.

Strong links exist with the Colleges of Science and Arts, and an interdisciplinary research culture can facilitate collaboration with colleagues across a wide range of topics.

Current doctoral research topics include:
-How can architectural paint research and analysis enhance the conservation-restoration and historiography of cultural built heritage in the UK?
-Regarding mediocrity: conservation, interpretation and presentation of the Doddington Hall tapestries.
-Biodeterioration of limestone: role of microbial biofilms and possible intervention strategies (in collaboration with Dr Ronald Dixon, School of Life Sciences).
-Nineteenth-Century Amateur Art in Places of Christian Worship.
-Tennyson and the Archive.

-The History, Development and Conservation of Wrought Iron in Lincolnshire; the Significance of Minor Architectural Details.

How You Study

Study at MPhil/PhD level takes the form of supervised individual research. You are expected to work on one topic of your choice for the duration of the study period. On a regular basis, you are expected to produce appropriate written work, submit it to your supervisors, then meet with your supervisors to receive feedback on your submission and agree the next stage of work.

Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the vast majority of your time will be spent in independent study and research. You will have meetings with your academic supervisor, however the regularity of these will vary depending on your own individual requirements, subject area, staff availability and the stage of your programme.

How You Are Assessed

The assessment at PhD level takes the form of an approximately 80,000 word thesis.

A PhD is awarded based on the quality of your thesis and your ability in an oral examination (viva voce) to present and successfully defend your chosen research topic to a group of academics. You are also expected to demonstrate how your research findings have contributed to knowledge or developed existing theory or understanding.
