Our MSc programmes are ideal if you are a graduate or professional in the civil engineering, structural engineering or construction sector and want to deepen and broaden your technical knowledge and understanding of specialised areas.

Course details

There are three routes you can select from to gain a postgraduate Master’s award:

  • MSc Civil and Structural Engineering – one year full time
  • MSc Civil and Structural Engineering – two years part time
  • MSc Civil and Structural Engineering (with Advanced Practice) – two years full time

The one-year programme is a great option if you want to gain a traditional MSc qualification – you can find out more here. This two-year master’s degree with advanced practice enhances your qualification by adding to the one-year master’s programme an internship, research or study abroad experience.

The MSc Civil and Structural Engineering (with Advanced Practice) offers you the chance to enhance your qualification by completing an internship, research or study abroad experience in addition to the content of the one-year MSc. Our MSc helps you to enhance your technical skills in various core areas of civil engineering that are in demand in the construction industry, such as advanced geotechnics and river and coastal engineering. You further develop your conceptual understanding of critical aspects of structural engineering, such as advanced structural analysis and design, and become familiar with complex analysis and design techniques, modelling the causes and solutions of problems involving the real behaviour of structures. You also acquire an advanced knowledge and understanding of the design of structures under dynamic and earthquake conditions. Advanced project planning and visualisation methods, such as building information modelling, are also integrated into the course.

Professional accreditation

Our MSc Civil and Structural Engineering is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (representing the ICE, IStructE, IHE and CIHT) as a technical master's. This means it meets the requirements for further learning for Chartered Engineer (CEng) under the provisions of UK-SPEC for candidates who have already acquired a CEng-accredited BEng (Hons) undergraduate first degree.

By completing this professionally accredited MSc you benefit from an easier route to professional membership or chartered status. It also helps improve your job prospects, enhancing your career and earning potential. Some companies show preference for graduates who possess a professionally accredited qualification.

The Joint Board of Moderators represents the following four professional bodies:

  • Institution of Civil Engineers
  • Institution of Structural Engineers
  • Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation
  • Institute of Highway Engineers

The two-year MSc Civil and Structural Engineering with Advanced Practice incorporates all the elements of the one-year MSc and adds to these the advanced practice module. The new title is being prepared for formal recognition as an accredited title.

What you study

For the MSc with advanced practice, you complete 120 credits of taught modules, a 60-credit master’s research project and 60 credits of advanced practice.

Examples of past MSc research projects include:

  • Shear strength of composite and non-composite steel beam and concrete slab construction
  • Investigation into the self-healing capability of bacterial concrete
  • A review of the use of smart materials and technologies in cable stayed bridge construction
  • FRP and its use as structural components
  • Non-linear modelling of ground performance under seismic conditions

Course structure

Core modules

Teaching

How you learn

You learn through lectures, tutorials and practical sessions. Lectures provide the theoretical underpinning while practical sessions give you the opportunity to put theory into practice, applying your knowledge to specific problems. 

Tutorials and seminars provide a context for interactive learning and allow you to explore relevant topics in depth. In addition to the taught sessions, you undertake a substantive MSc research project.

In addition to the taught sessions, you undertake a substantive MSc research project and the Advanced Practice module. This module enables you to experience and develop employability or research attributes and experiential learning opportunities in either an external workplace, internal research environment or by studying abroad. You also critically engage with either external stakeholders or internal academic staff, and reflect on your own personal development through your Advanced Practice experience.

How you are assessed

Assessment varies from module to module. It may include in-course assignments, design exercises, technical reports, presentations or formal examinations. For your MSc project you prepare a dissertation.

Your Advanced Practice module is assessed by an individual written reflective report (3,000 words) together with a study or workplace log, where appropriate, and through a poster presentation.

Employability

The course equips you with the relevant technical and transferrable skills to pursue a career as a civil or structural engineer or technical manager with leading multidisciplinary consultancies or contractors, as well as research and government organisations.

You also acquire an advanced knowledge and understanding of the design of structures under dynamic and earthquake conditions. Advanced project planning and visualisation methods, such as building information modelling, are also integrated into the course. The 60-credit dissertation gives you the opportunity to conduct a supervised research project developing original knowledge in a specific area of civil or structural engineering. The programme structure is divided into a combination of 10 and 20-credit taught modules, delivered over two semesters. By successfully completing these modules, you proceed to a 60-credit research project.

Starting salaries for new graduate civil and structural engineers can reach £32,000, increasing to £70,000 when a senior level is reached (prospects.ac.uk, 2015).
