Course content

The development and progression of society is largely dependent upon the skill, imagination and dedication of its civil engineers. This established course offers the knowledge and expertise necessary for a career across a broad spectrum of the professional discipline.

Overview

The MSc in Civil Engineering aims to build on the knowledge and skills that you have obtained as an undergraduate and to help prepare you for a career as a consulting civil engineer across the broad spectrum of the professional discipline. The overall aim of this well-established course is to provide a sound scientific, technical and commercial understanding of civil engineering issues and practice. You will be introduced to the broad nature of civil engineering through the integration of knowledge from structural engineering, geotechnical engineering and water engineering. The course will also provide training in engineering research methods and will develop a range of related transferable skills. You will also develop an appreciation of the principles and activities involved in the day-to-day management of engineering business units, typical of those within which civil engineering is practised.

Graduates of this course will be able to work as professional and highly proficient engineers with the skills and expertise necessary to work in a range of careers across the field of civil engineering.

Distinctive features

You will find that this course has a number of distinctive features:

  • The employment record of graduates is excellent, with the majority of graduates joining engineering consultancies.
  • The MSc in Civil Engineering is accredited by the ICE, IStructE, IHT and the IHIE. It meets the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer under the provisions of UK-SPEC for intakes 2014-2018 inclusive, for candidates that have already acquired a CEng-accredited BEng (Hons) undergraduate first degree or an IEng-accredited BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree.
  • You have the opportunity to study in a research-led department taught by staff rated in the highest possible category by independent Government assessment, and with facilities commensurate with a top-class research unit.
