Civil Engineering - MSc


Course Description

This is an accredited Masters course in Civil Engineering with taught modules covering a range of subjects from advanced design concepts to global professional development. It is designed for both engineers in employment and students wishing to pursue further study at masters level. The course has been developed and will be delivered in collaboration with civil engineering employers.

A slightly modified version designed specifically for holders of IEng accredited degrees wishing to study a course approved for meeting the requirements for CEng is code ECT075.

Holders of a CEng accredited Bachelor’s degree, can enrol on any of the MSc courses on offer (ECT053, ECT054, and ECT075) provided they meet the entry requirements. This will automatically meet the educational base for Chartered Engineer status.

Holders of an IEng accredited or an overseas Bachelor’s degree, are advised to complete the MSc Civil Engineering (Technical Route), ECT075. Upon completion of their MSc course, they will need to apply for an academic assessment to be formally approved for CEng. They may be required to complete extra modules if their Bachelor degree is deemed to be not technical enough.

WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

Approved as ‘further learning’ by the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation and the Institute of Highway Engineers.

In-depth modules covering a range of structural concepts to management and contract issues.

Training in research methods is given in preparation for the research project.

This course comprises seven taught modules, plus an integrated project and an individual research project (or a technical project for the IEng version of the course). Each of the taught modules is delivered in one week intensive block. The course been designed for full time or part time study.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

The MSc in Civil Engineering is made up of the following modules:
-Computational Mechanics
-Global Professional Development
-Advanced Design Concepts
-Construction Contracts and Law
-Soil-structure Interaction
-Experimental Methods for Materials and Structures
-Bridge Engineering
-Integrated Project
-Research Project

The course can be studied on a full-time (one year), or part-time basis (two years). Tuition is in one-week intensive blocks, with a few weeks' gap in between blocks for individual research and study. Assessment for the taught modules is a mixture of examination and coursework. For part-time students the blocks are spread over two years rather than one.

This is followed by an Integrated Project and an individual Research Project. For full-time students the Integrating Project is normally team-based and investigates a real engineering problem. For part-time students the Integrating Project is chosen to specifically link their work with their studies.

Training in research methods is given in preparation for the Research Project. Research topics are chosen in discussion with academic staff and a wide range of potential areas within civil and structural engineering are available.

HOW WILL THIS COURSE ENHANCE MY CAREER PROSPECTS?

This programme of study is ideal for those seeking deeper and more specialist knowledge in a broad range of subjects for employment within the public and private sector, or students wishing to pursue an academic or research-orientated career.

GLOBAL LEADERS PROGRAMME

To prepare students for the challenges of the global employment market and to strengthen and develop their broader personal and professional skills Coventry University has developed a unique Global Leaders Programme.

The objectives of the programme, in which postgraduate and eligible undergraduate students can participate, is to provide practical career workshops and enable participants to experience different business cultures.
