This industry-accredited course offers a strategic overview of civil engineering and management issues; addressing the challenges facing the construction industry. It successfully combines structural engineering with advanced construction management. The course is aimed at civil and/or structural engineers who aspire to become senior managers in both consulting engineering and contracting organisations, and is particularly suitable for graduate engineers starting their career in the construction industry. It will develop your professional, analytical and management skills, as well as improve your technical skills and knowledge.

This degree is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators, which includes the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE), Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT) and the Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE) under licence from the Engineering Council, as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired a partial CEng accredited BEng(Hons) undergraduate first degree.

It should be noted that candidates completing the MSc who hold an underpinning accredited Eng degree or a non-accredited bachelor degree will need to apply for an academic assessment to determine whether they will meet the educational base for CEng registration. We are currently accredited until 2023 entry.

See the Joint Board of Moderators website for further information.

Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.

Please check the Engineering Council website for more information.

What will you study?

There are four taught modules and a thesis. Three of the modules are intended to provide you with an understanding of the core management skills needed to make a major contribution within the industry, while one structural design module enables you to broaden and deepen your technical knowledge of specialised civil engineering areas. You will also cover subjects that are both specific and complementary to civil engineering. In addition, you will develop the ability to resolve the broader problems that arise in civil engineering.

The advanced concrete design module is assessed by coursework based on the national university competition organised by The Concrete Centre, the trade body representing the concrete industry in the UK.

Work placement scheme

Many postgraduate courses at Kingston University allow students to do a 12-month work placement as part of their course. The responsibility for finding the work placement is with the student; we cannot guarantee the work placement, just the opportunity to undertake it. As the work placement is an assessed part of the course, it is covered by a student's tier 4 visa.

Invoicing on the placement courses is split into two stages. The standard course fee is payable in year 1 with the placement fee invoiced in year 2. Therefore, students starting in September 2018 would therefore be charged the placement fee of £1,230 in September 2019. Students commencing the course in September 2019 will be invoiced the placement fee in 2020 (provisionally £1,350).

This amount will only be charged to your account after you find a placement and are enrolled on the module. You will not be charged this fee if you do not manage to secure a work placement.
