This course is designed to advance analytical skills in the core subject areas of Civil Engineering including Structural Analysis, Sustainability and Hydraulics. Application of modern IT techniques to complex problem solving is a theme that runs through the course. This course also covers broader issues of project and process management in Civil Engineering.
The Internship Course seeks to provide the same rigorous and challenging programme of professional practice as the MSc Civil and Environmental Engineering but has the added advantage of including a 6 months internship incorporated into the period of study. This makes it ideal for students seeking to add a practical dimension to their studies and understand the demands of workplace supervision and management. Internship opportunities exist throughout the civil and construction industry within the UK.
This course is accredited by the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES). Successful completion of this course satisfies the academic requirements for the grade Member.
This course is designed to advance analytical skills in the consideration of the interrelationship of current environmental issues and civil engineering. The course links these studies to the core subject areas of Civil Engineering including Structural Analysis, Sustainability, Geotechnics and Hydraulics.
Whilst there is the opportunity to complete empirical study the application of modern IT techniques to complex problem solving is a theme that runs through the course. The course also covers broader issues of project and process management in Civil Engineering. The internship will come at the end of the course following the successful completion of all taught modules.
During the Internship you will work for 6 months with an employer. The internship allows you to apply your theoretical knowledge to a practical work-based situation. It will allow you to improve existing skills and acquire new ones, explore various career opportunities, network and be part of a team. This will improve your understanding of the world of work and professional practice in the workplace. It will also enhance your career prospects, allowing you to focus on your potential career path.
• Advanced Structural Analysis
