Course content

The rapidly developing world and evolution of urban development have caused a massive surge in environmental pollution, energy consumption and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Civil engineers should take a leadership role to promote sustainable development by providing creative and innovative solutions to the challenges associated with sustainability in civil engineering practices.

This programme provides students with technologically advanced knowledge, problem-solving skills and a comprehensive understanding of the key aspects of sustainability in civil engineering construction. It has a particular emphasis on the future trends of global sustainable development. It is intended to provide critical awareness of current and future problems associated with the intervention of sustainability strategies and their integration in the civil engineering sector, as well as prospective solutions from existing and emerging scientific technologies.

This full-time 18-month programme comprises two semesters of taught modules, assessed by coursework and examination, followed by a research dissertation during your third semester. The programme is also offered on a part-time 36-month basis for potential students currently working in industry. All the modules are delivered in English by an international academic staff who specialise in sustainability and sustainable construction.

Modules

• Sustainable Technology and Building Materials
• Sustainable Drainage Systems
• Sustainable Energy and Environment
• Integration of Energy Strategies in the Design of Buildings
• Advanced Simulation of Sustainable Structural Systems
• Sustainable Engineering with Timber
• Environmental Engineering and Management Practice
• Sustainable Urban Planning Strategies
• Dissertation

Sustainable Solutions for Construction

Civil engineering plays a dominant role in providing sustainable solutions to the construction industry. This programme focusses on all of the technologies, techniques and methods that will enable future civil engineers to incorporate an environmentally viable approach to the design of future infrastructure. These designs will be based on renewable energies, recycling of waste construction materials and industrial by-products, smart systems for the efficient drainage and utilisation of surface water run-offs, natural wastewater treatment methods as well as modern digital representation techniques and structural models.

What are my career prospects?

Graduates of this programme will be equipped to take up professional employment in the civil engineering industry and become lifelong learners with an appreciation of the value to society of an education in sustainable construction. On the basis of accreditation by the Joint Board of Moderators, the MSc programme may be used as the final element of the educational base for being a Chartered Engineer.

Part-time study option also available.
