Course content

These courses explore the properties of soils and soft rocks in relation to civil engineering, the theory of geomechanics and practical geotechnical engineering.

All our MSc courses are career-oriented and cover both theoretical background and practical design considerations. Lectures are given mainly by full-time staff but important contributions are made by visiting professors and guest lecturers who are eminent industrialists.

Many of our students continue their studies to undertake research towards a PhD.

Choosing a stream

The MSc in Soil Mechanics and Engineering Seismology is concerned with the solution of engineering problems connected with the study of seismic ground movements, their effect on foundations and building materials and engineering structures. Course-specific modules are as follows:

  • Basic dynamics and analysis of strong motion data
  • Earthquake geotechnical engineering
  • Engineering seismology

The MSc in Soil Mechanics and Environmental Geotechnics meets the growing need for advanced specialist geo-environmental education, including a grounding in the relevant topics in chemistry and biology. Course-specific modules are as follows:

  • Contaminated land and groundwater
  • Landfill engineering

This MSc course offers the add-on module of business management, which comprises 120 hours of study as an alternative to the corresponding amount of engineering study.

This four-unit module equips you with the skills needed to work in competitive business environments in the civil engineering industry. It is suitable for those who wish to combine a technical competence in their chosen field with a grasp of the principles of business management, and is designed to complement core material in the MSc courses.
