With the ever increasing environmental challenges, there is strong demand for civil and structural engineers who are practically-skilled in efficient design, green construction and sustainable development and who can play a central role in achieving sustainable adaptation to and mitigation of these challenges.

The MSc Sustainable Civil and Structural Engineering programme provides a specialist, technical master's-level education in civil and structural engineering.

The programme is designed to embed the knowledge, skills and understanding required to critically assess the function, use and impacts of concrete, steel and alternative construction materials in structural designs and to participate in the design, implementation and evaluation of engineering projects which are truly sustainable, bringing social, economic and environmental benefits to current future generations.

The Sustainable Civil and Structural Engineering MSc provides an opportunity for you to develop advanced specialist knowledge in structural engineering, understand how to address the increasing challenges for the industry and develop your skills for the working environment.

This MSc programme is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators, which represents the four major civil engineering institutions and accredits civil engineering programmes on behalf of the Engineering Council, which sets and maintains the standards for the engineering profession in the UK. This degree is accredited as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired a partial CEng accredited undergraduate first degree. See http://www.jbm.org.uk for further information.

This 12-month programme consists of taught modules over two semesters and a major project starting in semester 2 and continuing through the summer. Assessment is by examinations, coursework and an individual dissertation. Places on the programme are limited to between 15 and 20.

This programme can also be studied part-time over two years. The same modules are followed and the same total credits are achieved, but these are spread over four semesters at 30 credits per semester. The independent research project (module ENGG660) is chosen in the first year, but the completion deadline is not until the end of the second year, allowing flexibility in timing and distribution of effort over the full duration of the course.

Projects

Project work, based on a topic of industrial or scientific relevance, contributes 60 credits and is carried out in laboratories in the University or at an approved placement in industry. The project is examined by dissertation, and award of the MSc (Eng) degree will require evidence of in-depth understanding, mastery of research techniques, ability to analyse assembled data, and assessment of outcomes.
