This course develops further understanding on advanced civil engineering.

Professional accreditation
The course is accredited by JBM as meeting the requirements for further learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who already have an accredited CEng (partial) BEng(Hons) or an accredited IEng (full) BEng/BSc(Hons) undergraduate first degree.

Course structure
The MSc requires successful completion of six modules together with a thesis on an agreed subject; a PGDip does not require a thesis.

Areas of study
The course content reflects the professional expertise and research interests of the course team. Modules are appropriate for civil engineers wishing to wider their knowledge in core areas such as structural analysis, geotechnical engineering and hydraulics. The course also offers a degree of flexibility to undertake study in related subjects such as applied geology, water environmental management and construction management. The course has an emphasis on practical applications of advanced civil engineering concepts and much use is made of state-of-the-art laboratory, computational facilities and technical software.

Core modules cover geotechnical earthquake engineering, dynamics of structures with earthquake engineering applications, random vibrations of structures, rock mechanics, coastal engineering and wave loading, and hydrogeology.

Syllabus
Core modules cover geotechnical earthquake engineering, dynamics of structures with earthquake engineering applications, random vibrations of structures, rock mechanics, coastal engineering and wave loading, and hydrogeology.

Career and progression opportunities
The course is particularly appropriate for work in structural, geotechnical , and/or coastal engineering.

The MSc Geographical Information Systems is designed to develop high level application knowledge and skills for use by GIS analysts, decision-makers and environmental managers. The course provides participants with systems and applications expertise enabling them to meet the challenge and opportunities of applying GIS technologies in the workplace. It has a core focus, looking at the tools and techniques of GIS and critically examines these in the context of contemporary issues and concerns. In parallel the course provides studies across the environmental management field from interlinked MSc courses including: Environmental Assessment and Management, Water and Environmental Management and Applied Geology.

The impact of climate change on water resources continues to present new challenges to local and national governments worldwide. This course provides an overview of the current issues in the water/environmental industry, both in the UK and overseas. Read more
The impact of climate change on water resources continues to present new challenges to local and national governments worldwide. This course provides an overview of the current issues in the water/environmental industry, both in the UK and overseas. Participants acquire specialist knowledge and develop key analytical and scientific skills in the context of current environmental legislation such as the new EU Water Framework Directive.

The degree recognises that, to meet the challenge of certain types of jobs in the water/environmental industry, many graduates in technical professions require a year of further academic specialisation in addition to their initial BEng or BSc awards.

Areas of study
Study comprises four core modules, an intensive residential fieldwork component in which the knowledge acquired in those modules is put into practice, and a selection of options. An individual project is undertaken in an area of particular interest. Typical examples might include an investigation of estuarine flow processes; assessment of potential for re-use of treated effluent; or management of water resources in the UK and overseas.

Syllabus
Water Resources Management
Water Treatment Technology
Waste-water Treatment Technology
Quantitative Techniques for Water and Environmental Management
Water Quality Analysis (residential fieldwork)

Options from:
Hydrogeology and Hydrology
Environmental Impact Assessment
Ecological Principles
Cost and Financial Management
Geographical Information Systems and Environmental Management

Career and progression opportunities
Graduates are well equipped to apply for jobs with water companies, local government, the Environment Agency or civil engineering consultants, as well as equivalent bodies overseas.
