Course description The postgraduate programmes follow a fixed selection of eight core taught units centred on research skills and relevant technical units. The Research Methods unit aims to equip the students with the necessary skills for planning a research programme, formulating a hypothesis, developing and extending their knowledge of qualitative and quantitative methods, and evaluating the outcome of the research project.
The project unit is an individual submission of an investigation into a specific area of the programme studied, providing the student with the opportunity to pursue a programme of independent study. The work is to be of an investigative nature having an experimental, analytical, computer based or fieldwork input.
The technical units aim to develop the understanding and application of advanced theoretical contents of the specialist subject.
Career opportunities Employment prospects for graduates of these courses are very good, especially in view of the upturn in new infrastructure projects in the UK (e.g. Olympics 2012). Successful students enter into a variety of positions within the construction industry, ranging from working in a design office to working with contractors and in local authorities.
Typical background of applicant The programme is designed primarily for engineers and other construction industry professionals who are seeking to enhance their understanding of advanced civil, structural and geotechnical engineering technology. It may also be of interest to graduates who are seeking to directly enhance their attractiveness to potential employers.
Professional contacts/industry links The MSc course is approved by the Joint Board of Moderators as a programme of further learning, in accordance with Engineering Council requirements.
