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.
Normally a lower second class degree in civil engineering. Candidates with an engineering or physical sciences degree, or with relevant professional experience will be considered on an individual basis.
