It will also provide you with deep understanding and skills in research methods.

Moreover, our MSc programmes in civil and structural engineering have a wide professional recognition, as they are accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) of the Institutions of Civil, Structural, and Highways and Transportation Engineers. This degree is accredited as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired an Accredited CEng (Partial) BEng (Hons) or an Accredited IEng (Full) BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree (see http://www.jbm.org.uk for further information).

We also offer opportunities for those in work by providing part-time opportunities for study, and provide support to help balance work and study commitments.
