Civil Engineering Structures (MSc)


Course Description

The MSc Civil Engineering Structures is a long established and accredited programme for professional engineers who wish to expand their technical knowledge and skills in structural analysis and design. The programme includes advanced analytical techniques, use of current design standards but also use of technology solutions as extensive specialist software is available to support learning and open prospects for future careers. The Department of Civil Engineering offers a unique academic environment with many opportunities for creative design, research and professional engagement both at the University and with professional institutions and well known consulting engineers that are located in the vicinity. Experts from industry are regularly invited to provide insight into state of the art in structural engineering and diverse career opportunities.

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.

Course Content

The course covers advanced study of modern structural engineering subjects, providing an up-to-date combination of design and analytical topics and of theory and professional practice. The course modules cover theoretical aspects of advanced structural engineering and develops appropriate design skills. The course offers a blend of theory and practice at postgraduate level to enhance the career prospects of both recent graduates and mid-career structural engineers.

Course Structure

Core modules:

* Advanced analysis and analysis of structures
* Structural dynamics
* Finite element methods
* Structural reliability and risk
* Design of concrete structures
* Design of steel and composite structures

In addition, two elective modules are selected from:
* Analysis of steel and concrete structures for blast and fire exposure
* Bridge engineering
* Earthquake analysis of structures.

Teaching and Assessment

Teaching -
The course is taught by staff from the School of Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering with some contribution from Industrial experts. Teaching is mainly in the form of lectures, but IT sessions and seminars are also used where appropriate. Modules are shared between two ten-week teaching terms running October-December and January-March. Although work for the MSc dissertation commences during the second term, most of the research work is carried out during the summer months.

The duration of full-time studies is 12 months. A part-time route is also available, where students spend either two or three years completing this programme. For completion following two years of study, part-time students attend lectures for up to two days each week. Alternatively, three year completion can be achieved by attending a single day each week.

Assessment -
Assessment of theoretical modules is based on a combination of examinations and coursework. Examinations are shared between the January and April/May examination periods. Design oriented modules are normally assessed by coursework only, where students work both in groups and individually on challenging projects that are varied each year. For the MSc dissertation, students are required to attend a viva following submission of the final report.

Career Prospects

Graduates have been very successful in securing employment with leading civil engineering consultants, research institutes and government agencies and pursuing doctoral studies both in the UK and internationally.

(Student Profile)

Panagiotis Panas

The high standard of education and benefits of living in the heart of one of the world's greatest cities led me to City University London.

Why did you choose to study at City University London?
The high standard of education and benefits of living in the heart of one of the world's greatest cities led me to City University London. Having been an undergraduate student in the Department of Civil Engineering, I immediately realised the high quality of the programme. My undergraduate studies have been essential to my development as a civil engineer and provided me with the skills applicable to the multi-disciplinary field of civil engineering. My collaboration with the academic staff was always excellent and the pleasant environment for studying encouraged me to continue as a postgraduate student in the field of structural engineering, so as to achieve my initial goal of becoming a chartered engineer.

What did you enjoy most about your course?
I really enjoyed expanding my knowledge and developing skills through a very challenging and intensive course. I firmly believe that the MSc in Civil Engineering Structures includes all the core modules necessary for me to excel in the field of structural engineering and pursue a career as an engineer that meets modern challenges.

What has been a highlight of your course so far?
In May 2015, I was selected as the recipient of the Skinners' Company Atwell Bursary for my strong track record of academic excellence. This scholarship is not only a reward for my effort during my time in higher education, but also a strong motivation to work more and harder.

What do you plan to do after you graduate?
I always had an interest in fields other than civil engineering. Instead of continuing onto a PhD in Civil Engineering I have decided to attend a second MSc in Financial Management at City University London, which will give me the opportunity to further broaden my horizons. I feel confident that the strong mathematical background, in combination with the critical thinking I developed on the Civil Engineering Structures MSc, will contribute positively to my studies as a postgraduate student in a completely different field.
