MSc Civil Engineering


Course Description

OVERVIEW

This is an accredited Masters course in Civil Engineering with taught modules covering a range of subjects from advanced structural analysis and design to management and contractual issues. It is designed for both engineers in employment and students wishing to pursue further study at masters level. The course has been developed and will be delivered in collaboration with civil engineering employers.

A slightly modified version designed specifically for holders of IEng accredited degrees wishing to study a course approved for meeting the requirements for CEng is code ECT075.

WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

Approved as ‘further learning’ by the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation and the Institute of Highway Engineers.

In-depth modules covering a range of structural concepts to management and contract issues.

Training in research methods is given in preparation for the research project.


WHAT WILL I LEARN?

The MSc in Civil Engineering is made up of the following modules:

Project Management;
Construction Contracts and Law;
Advanced design concepts;
Finite element analysis of structures;
Soil-structure interaction;
Organisational theory and behaviour;
Experimental methods for materials and structures;
Integrating project.
The course can be studied on a full-time (one year), or part-time basis (two years).

You will also carry out an integrating project and an individual research project*. For full-time students, the integrating project is normally team-based, and investigates a real engineering problem. For part-time students the integrating project is chosen to specifically link their work with their studies.

Training in research methods is given in preparation for the research project. Research topics are chosen in discussion with academic staff, and a wide range of potential areas within civil engineering and management are available.

* For holders of IEng degrees, course ECT068 has a technically-based research project.
