Civil Engineering is a branch of Engineering that deals with the design and construction of the artefacts of civil use: civil and industrial constructions, transportation infrastructure, bridges and tunnels, hidro-technical utilities such as dams, aqueducts and sewage systems, structures in seismical areas and others. The prerequisites for studying civil engineering include mathematics, physics, project management and design among others. The students can specialize in a variety of sub-topics like: Construction Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Water Resource Engineering, Earthquake Engineering Costal Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Materials Engineering or Urban Engineering.
Architecture is both the science and the art of designing and erecting buildings and building complexes according to certain proportions and rules dependent on the function, character and designation of the building. The science is relevant through the technical and functional resolution of an architectural project while the art is the special component of creating nonfigurative plastic images of abstract essence. Architecture is the most comprehensive form or spatial organization that aims at fulfilling the complex functions in a balanced, harmonious and esthetical manner.
For the realization of a building/construction/edifice both architects and civil engineers work together usually on well-defined projects starting with the design phase, then costs and resources estimation and finally implementation, which includes detailed structural calculations.
This integrated masters degree course in engineering builds on recent and previous study and offers you an opportunity to fulfil the educational requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. The MEng course aims to meet professional development needs as specified by the Engineering Council and relevant engineering institutions in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC).
The Master of Science in Civil Engineering educates a general Civil Engineer, but not only, as it is focused on planning and construction of megastructures with the sustainable use of resources.
MSc ENERGY FOR SMART CITIES is custom developed for internationally-oriented engineering students who wish to implement modern energy technologies and entrepreneurial activities in the smart city environment. Graduates will be truly multi-disciplinary; well qualified to work in industry or research, or to take on policy-making roles in energy issues related to secure, sustainable urban living and working.
This MSc in Engineering course builds on previous study and offers you an opportunity to research an engineering topic in depth.Our MSc in Engineering is accredited for Chartered Engineer status by the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED) and the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE). A pathway through our MSc is also accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and the Institution and Engineering and Technology (IET).
This course aims to prepare you for creative roles in the context of landscape and urbanism design practice and research. Our London location, local and European networks and an international perspective provide the focus for contemporary landscape and urbanism projects, including green and water infrastructures, sustainable environment, and city strategies and the detailed design of places for people.
Before 2008 in Australia, registration as an architect was based on a Bachelor of Architecture, which at many universities was undertaken as a 3+2 double bachelor program. After 2008, registration as an architect in Australia required a Master of Architecture.
This course is aimed at graduates and professionals who are looking to broaden their knowledge base, extend their technical expertise or gain further learning to meet the needs of the professional institutions.
Choose Kingston's Sustainable Place Making and Urban Design MA - This accredited course is ideal if you want to focus your planning studies on spatial analysis, place making and urban design within the context of developing thriving sustainable communities and vibrant public places.
Tanto los gobiernos como los organismos energéticos en sus diferentes niveles (internacional, nacional, autonómico, local) mantienen la necesidad perentoria de hacer que el desarrollo sostenible sea una realidad omnipresente en los próximos años. Se ha demostrado que este desarrollo debe tener en cuenta tanto el aprovechamiento de fuentes primarias renovables, como una elevada eficiencia energética en los diferentes procesos de aprovechamiento de las energías finales.
The Graduate Diploma in Urban and Regional Planning offers a thorough grounding in urban and regional planning both to graduates wishing to enter the profession and to practising professionals wishing to upgrade their knowledge.
Our Building Surveying MSc is ideal if you are interested in the construction and maintenance of buildings and interested in being the equivalent of a 'building doctor'. Those studying on the part-time route will normally be expected to be working within a profession related to the course subject matter.
Urban design involves shaping the physical setting for life in cities. This course provides a practical preparation for professionals entering urban design practice. It gives you an opportunity to study urban design at postgraduate level, without the need to commit to the full MA programme. It also gives practitioners in the urban environment the necessary basic skills in urban design to enable government to deliver its vision of an ‘urban renaissance’.
