More information about the Civil Engineering, Architecture & Construction discipline

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.

Suggested Studies

  • Master in Architecture

    Architecture - This course is structured to allow you the maximum opportunity to explore design through the thoughtful engagement with site, precedent and materials, to build upon your previous education and practice, to develop individual strengths, to explore theoretical issues and to gain familiarity with UK practice. The admission criteria are set to ensure that only those with appropriate previous educational achievement within the discipline and who are capable of independent study will be admitted.

  • Master in Housing Practice

    This Housing Practice MA course allows you to fulfil the professional requirements for membership of the Chartered Institute of Housing. The Housing Practice programme is a professionally-oriented programme that examines both theoretical and practical issues relevant to housing policy.

  • Master in Building Information Management

    The Building Information Management (BIM) philosophy reflects not just the changing nature of project delivery, which is increasingly digital, multi-disciplinary and integrated, but also the demand from governments and clients for greater efficiencies on construction projects. These efficiencies can be gained from more accurate prototyping, simulation, costing, planning, design, production and operation, and will be an output of sound information management and data input to BIM software.

  • Master in Urban and Regional Planning

    The MA course will give you the knowledge, understanding and skills necessary to practise professionally as a spatial planner. It is designed to meet the growing employer needs for staff who can investigate changes in the natural and built environments, manage the challenges of climate change through sustainable development, and debate and critically reflect upon the knowledge and values underpinning current approaches to land use development.

  • Master in Urban Design

    In an increasingly urbanised world, there is growing international demand for urban design graduates. These courses will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to participate in this rapidly expanding profession. Urban design involves shaping the physical setting for life in cities. The pace of urban change, and the challenge of making cities efficient, sustainable and meaningful, demands creative solutions to design and management.

  • Master in Urban Design

    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’.

  • Master in Engineering

    This MSc in Engineering course builds on previous study of Postgraduate Diploma in Engineering or our MEng, and offers you an opportunity to research an engineering topic in depth.

  • Master in Engineering (MEng)

    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).

  • Master in Sustainable Place Making and Urban Design

    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.

  • Master in Historic Building Conservation

    Choose Kingston's Historic Building Conservation MSc - The course is fully accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors(RICS). This course enables you to become a surveying professional within the specialist field of historic building conservation. London is rich in its collection of historic buildings, and the course team places great emphasis on using these to illustrate the various elements of the course. In particular, past and ongoing works at the Historic Royal Palaces are used as the basis for project work.
