The MSc/PG Diploma in Civil Engineering allows students to tailor their studies to meet the needs of their chosen career path by offering a wide range of modules which can be selected, together with a wide choice of individual research projects.
This MSc/PG Diploma in Civil Engineering is offered for civil engineering and related graduates wishing to enter the profession and who choose to study a general Masters-level course rather than specialising in a particular subject area. This course allows students to tailor their studies to meet the needs of their chosen career path by offering a wide range of modules which can be selected, together with a wide choice of individual research projects.
The course is made up of a total of 180 credits, 120 of which are from taught modules and a research project forms the basis of the remaining 60 credits.
Being flexible in its nature, this MSc/PG Diploma in Civil Engineering permits every student to tailor the programme of studies to suit their own chosen career, benefiting from the range of specialist modules available to all MSc students. Flexibility also means that graduates of non-civil engineering disciplines may be eligible for study: Please enquire if this applies in your particular case and the School will make an assessment based on previous study and experience.
