This MSc 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. The Birmingham MSc 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.
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.
The taught modules cover the four main core themes of Civil Engineering: Structural, Water, Geotechnical and Transport Engineering, plus a compulsory 20 credit module on Finance and Core Skills.
The research project can be industry or University-based. It can be taken in collaboration with a company, or be more research-focused
