Our Civil Engineering programme aims to provide graduate engineers with advanced capabilities and in-depth knowledge in a range of specialised aspects of civil engineering. It is also designed to update the technical skills of practising engineers engaged in the planning, design, construction and operation of civil engineering works and to contribute to a personal continuing professional development programme.
This programme is particularly useful in providing the necessary further learning for engineers working in the construction industry who hold related first degrees such as engineering geology or construction management.
Six study streams can be accessed by students on the Civil Engineering programme Bridge Engineering, Construction Management, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Water Engineering and Transport Planning and Practice.
The programme is organised and delivered by University staff, as well as practising engineers from consultancies and local authorities.
There are over 30 modules available, each worth 15 credits, covering the general areas of bridge engineering, construction management, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, water engineering, and transport planning. The majority of Bridge, Geotechnical and Structural Engineering modules can be studied by distance learning.
The wide variety of modules that are available allows you to choose different module pathways through the programme to suit your individual needs. Depending on the module mix the Civil Engineering MSc is classified as both technical or non-technical for the purpose of accreditation by the relevant professional bodies.
To achieve the MSc Civil Engineering you will need to pass eight modules, with at least one being chosen from each of the Bridge Engineering, Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering and Construction Management groups of modules. The remaining four modules are a free choice from all the Civil Engineering module groups.
The modular arrangement is intended to tailor the programme to your individual needs and provide maximum flexibility in terms of attendance of full-time and part-time students.
The majority of modules run for ten weeks and comprise approximately 30 hours (three hours per week) of class time and 120 hours of self-study and assignments.
Successful completion of four modules is required for a student to gain a Postgraduate Certificate, eight modules for a Postgraduate Diploma. Eight modules and a dissertation are required for the award of an MSc.
Individual modules can be used to contribute towards a continuing professional development programme.
A good honours degree in civil engineering or equivalent or at least five years£ experience and a professional qualification.
