MSc Civil Engineering, University of Nottingham
This course provides technical knowledge and skills to solve civil engineering problems, as well as transferable skills.
This 12 month course aims to provide you with the technical knowledge and skills to develop the analytical, decision-making and critical powers required to solve civil engineering problems, along with the transferable skills to enable a leading career in civil engineering.
An innovative feature of the MSc Civil Engineering is that the degree title can be augmented to include a subject theme (in this case, structural engineering) by choosing specific modules in the first two semesters and completing a project related to the theme.
As such, you will concentrate on the technical knowledge and skills relevant to the field of structural engineering for the award of MSc Civil Engineering: Structural Engineering.
The compulsory modules taken on this course are designed to give you a strong foundation in the skills and methodology necessary to successfully complete your research project over the summer period.
By taking the MSc Civil Engineering: Structural Engineering, you will be expected to focus these core modules and your subsequent research project on an issue relating to Structural Engineering.
The course is taught through lectures, tutorials, projects and student-centred learning.
In addition, you will be able to choose from a number of optional modules to either further develop your studies in this area or to include other topics offered from an approved list of civil engineering modules.
Over the summer period, you will undertake a research project on a subject of your choice relating to structural engineering. The research project is a chance to carry out a major piece of independent research under the supervision of a suitable member of academic staff.
