Course Content

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. These core modules are:

* Research Preparation (autumn semester)
* Research Project Organisation and Design (spring semester)
* By taking the MSc in Civil Engineering: Transportation, you will be expected to focus these core modules and your subsequent research project on an issue relating to Transportation.

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.
The optional modules currently offered are:

* Coastal and River Engineering
* Construction Planning and Risk
* Advanced Pavement Materials
* Rail Transportation
* Applied Computational Fluid Dynamics
* Concrete Structures
* Finite Element Analysis in Structural Mechanics
* A maximum of one of the following level 3 modules: Steel Structures; Pavement Engineering; Geotechnical Engineering; or Geospatial Engineering 1.
* Construction Management Processes
* Soil Mechanics
* Concrete Technology
* Applied Construction Project Management
* Geology for Civil Engineers
* Plates and Shells
* Geospatial Engineering 2 (must have taken Geospatial Engineering 1 during the autumn semester)
* Traffic Engineering
* A maximum of one of the following level 3 modules: Environmental Geotechnology; Railway Engineering; or Sustainable Construction

Please note that all module details are subject to change.
Over the summer period, you will undertake a research project on a subject of your choice relating to Transportation.
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.

Course Structure
The MSc in Civil Engineering: Transportation is taught on a full-time basis over 1 year, commencing at the start of the autumn semester.
The course is taught through lectures, tutorials, projects and student-centred learning.
In both the autumn and spring semesters, you will take 20 credits´ worth of compulsory modules and 40 credits of optional modules chosen from an approved list (120 credits in total).
Over the summer period, you will be required to complete a 60-credit dissertation / research project.
By choosing to augment the MSc in Civil Engineering degree title to include Transportation, all compulsory modules (100 credits, including the 60-credit dissertation) must focus on this area of study. The remaining 80 credits would then be chosen from the optional modules listed under `Course Content´ above.
Specialised pathways exist in the following areas:
MSc in Civil Engineering: Geotechnical Engineering
MSc in Civil Engineering: Management
MSc in Civil Engineering: Pavement Engineering
MSc in Civil Engineering: Structural Engineering
MSc in Civil Engineering: Environmental Fluid mechanics
