UEL has been offering post-graduate programmes in the area of Civil Engineering from 1964. The general aim of the present programme is to provide graduate structural engineers the opportunity to develop and gain additional expertise to meet higher demands of our profession, and help you fast-track your career.

This programme will enhance your knowledge in different areas of structural engineering, such as advanced structural analysis, design in concrete, steel, timber and masonry, dynamics and earthquake engineering, and soil-structure engineering. It will also provide you with deep understanding and skills in research methods. Moreover, our MSc programmes in Civil and Structural Engineering have a wide professional recognition, since they are accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) of the Institutions of Civil, Structural and Highways & Transportation Engineers.

This degree is accredited as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired an Accredited CEng (Partial) BEng (Hons) or an Accredited IEng (Full) BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree (see for further information). We also offer opportunities for those in work by providing part-time opportunities for study and support to help balance their work and study commitments.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.

Requirements for Structural Engineering

  • BEng (Hons) minimum 2:2 or BSc(Hons) minimum 2:1, both in Civil Engineering
  • Appropriate professional qualifications such as MICE or MIStructE
  • Applicants with other qualifications will be considered on an individual basis

In the case of applicants whose first language is not English, then IELTS Academic 6.0 Overall, with no less than 5.5 in components, or equivalent, is required. International qualifications will be checked for appropriate entry to UK Higher Education postgraduate programmes.

Students who apply to enter stages of the programme may be admitted through normal Accreditation of Experiential Learning (AEL) or Accreditation of Certificated Learning (ACL) processes, or through an approved articulation agreement. Therefore such applicants must be able to demonstrate and evidence that they have the required learning outcomes as listed in the modules for which they are seeking exemption.

Work Experience for Structural Engineering

No work experience is required.
