UEL has been offering postgraduate programmes in the area of civil engineering since 1964.
The general aim of the programme is to provide graduate civil engineers with 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 civil engineering, such as structural, geotechnical and coastal engineering, hydraulics, transportation, design and construction management. 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, as they are accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) of the Institutions of Civil, Structural, and Highways and 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 provide support to help balance work and study commitments.
Why Choose Us?
We strive to provide you with learning opportunities and practical skills that will help you in your future employment. We will help you gain a comprehensive depth of knowledge and understanding of the most up-to-date practices and theories in civil engineering. There is a highly practical emphasis to the programme in the way it addresses many theoretical, design and professional issues. The programme continues to develop, becoming increasingly popular both in the UK and overseas.
Engineers employed in the construction industry find the part-time mode of the programme both flexible, adaptable and easily tailored to suit their personal requirements.
The programme offers a number of self-contained taught modules, organised around the various areas of civil engineering. The taught modules are complemented by a research dissertation project that is undertaken as the final part of the course.

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.
Minimum 2:2 with honours Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) or minimum 2:1 with honours Bachelor of Science (BSc) from the UK, taught in English in a civil engineering discipline.
Please note you would usually be expected to have at least a Grade C in English and Maths GCSE. Most programmes also accept Key Skills Level 2 Application of Number and Communication as equivalent to GCSE Maths and English.
No work experience is required.

As a postgraduate on this programme, you are entitled to student membership of the Institution of Civil Engineers (www.ice.org.uk) and the Institution of Structural Engineers (www.istructe.org) and if not already a member, you are urged to join. The Civil Engineering Liaison Officer with the professional institutions can advise you. The Officer also organises a presentation by the professional institutions at UEL each year, which you may find helpful to attend.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
With over 23,000 students from 120 countries worldwide, UEL is one of the UK’s most diverse and fastest growing universities.
