We will enhance your knowledge in all the essential areas, from geotechnical and coastal engineering to design and construction management, and we will make sure your research skills are sharp enough to give you the competitive edge when you embark on your career. The Civil Engineering programme is delivered by University of East London.
Our campus location in the heart of London’s Docklands will allow you to see close up the challenges, and opportunities, for the next generation of engineers such as intensive urbanisation and major economic regeneration.
We have excellent links with major employers in the industry, including Atkins Consultants, Waterman Group, Thames Water and the London Borough of Newham.
We will get your engineering career off to the best possible start. Our MSc Engineering courses enjoy widespread professional recognition and are accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) of the Institutions of Civil, Structural, and Highways and Transportation Engineers.
This course also meets the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng), for students with the right undergraduate qualifications.
There is an acknowledged shortage of skilled civil engineers with the right qualifications and experience. We have designed this course to take advantage of this demand and give you a competitive edge when it comes to your career.
Graduates from our MSc Civil Engineering course can expect to find work in a variety of consultancy and contracting roles, in fields as diverse as structural engineering, highways and transportation, aviation and infrastructure projects, geotechnical engineering, and water and coastal engineering.
The skills you will develop will also enhance your career prospects in other related areas, such as research and management. With access to our strong and diverse academic knowledge base and the opportunities to apply that knowledge professionally, we will give you the best-possible head start.
Our Docklands location means that UEL is uniquely placed for links to industry employers, and we have strong contacts with organisations in the local area, including Crossrail, Thames Water and the London Borough of Newham.
Our students have an excellent track record of employment and have landed jobs in sectors that include aviation, infrastructure, transport and construction.
Within our School we also have a dedicated careers advisory service as well as an active alumni network able to facilitate contact with prospective employers.
The course consists of a number of self-contained, taught modules, organised around the various areas of civil engineering.
The range of subjects covered includes Advanced Structural Analysis, Design of Concrete and Steel Structures, Structural Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering, Hydraulic Structures and Costal Engineering, Project Management, Soil Structure Engineering and Highway and Transportation Engineering.
The taught modules are complemented by a research dissertation project that you will undertake at the end of your course. This dissertation is your route to becoming an accredited chartered engineer.
There is a highly practical emphasis to our MSc. You will learn the basic theory and then apply it through working on projects in our extensive laboratories and during fieldwork.
These projects will provide you with the learning opportunities and practical skills you need in your future career. You will graduate with a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the most up-to-date practices and theories in civil engineering.
