The aim of the programme is to meet the needs of engineers engaged in the planning, design and construction of a variety of Civil Engineering works
PgD and MSc at UEL
The programme offers a number of self contained modules, organised around the various areas of Civil Engineering. It has been developed as a result of successful operation of a Postgraduate Diploma programme since 1975 and numerous advanced programmes since 1964. In each module theory and design are studied together in order to solve practical problems.
The choice of modules and the subject of the research dissertation allow some specialisation of the MSc
