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

Your future career
Civil Engineers with postgraduate qualifications find a wide range of career opportunities with consultancy, contactor and client organisations, as well as other related areas such as research and management.


The programme can be taken either in a part-time mode by engineers employed in the UK, or in a full-time mode by overseas engineers. The full time PgD and MSc are of one to one & half calendar years duration with enrolment on the programme possible either in September or February. For the part-time MSc there is a maximum duration of six years. Students require one-two 30 credit modules for the CPD short programmes, two modules for the PgCert, four modules for the PgD and four modules plus a 60 credit Research Dissertation for the MSc.

Learning environment
Teaching methods include lectures, tutorials, seminars, laboratory work and external site visits. Web based learning is employed for the research dissertation.

Assessment is mainly by end of semester examination. The aggregate pass mark for a module is 50% with minimum module component mark of 40%.


* For the MSc, a BEng (Hons) minimum 2:2 or BSc(Hons) minimum 2:1 in Civil Engineering
