Description

Advertisement

The MSc Civil Engineering course is for graduates who wish to gain specialist knowledge in this area. Applicants working in the civil engineering industry may attend individual modules as short courses on a day-release basis.

Students interested in this course may also be interested in the Analysis and Design of Structures for Fire, Blast and Earthquakes course or the Professional Engineering (Civil Engineering) course.

Teaching

The course is taught by staff from the School of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences, with some contribution from Industrial experts. Teaching is mainly in the form of lectures, but IT sessions and seminars are also used where appropriate. Modules are shared between two ten-week teaching terms running October-December and January-March. Although work for the MSc dissertation commences during the second term, most of the research work is carried out during the summer months.

The duration of full-time studies is 12 months. A part-time route is also available, where students spend either two or three years completing this programme. For completion following two years of study, part-time students attend lectures for up to two days each week. Alternatively, three year completion can be achieved by attending a single day each week.

Assessment

Assessment of theoretical modules is based on a combination of examinations and coursework. Examinations are shared between the January and April/May examination periods. Design oriented modules are normally assessed by coursework only, where students work both in groups and individually on challenging projects that are varied each year. For the MSc dissertation, students are required to attend a viva following submission of the final report.

Career Prospects

Graduates have been very successful in securing employment with leading civil engineering consultants, research institutes and government agencies and pursuing doctoral studies both in the UK and internationally.

Requirements

The standard entry requirement is an honours degree (2:2 minimum) in civil engineering or another appropriate subject. The Postgraduate Diploma course has more flexible entry requirements and students complete the taught part of the MSc course, but do not undertake the project.

For those students whose first language is not English, the following
qualifications are also required:

  • IELTS: 6.5
  • TOEFL (internet-based): 100

Admission to UK universities often requires that students have completed a recognized Bachelor's degree. International students should consider taking a Pre-Master to gain access to UK universities when:
