The Civil Engineering MSc offered by the University of Surrey is delivered by leading academics, together with practising engineers from consultancies and local authorities. It will equip you with first-class analytical and technical skills across a range of civil engineering disciplines, which will aid you in pursuing a highly successful career in the field of civil engineering.

About

Our fully accredited Civil Engineering MSc offered by the University of Surrey helps graduate engineers to acquire advanced capabilities and in-depth knowledge across a range of civil engineering disciplines, including bridge engineering, construction management, and geotechnical, structural and water engineering.

The programme offers six study streams, including Bridge Engineering, Construction Management, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Water Engineering and Environmental Engineering, and Infrastructure Engineering and Management.

As well as supporting the career development of civil engineering graduates, this programme provides the necessary further learning for engineers working in the construction industry who hold related first degrees such as engineering geology or construction management. It is also designed to update the technical skills of practising engineers engaged in the planning, design, construction and operation of civil engineering works.

Accreditation

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.
