Become the best you can be in the construction industry with an accredited Master’s in Civil Engineering from Coventry University.
The Civil Engineering MSc is offered to UK civil engineering and cognate science/engineering graduates seeking a professional qualification as Chartered Engineers.
The Civil Engineering (Technical Route) MSc is available for holders of an overseas bachelor’s degree or a UK bachelor’s degree accredited as the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng), for example a BSc in Civil Engineering or cognate science/engineering disciplines, for those seeking a professional qualification as Chartered Engineers through a ‘Technical Route’.
The courses are designed to develop high-level knowledge and wide-ranging understanding of the planning, design, construction and operation of civil engineering works, exploring the traditional and innovative practices behind iconic constructions such as Wembley stadium. They also aim to provide students with practical knowledge and innovative strides applicable to strategic management of construction and engineering projects, including relevant importance of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in construction project management. A technical focused MSc research project is mandatory for students enrolled on the Civil Engineering (Technical Route) MSc course.
These highly practical courses are delivered with input from industry to help you establish or advance your career in the construction industry. Accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM)*, the courses meet the educational base for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status and successful completion provides automatic progression for holders of an accredited Bachelor’s degree.

Why choose this course?
Coventry University offers modern facilities in our High Performance Engineering Centre, including construction site management simulation. We currently have links with industry and the course is developed and delivered by academic lecturers and guest speakers (subject to availability) in collaboration with civil engineering employers, such as Underground Professional Services and Morgan Sindall.
The courses are designed to develop knowledge and understanding of engineering principles and practices, together with methods used to analyse, design, construct and manage construction projects proficiently.
From concept to construction, we aim to cover the technical skills required to analyse, design and develop sound solutions to civil engineering projects. Using case studies, practical sessions, simulation labs and site visits to live projects, you will apply engineering principles and use computer modelling techniques to analyse complex engineering systems, gaining valuable experience of the work you will carry out in an industrial context. Past projects have included the Severn Trent building and the Coventry A45/A46 by-pass.
The civil engineering sector is one of the largest employers in the UK and demand is strong for civil engineering graduates.
This course is ideal for those seeking deeper and more specialist knowledge in a broad range of subjects for employment within the public and private sector as graduate engineers or if you wish to pursue an academic or research-orientated career.
The course will keep you up-to-date with current events and the latest, leading-edge industry innovations through opportunities to visit facilities and hear from leading industry figures. These visits are a great way to interact with potential employers and recently have included I54 Wolverhampton Junction Technopark.
As a postgraduate student, you also receive support from our award-winning Faculty careers service, EEC Futures, which won the ‘Best Placement Service in the UK’ award at the National Undergraduate Employability Awards in 2015 and 2016.
