The MSc Civil Engineering programme is your opportunity to establish or consolidate your career as a Civil Engineer. Your engineering studies will develop the critical and analytical skills, and management expertise needed to manage civil engineering projects and implement sustainable solutions.
The course provides the further learning required to progress to Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. Working professionals may progress towards CEng status through a tailor-made route. This will help you accelerate to the remaining steps of CEng status by working with your employer in the process. This is a unique feature of a Masters course and significantly reduces the period required to achieve Chartered status.
As well as developing your analytical and problem-solving skills, tuition covers project planning and management. The MSc Civil Engineering course is also underpinned by research into areas such as the use of novel and sustainable materials, geotechnics, and structural modelling.
The course has two distinct pathways to enable you to specialise in either Structural or Environmental Engineering. You should select the relevant pathway – MSc Civil Engineering (Structural) or MSc Civil Engineering (Environmental) – when completing your application.
What you will study

Individual Dissertation 60 credits – a major, comprehensive, innovative piece of investigative individual research.
Advanced Structural Mechanics 20 credits – advanced understanding of structural mechanics to solve engineering problems, including seismic and finite element analysis.
Advanced Structural Design 20 credits – understanding design of advanced structures and exercising appropriate judgement, based on requirements of client/multidiscipline design team and sustainability.
Design of Timber & Masonry Structures 20 credits – develop design techniques for Timber and Masonry construction and embodied carbon assessment.
Carbon Management 20 credits – develop knowledge and deepen understanding of Low Carbon Technologies and Sustainable methods.
Environmental Management 20 credits – broadening awareness of current and established environmental management issues and practice, to critically evaluate strategies for business improvement.
Environmental Engineering 20 credits – develop an understanding of environmental processes and environmental engineering and the impact they have on public health.
This postgraduate degree in Civil Engineering is delivered in three major blocks that offer an intensive but flexible learning pattern, with two entry opportunities for applicants each year – February and September.
You will learn through lectures, tutorials, and seminars, as well as guest lectures and seminars with prominent industry experts. You will complete a research dissertation on a chosen topic of interest using our excellent laboratory facilities and specialist support.
Some modules are assessed through coursework, others by a combination of design projects and a formal examination.
