MSc - Master of Science
Civil Engineering Structural Engineering
The programme is designed for graduates and professionals involved in the civil engineering, structural engineering and construction sectors who wish to deepen and broaden their technical knowledge and understanding of specialised areas of civil and structural engineering.
You enhance your technical skills in various core areas of civil engineering that are in demand in the construction industry, such as advanced structural design, advanced geotechnics, and water and waste water treatment processes. You also further develop your conceptual understanding of critical aspects of structural engineering, such as advanced structural analysis and design, and become familiar with complex analysis and design techniques, modelling the causes and solutions of problems involving the real behaviour of structures. You also acquire an advanced knowledge and understanding of the design of structures under dynamic and earthquake conditions. Advanced project planning and visualisation methods, such as building information modelling, are also integrated into the course. The 60-credit dissertation gives you the opportunity to conduct a supervised research project developing original knowledge in a specific area of civil or structural engineering.
Our MSc Civil and Structural Engineering is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (representing the ICE, IStructE, IHE and CIHT) as a technical master's. This means it meets the requirements for further learning for Chartered Engineer (CEng) under the provisions of UK-SPEC for candidates who have already acquired a CEng-accredited BEng (Hons) undergraduate first degree. By completing this professionally accredited MSc you benefit from an easier route to professional membership or chartered status. It also helps improve your job prospects, enhancing your career and earning potential. Some companies show preference for graduates who possess a professionally accredited qualification.
How you are assessed
Assessment varies from module to module. The assessment methodology could include in-course assignments, presentations or formal examinations. For your MSc project, you prepare a dissertation.
The course will equip you with the relevant technical and transferrable skills to pursue a career as a civil/structural engineer or technical manager with leading multidisciplinary consultancies, contractors, as well as research and government organisations.
