Course Summary

The Civil Engineering Graduate Diploma enables applicants with a degree in a related subject (for example mathematics, physics or geology) to take a qualifying year before moving onto a Civil or Structural Engineering MSc programme. This conversion programme offers a unique opportunity to be awarded an accredited level 7 Civil Engineering MSc after two years of study. Opening your career path to become a chartered civil engineer. This bespoke programme provides grounding in fluids, materials, soils and structures that are essential to any career as a Civil Engineer. The modules are taken from our second and third year BEng/MEng Engineering (Civil) programme. In addition, to the taught modules you will work in pairs on a civil engineering research project. This programme is used as a pre-qualifying year for students, whose first degree is not in civil or structural engineering, to progress onto either the Civil Engineering MSc or Earthquake Engineering and Disaster Management MSc. This pre-qualifying year is recognised by the Joint Board of Moderators (ICE, IStructE etc) and offers a unique opportunity to become a Chartered Engineer once you have completed an accredited MSc (UCL Civil Engineering or Earthquake Engineering with Disaster Management). At the start of the programme your application will be sent to the JBM for assessment by the Individual Case Committee to ensure that your academic background is suitable for Charter ship. Civil engineering graduates are readily employed by consultancies, construction companies and government departments. Students who complete both this pre-qualifying year and a Civil Engineering MSc or an Earthquake Engineering and Disaster Management MSc, have excellent career prospects with leading civil and structural engineering companies.
