Course Summary

Overview

This technically focused Master's programme provides you with the in-depth knowledge you need to:

  • design innovative structures
  • manage construction in the built environment
  • address the implications of earthquakes and ground challenges

It is suitable for candidates with an undergraduate degree qualification looking to strengthen their technical knowledge and improve their career potential in the sector.

You will be taught by research active staff, ensuring you are taught the latest theory and practice. It also means you’ll have opportunities to work on ongoing research projects.

You will practice by developing designs for real projects. In the design project module you will be guided throughout by our Industrial Royal Academy of Engineering visiting professor from Arup.

The programme is supported by our strong industry links; our Industry Advisory Board, made up of representatives from leading organisations in the engineering sector, informs curriculum development and research. Several members of the board deliver lectures, provide site visits, and mentor and potentially employ our students.

Professional accreditation

This degree is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM: The Institution of Civil Engineers, The Institution of Structural Engineers, The Institution of Highway Engineers and The Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation) 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.

Career prospects

Civil Engineers are key players in both developed and developing nations. They plan, design, operate and maintain our sustainable infrastructures. Sustainable use of materials, resources, and energy, in order to enhance the quality of life, for current and future generations, is a key aim for civil and structural engineers.

Those in this field increasingly need to build on their Bachelor degree qualification and increase their knowledge base to remain competitive. This programme is designed to give you this competitive edge.

Graduates are equipped to enter a wide range of industries such as consulting or contracting, construction, utility providers (such as the water, gas, or electricity companies), the railways, and many other fields.
