Civil engineering develops and improves facilities and services that society needs – from the supply of clean water and energy to the design and construction of roads, railways and stations. Solving problems of air, land and water pollution and protecting society against natural disasters are also important aspects of civil engineering.
Engineering graduates are in high demand from recruiting companies worldwide.
This 18-month MSc course has been designed to meet the needs of a broad range of engineering industries. As a Masters student, you’ll gain the specialist and generic skills necessary to lead future developments, with practical experience provided by the industrial placement or project.
The course has a significant design element based on the most up-to-date specialist design guidelines. This includes a major design project that integrates acquired knowledge and acts as a platform for structured self-learning.
First or upper second-class Honours degree from a UK university (or equivalent overseas qualification) in any civil engineering discipline.
Applicants with a degree in environmental engineering, earth sciences, mathematics, physics and mechanical engineering may also be considered.
Lower degree classifications might be considered if there is strength elsewhere (for example, relevant work experience, excellent final project/dissertation, very strong academic letter of reference, very strong application statement linking with career goals.)
