Summary: Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with designing, constructing and maintaining the physical and naturally built environment. Civil engineers build bridges, tunnels, canals, dams and flood protection measures, tall buildings and other large structures. Course details: The next few decades promise to be among the most challenging for the civil engineering community. Progressive urbanisation, increasing populations, on-going economic development, climate change and the persistent risk of extreme events already present many threats to infrastructure. This programme produces industry-ready graduates. It incorporates key aspects of civil engineering such as structures, geotechnics, fluid mechanics, materials and construction management. This integrated master’s course gives you advanced knowledge and understanding in specialist technical subjects. You gain valuable leadership and organisational skills which can enhance your career prospects in a management role. Skilled engineers are highly sought. After the course: Typical roles include construction project management, building/civil engineering for contractors or consultants, architectural practices, local authorities or government agencies. Our recent graduates have been employed by Arup, Birse Civils, Jacobs, WSP Group, Interserve, Atkins Global and Aker Solutions.

Assessment method

You are taught in a variety of methods including lectures, tutorials, case-based learning, workshops and seminar sessions. Technical visits, field courses and attendance at professional meetings supplement your learning experience. You are also expected to have self-study time to prepare assignments, work on projects and revise for assessments. Field courses and site visits are key components of the course, allowing you to see the scale and complexity of construction and to develop practical skills. One module a year involves a compulsory one-week block delivery period of problem-solving, which provides you with an opportunity to enhance your employability skills. This intensive problem-solving week, provides you with an opportunity to focus your attention on particular problems and enhance your team-working and employability skills. Our assessment strategy tests your subject knowledge and independent thought, and provides you with information that will be useful to employers. In-course assessment ranges from practical laboratory reports and engineering calculations, through to using 3D visualisation tools, collaborative project work, and making presentations to practising engineers from industry. We use end examinations within a number of modules in each year.
