How would you improve urban resilience to earthquakes? Could you design and implement a clean water solution in a humanitarian crises? Become a Master of Engineering with this enhanced accredited course and develop all the practical and academic skills required to address these challenges. This four-year course will give you all the technical skills and intellectual know how to be a civil engineer in a constantly changing world. Our MEng course focusses on infrastructure engineering and will give you the practical skills and experience needed to work on multimillion pound infrastructure projects. You’ll develop crucial mathematical, technical and design skills that all civil engineers need whilst taking a more holistic view of the overall design of a built environment which is resilient to future challenges. Our research philosophy focusses on future cities and how infrastructure and communities need to adapt and transform themselves in response to future challenges such as climate change, resource and energy scarcity and an aging and increasing population. Such challenges cannot be tackled by one discipline alone and professionals across the sector need to collaborate to create smart and innovative solutions. As a graduate of this department you will be ideally placed to work in such multidisciplinary teams at the front line in responding to these global challenges. You’ll become a creative problem solver and a confident communicator, able to work well independently and in a team. Our facilities are the perfect places to test and research different materials and designs. You’ll work in specialist labs for geotechnics, hydraulics, structures, engineering materials and concrete testing. You'll go out on site visits, and hear guest lecturers from industry. You might even want to enhance your skills and CV by doing a work placement year. This course includes, at a subsidised cost, a week long residential field trip to Constructionarium in the first year. Constructionarium provides a "hands-on" construction experience for students; where participants construct scaled down versions of bridges, buildings, dams and civil engineering projects from all around the world. The principle is to link academic institutes with industry and to ensure that the students are able to apply the knowledge they have gained in a practical, safe and relevant environment.
Year one, core modules: Civil Engineering Project 1, Engineering Skills 1, Introduction to Civil Engineering, Engineering and Analysis Essentials. Year two, core modules: Civil Engineering Analysis Project, Ruskin Module, Hydraulics and Geotechnics, Advanced Civil Engineering Skills, Structural Analysis. Work placement (optional placement year). Year three, core modules: Civil Engineering Design Project, Engineering Structures, Highways Design for Engineers, Materials and Manufacture, Design Methods for Sustainable Buildings. Year four, core modules: Urban Design Strategies, Sustainability and Environmental Management, Corporate Management for Civil Engineers, Urban Resilience and Disaster Risk Management.
There is a holistic approach to assessment that ensures the learning outcomes have been met. Assessment methods vary, depending on the nature of the module and the type of skill being evaluated. The details of the type, extent and duration of the assessments are provided in the Module Guide for each module. The range of assessment methods may be summarised as follows: Group work and presentations Design exercises and examples Coursework Timed assignments Production of drawings Projects Practical and laboratory work Unseen examinations Dissertation/major project
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.
