Course summary

This MSc in Civil Engineering with Industrial Practice is ideal for graduates looking to advance their career prospects in engineering and the construction industry. This two-year civil engineering master's programme combines the technical level and skills of an accredited Master’s degree, with further enhancement of employability skills and the opportunity to gain a whole year of work based learning and industrial experience. The academic course is aimed at engineering and technology graduates who would like to top-up their qualifications and continue to the next steps to becoming a Chartered Engineer. You will further develop your specialist knowledge by interacting with our research-active subject experts, discover more about design and management issues that arise in civil engineering and construction and get your own critical insight through your independent research project, so that you can meet the needs and the future challenges of the industry. In addition, the Industrial practice part of the programme offers a practical career development support: You get the opportunity to interact with professional development advisors, peer mentors and employers in training sessions and networking events, which allows you to further develop your professional skills, so to pursue the opportunity of a one-year internship with an related employer in the field. This degree is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) comprising of the Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Institute of Highway Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation and the Permanent Way Institution on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the academic requirement for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng). To hold accredited qualifications for CEng registration, candidates must also hold a Bachelor (Hons) degree that has been accredited as partially meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng).
