With the ever increasing environmental challenges, there is strong demand for civil and structural engineers who are practically-skilled in efficient design, green construction and sustainable development and who can play a central role in achieving sustainable adaptation to and mitigation of these challenges.
The MSc Sustainable Civil and Structural Engineering programme provides a specialist, technical Masters-level education in civil and structural engineering.
The programme is designed to embed the knowledge, skills and understanding required to critically assess the function, use and impacts of concrete, steel and alternative construction materials in structural designs and to participate in the design, implementation and evaluation of engineering projects which are truly sustainable, bringing social, economic and environmental benefits to current future generations.
The Sustainable Civil and Structural Engineering MSc provides an opportunity for you to develop advanced specialist knowledge in structural engineering, understand how to address the increasing challenges for the industry and develop your skills for the working environment.
The programme is pending accreditation by the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation and the Institute of Highway Engineers. This programme can also be studied part-time over two years. The same modules are followed and the same total credits are achieved, but these are spread over four semesters at 30 credits per semester. The independent research project (module ENGG660) is chosen in the first year, but the completion deadline is not until the end of the second year, allowing flexibility in timing and distribution of effort over the full duration of the course.
We equip our students for rewarding careers and our graduates have found jobs in a wide range of industries and organisations, both in the UK and abroad.
Programmes include a strong practical element and incorporate the latest academic and industry research, enabling you to work effectively at the forefront of engineering.
When you graduate you can count on the University’s Careers and Employability Service to help you plan your future.
We’ve consistently achieved the highest grades in research assessments and many of our research programmes are supported by industrial companies such:-
- Agusta Westland
- BAE Systems
- National and international bodies such as EPSRC and the European Commission.
