This is an accredited Masters course in Civil Engineering with taught
modules covering a range of subjects from advanced structural analysis
and design, to management and contractual issues. It is designed for
both engineers in employment and students wishing to pursue further
study at masters level. The course has been developed and will be
delivered in collaboration with civil engineering employers.

A slightly modified version designed specifically for holders of IEng
accredited degrees is code ECT075.

The MSc in Civil Engineering is made up of the following modules:

  • Project Management
  • Construction Contracts and Law
  • Advanced design concepts
  • Finite element analysis of structures
  • Soil-structure interaction
  • Organisational theory and behaviour
  • Experimental methods for materials and structures
  • Integrating project

The course can be studied on a full-time (one year), or part-time
basis ( two years).

You will also carry out an integrating project and an individual
research project*. For full-time students, the integrating project 
is normally team-based, and investigates a real engineering problem.
For part-time students the integrating project is chosen to
specifically  link their work with their studies.

Training in research methods is given in preparation for the research
project. Research topics are chosen in discussion with academic staff,
and a wide range of potential areas within civil engineering and
management are available.

*For holders of IEng degrees course ECT068 has a technically based
research project
