Civil Engineering

Students on this course gain advanced knowledge and associated analytical and problem-solving skills in a range of key sub-disciplines of civil engineering, and develop the ability to apply this knowledge in engineering design and to the solution of open-ended and multi-disciplinary problems.

Entry requirements

Entry requirements for postgraduate taught programmes are normally a 2.2 Honours degree or equivalent (eg GPA of 3.0 or above) in a relevant subject unless otherwise specified. For this programme, this would normally mean a degree in Civil Engineering or a very closely related discipline. Additionally, a sound understanding of relevant core engineering principles, such as mathematics, is expected and must be demonstrated in a 2.1 or equivalent in core subject components from the applicants Honours degree. International students with academic qualifications below those required should contact our partner institution, Glasgow International College, who offer a range of pre-Master's courses.

Course modules

Core courses: civil design project; integrated systems design project; optional courses.
Students select a total of 8 courses, at least 5 of which must be from list A: advanced soil mechanics; advanced structural analysis and dynamics; applied engineering mechanics; computational modelling of non-linear problems; introduction to wind engineering; principles of GIS; reclamation of contaminated land; structural concrete.
List B: environmental biotechnology; geotechnical engineering; ground engineering; renewable energy; structural analysis; structural design; transportation systems engineering.
