Civil Engineering

Research is focussed into 4 main themes, aligned with the core elements of the civil engineering curriculum: Structural engineering; transport engineering; geotechnical engineering; hydraulics.

Entry requirements

Applicants should have a 1st Class or upper 2nd Class undergraduate degree that provides a foundation in the principles of civil engineering and scientific practice. This could include an engineering degree but also environmental sciences and other applied science degrees. To study for an MPhil or PhD, a Masters degree is preferred but not essential. However, applicants without a Masters degree should provide evidence of previous research methods training. We welcome applications from students who may not have formal or traditional entry criteria but who have relevant experience or the ability to pursue the course successfully. The Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) process could help you to make your work and life experience count. The APL process can be used for entry onto courses or to give you exemptions from parts of your course. Two forms of APL may be used for entry: the Accreditation of Prior Certificated Learning (APCL) or the Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL). International and EU students must provide evidence of proficiency in English: IELTS 6.0 band score (with no element below 5.5) or above are proof of this.
