Civil Engineering

This course aims to give students a deep knowledge and understanding of civil engineering to develop their careers within the construction profession. Students develop their capabilities for investigation, analysis and design in the context of a dynamic global environment where complexity of factors such as sustainability and environmental impact have a significant impact on engineering processes. In addition, over 50 per cent of the course is concerned with deepening abilities in technical and project management subjects. Students demonstrate self-direction and originality in dealing with complex open-ended non-conventional problems and undertake critical analysis to provide substantive conclusions in the civil engineering field in a manner associated with that of being a professional engineer.

Entry requirements

A minimum of 2.2 Honours degree in a civil engineering discipline, or equivalent is normally required. Graduates from other engineering disciplines can also apply, however they would have to go through an interview process prior to securing admission to the course. Applicants with substantial professional experience in related fields with a qualification equivalent to at least Higher National Certificate/Diploma will also be considered. These candidates will need to produce evidence of the professional experience (i.e. references, portfolio of projects, etc.), and will have to attend an interview. Minimum English competency is the standard MSc entry: IELTS 6.0 or equivalent.
