Masters in Civil Engineering

Study Civil Engineering Masters Programmes

Civil engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with infrastructures, from planning to designing, construction, operation and maintenance, involving new and existing infrastructures. Civil engineering is vital in everyday life, as it is responsible for buildings, roads, power supplies, transportation and communication systems.

A postgraduate degree in civil engineering will allow you to develop your skills, and build on the knowledge you gained at undergraduate level. The modules you study will cover more specialist and complex areas of civil engineering. These modules could include advanced computer aided design skills, financial decision making, sustainable construction, road asset management, geomechanics, and risk management.

Your degree will be delivered through lectures and seminars, as well as incorporating practical sessions and field trips. Your course will likely be focused on preparing you for employment, and the processes of designing, building and maintaining structures in the real world. You may have the opportunity to take part in a work placement as part of your course.
