This integrated masters course provides the ideal platform to gain broad-based technical experience that will enable you to enter design, construction or operations roles within the civil engineering industry.

As part of this course, you’ll:

  • Build the foundations for a diverse and interesting future in civil engineering
  • Develop knowledge of the mathematical and scientific principles and methodologies which underpin civil engineering
  • Apply your knowledge to real-world problems
  • Learn to produce innovative solutions using technical literature and industry codes of standard and practice using investigation and evaluation of design-related engineering issues
  • Gain detailed knowledge and technical proficiency in health and safety, sustainable, environmental and economic development, and the frameworks in which they operate
  • Equip yourself with the problem-solving skills to work on projects such as designing large structures and infrastructure including roads, water supply and drainage, bridges, airports, tunnels, and sea and flood defences 
     
 

You’ll learn using a variety of tools, including case studies and design-based exercises that will enable you to develop applied skills, participate in critical analysis and practise your presentation skills.

Our modern, well-equipped laboratories will give you the chance to get involved with industry-standard tools and testing. We'll show you how to examine the strength of materials for structures and understand the latest geotechnical and structural analysis software packages. 

We can offer you great links with industry, thanks to our teaching team, who have great experience across different areas of engineering.

Guest lectures from industry professionals will also form part of your programme and you will be encouraged to become an active member of the Institution of Civil Engineers.
