About this course
The programme is designed for graduates and professionals involved in the civil engineering, structural engineering and construction sectors who wish to deepen and broaden their technical knowledge and understanding of specialised areas of civil and structural engineering.
You enhance your technical skills in various core areas of civil engineering that are in demand in the construction industry, such as advanced geotechnics and river and coastal engineering. You also further develop your conceptual understanding of critical aspects of structural engineering, such as advanced structural analysis and design, and become familiar with complex analysis and design techniques, modelling the causes and solutions of problems involving the real behaviour of structures. You also acquire an advanced knowledge and understanding of the design of structures under dynamic and earthquake conditions. Advanced project planning and visualisation methods, such as building information modelling, are also integrated into the course.
- An upper second class (2.1) honours UK degree in civil engineering or equivalent qualification.
- A lower second class (2.2) honours degree may be considered if you can evidence significant relevant experience.
- Non-UK students must also meet the University's minimum English language requirements.
