Course content

Become the best you can be in the construction industry with an accredited Master’s in Civil Engineering from Coventry University.

Accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators as approved ‘further learning’ for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status, our Civil Engineering courses provide topical and industry-focused postgraduate education to enhance career opportunities in civil engineering.

For holders of a CEng accredited Bachelor’s degree, successful completion of the MSc Civil Engineering automatically meets the educational base for Chartered Engineer status. A slightly modified version of this course – the ‘Technical Route’ – is available for holders of Institute of Engineering (IEng) accredited degrees, who upon successful completion will need to apply for an academic assessment to be formally approved for CEng. They may be required to complete extra modules if their Bachelor degree is deemed to be not technical enough.

Coventry offers cutting-edge facilities in our High Performance Engineering Centre, including construction site management simulation. We have excellent industry links and the course is developed and delivered by academic lecturers and guest speakers in collaboration with civil engineering employers, such as Underground Professional Services and Morgan Sindall.
