2:1 degree (or international equivalent) in civil engineering or related subject. Applicants need to have studied multiple courses in Structures, Geotechnics and Fluids
Months of entry
This course aims to provide you with the technical knowledge and skills to develop the analytical, decision-making and critical powers required to solve civil engineering problems, along with the transferable skills to enable a leading career in civil engineering.
An innovative feature of the MSc Civil Engineering is that the degree title can be augmented to include a subject theme (in this case, Structural Engineering) by choosing specific modules in the first two semesters and completing a project related to the theme.
As such, you will concentrate on the technical knowledge and skills relevant to the field of structural engineering for the award of MSc Civil Engineering: Structural Engineering.
