Course content

The MSc Civil Engineering programme incorporates all of the contemporary key elements of engineering design in the built environment. During their studies, students extend their knowledge and develop a high level of skills in the fields of engineering structures, construction management, geotechnical engineering and innovative construction materials. Students in this programme are educated in the theoretical aspects of the recent advances in those fields, whilst also acquiring a professional approach to the solution of technical problems.

The MSc Civil Engineering programme embraces research-led teaching, where the students are actively engaged by accomplishing technical tasks, either in the form of group work or individual projects. The programme places a great emphasis on independent critical thinking, which is a key feature for the development of professional engineering insight.

This full-time 18-month programme comprises two semesters of taught modules, assessed by coursework and examination, followed by a research dissertation during your third semester. All the modules are delivered by international academic staff who specialise in sustainability and civil engineering. Graduates of this programme, as with all XJTLU masters degrees, earn a University of Liverpool degree that is recognised by the Chinese Ministry of Education.

This degree is accredited by Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired a partial CEng accredited undergraduate first degree.
