Engineering - Civil & Infrastructure Engineering - with or without Applied Research

Sustainable development is at the heart of this course. Focusing on design and sustainability, this programme is grounded in technical modules covering waste, water, structural design, utilities, materials, and highways, alongside wider project management skills. You will benefit from our academic research, professional experience, and substantial industry links, including input from leading professionals. A dissertation will further enhance your research skills, building your specialist knowledge and industry links.

Graduate employment opportunities may be found in civil engineering, transportation, public health, or environmental engineering, dealing with key activities such as utilities, construction, design, infrastructure, sustainability, environmental and traffic impacts, and waste management. Recent graduates have found employment in the UK water sector, local consultancies, Australian engineering industries, Scottish local authorities, Irish county councils, and in research posts.

Entry requirements

To apply to our postgraduate taught programmes, you must meet the University's General Entrance Requirements and any course-specific requirements.

These vary depending on the course and are detailed online.

Applicants should either possess an Honours degree or equivalent qualification, in a Civil Engineering or similar area from a recognised institution or an equivalent professional qualification, for MSc entry. Entry to the PgDip may be from a non-honours degree for those seeking chartered status via a 'technically focussed MSc'. Exceptionally, we will admit students with non-engineering related qualifications provided they have significant industry /professional experience. In exceptional circumstances, where an individual has substantial and significant experiential learning, a portfolio of written evidence demonstrating the meeting of the graduate qualities (including subject specific outcomes, specified by the Course Committee) may be considered as an alternative entrance route. Evidence used to demonstrate graduate qualities may not be used for exemption against modules within the programme.
