Program Description

MSc Civil Engineering

Leeds Beckett University

The growing demand for infrastructure to sustain modern societies and underpin economic and social development requires creative solutions from all engineering professionals. This course will give you the skills to shape and maintain the world around us.

You might be a graduate from our BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering course, or perhaps someone with a BEng qualification. We will help you move your career forward so you can play a leading role in the design, construction and maintenance of a broad range of infrastructure projects.

One of the key objectives of our course is preparing you for chartered status. We will develop your technical ability, understanding of engineering principles, commercial flair and environmental awareness. In addition, you'll look at contractual issues, health and safety, business functionality, communication skills, report writing, code of conduct and your responsibility to a team.

We are seeking Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) accreditation for Leeds based delivery, subject to final output, from Autumn 2013.
