What will you study?
There are four taught modules and a thesis. Three of the modules are intended to provide you with an understanding of the core management skills needed to make a major contribution within the industry, while one structural design module enables you to broaden and deepen your technical knowledge of specialised civil engineering areas. You will also cover subjects that are both specific and complementary to civil engineering. In addition, you will develop the ability to resolve the broader problems that arise in civil engineering.
The advanced concrete design module is assessed by coursework based on the national university competition organised by The Concrete Centre, the trade body representing the concrete industry in the UK.
