Civil Engineering

The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

A discipline of professional engineering, civil engineering has to do with designing, constructing and maintaining manmade structures such as dams, canals and roads. The term “civil” is used to distinguish this field from military engineering.

Benefits of the programme The intent is to equip candidates for a career in the welding industry, this implying an understanding of the practice of welding engineering underpinned by sound science. Curriculum Outline / Modules taught The MEng in Welding Wits is made up of 12 courses divided into four main modules. The modules are welding processes, welding metallurgy, welded joint design and fabrication, and applications and case studies. Closing dates Whilst late entries can be considered the desirable closing date for those completing the whole course is mid February. Whilst those who complete individual stand alone courses can register through the year, if individual courses are taken as part of, say a GDE, the February registration applies.
