Introduction

Why choose this course?

This industry-accredited course is tailored to civil and/or structural engineers wishing to become senior managers in both consulting engineering and contracting organisations. It is ideal for graduate engineers starting their careers in the construction industry.

You will study the design of both standard and innovative structures and substructures, in normal and earthquake contexts, using steel and concrete. You will also examine the financial, legal and contractual aspects of the construction process. Gaining knowledge of management techniques and contract administration, you will practise the supervision of construction projects.

Experts at leading civil engineering and construction companies contribute to the course, enabling you to develop a wider perspective and understanding of the worldwide issues facing the construction industry. Through an industry-relevant dissertation, you will be able to extend your knowledge in a specialist area.

Accreditation

Further learning programme – MSc

This degree is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM), comprising the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Institute of Highway Engineers and the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation, on behalf of the Engineering Council, 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.

It should be noted that candidates completing the MSc who hold an underpinning accredited IEng degree or a non-accredited bachelor's degree will need to apply for an academic assessment to determine if they meet the educational base for CEng registration.

Our MSc course in Structural Design and Construction Management with Sustainability is accredited until 2023 entry.

Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.

The MSc programme delivered at our partner institutions is not currently accredited by the JBM.
