The flexible nature of the course also means that graduates from non-civil engineering disciplines may be eligible for study. The taught element of your course takes place between September and May, and your individual research project will be undertaken from May to September. You can transfer from the Postgraduate Diploma to the MSc programme, upon completion of the Diploma, provided you satisfy the MSc requirements.
Being flexible in its nature, the Civil Engineering programme taught at the University of Birmingham permits every student to tailor the programme of studies to suit their own chosen career, benefiting from the range of specialist modules available to all MSc students. Flexibility also means that graduates of non-civil engineering disciplines may be eligible for study.
You will develop a broad knowledge base and understanding of the civil engineering profession and acquire problem-solving, team working, and communication skills; all essential when dealing with complex issues in this multi-disciplinary profession.
Upon graduation, you can choose to begin or resume a career in civil engineering design consultancies, general management/engineering consultancies, civil engineering contractors, construction and structural engineering companies.
Your MSc counts towards achieving Chartered Engineer accreditation.
