About

The Civil Engineering MSc course offered by Durham University will provide graduates with advanced knowledge and understanding of Civil Engineering in three ways. Firstly high-quality taught modules will introduce advanced Civil Engineering topics such as structural design and highways engineering. 

Overview

Durham University has many researchers tackling the challenge of ensuring sustainability and resilience of the infrastructure that underpins our society and economy.  This sustainable infrastructure will form the topic of many of the substantial projects that you will undertake and you are uniquely placed to take advantage of a broad range of expertise in a general engineering department. 

Course Structure

The Civil Engineering MSc course offered by Durham University consists of six core modules to provide advanced engineering education in Civil Engineering technologies. In addition to these taught modules, you will also complete an individual civil design project working with professional engineers and a major, individual research and development project working closely with an academic in your chosen subject area

This is a 12-month full-time course beginning at the start of the academic year and finishing with you submitting a report and completing an oral examination on your chosen research and development project. The course consists of four core modules to provide a solid education in a broad range of Civil Engineering technologies. A choice of one from two optional modules allows you to choose a study course most suited to your interests and needs. The modules include lecture courses, a design project and an individual research and development project.

You will select one of two optional modules. These modules typically include 40 hours of lectures in addition to coursework and laboratory experiments, allowing you to develop research skills in parallel with lectures. The modules are designed to increase your understanding in either analysis of structures and geomatics (land surveying and Geographical Information Systems) [Structures and Geomatics 3] or the remediating of polluted environments and open channel flows [Environmental Engineering 3]. You are advised to select the module which you feel would best support your learning needs.

General requirements

  • Subject requirements, level and grade

To be admitted to the MSc programme in Civil Engineering, you need the equivalent of a UK Honours degree to at least an upper second class standard (2:1). This should normally be in an appropriate Engineering or Engineering-related subject including modules in Geotechnics, Mechanics and Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists.  Although in some instances we can consider industrial or other relevant experience if you have a different first degree.

If you are an international student who does not meet the requirements for direct entry to this degree, you may be eligible to take a pre-Masters pathway programme at the Durham University International Study Centre.
