UCL (University College London)

Course Introduction

The course now offers five additional specialist routes which reflect the expertise within the department and expanding career paths of civil engineers. This programme is for those students who wish to combine a general MSc in the subject with the related discipline of geographic information science.

Course Modules

GIS principles and technology; principles of spatial analysis; web and mobile GIS; project management (professional development module); advanced soil mechanics; advanced structures; anatomy of the railway; applied building information modelling; building engineering physics; coastal engineering; data analysis; engineering and international development; environmental modelling; environmental systems; finite element modelling and numerical methods; introduction to seismic design of structures; natural and environmental disasters; principles and practices of surveying; roads and underground infrastructure; structural dynamics; systems, society and sustainability; urban flooding and drainage.

Course Additional Entry

A minimum of an upper 2nd Class UK Honours degree in civil or structural engineering or a closely related subject, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Applicants who do not meet the standard entry criteria may be asked to provide a portfolio demonstrating existing engineering and design skills. For non'civil or structural engineering candidates we offer a graduate diploma in civil engineering, recognised by our accrediting body (the joint board of moderators), which can be used as a pre'qualifying year for the civil engineering Master's and its specialist routes.
