UCL (University College London)

Course Introduction

The course now offers 5 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 surveying.

Course Modules

Core modules: data analysis; principles and practices of surveying; mapping science; project management (professional development module). Options: advanced soil mechanics; advanced structures; anatomy of a railway; applied building information modelling; building engineering physics; coastal engineering; engineering and international development; environmental modelling; environmental systems; finite element modelling and numerical methods; GIS principles and technology; introduction to seismic design of structures; natural and environmental disasters; 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.
