MSc Civil and Structural Engineering

This degree is your opportunity to establish or consolidate your career as a civil or structural design engineer.

There is also an opportunity for working professionals to progress towards CEng status through a tailor-made route. This will help you accelerate to the remaining steps of CEng status by working with your employer in the process. This is a unique feature of a Masters course and significantly reduces the period required to achieve Chartered status.
