This MSc aims to equip students with the skills of analysis and design necessary for employment as professional Civil Engineers, and give them a solid academic background for becoming Chartered Engineers. The programme combines integrated design project work with an individual research project in the student's chosen specialist field. What and how will I learn? Students develop an advanced knowledge of Civil Engineering and associated engineering and scientific disciplines. They gain an awareness of the context in which engineering operates, in terms of safety, environmental, social and economic aspects, alongside a wide range of transferable skills, enabling them to develop careers in research and industry. Degree Structure Students undertake courses to the value of 180 credits. The programme consists of a design project (60 credits), one core course (15 credits), three optional courses (45 credits), and a research project (60 credits). Core Modules Civil Engineering Failures and Qualitative Analysis Integrated Design Project Dissertationreport All students undertake an independent research project in a preferred specialist area, which culminates in a dissertation of 10,000 words. Options ONLY ONE OPTION FROM EACH GROUP CAN BE CHOSEN: Group One: Construction Law and the Design Team Group One: Structural Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering Group Two: Environmental Fluid Mechanics Group Two: Financial Aspects of Project Engineering Group Three: Advanced Soil Mechanics Group Three: Transport Studies Group Three: Systems, Society and Sustainability Group Four: Asset Management, Project Planning and Maintenance Group Four: Finite Element Modelling and Numerical Methods Group Five: Design of Roads, Rail, Bridges, Tunnels and Embankments Group Five: Urban Flooding and Drainage Group Five: Coastal Engineering Further details available on subject website: http:www.cege.ucl.ac.ukteachingpostgraduatecivil_engineering The programme is delivered through lectures, tutorials, seminars, laboratory classes and field trips. The design project includes collective and individual studio work, while the research project includes laboratory, computational or field work depending on the nature of the project. Assessment is through exams, coursework, project reports and the research project. Why should I study this degree at UCL? The Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering is an energetic and exciting environment. Students have the advantages of studying in a multi-faculty college with a long tradition of excellence in teaching and research, situated within the heart of one of the world's greatest cities. This MSc covers all the major areas of civil engineering, reflecting the broad range of expertise available within the Department and its strong links with the engineering profession across the UK and beyond. The emphasis on developing skills within a teamwork environment equips students for subsequent professional practice in this field. Your future career There are excellent employment prospects for our graduates. Civil Engineering graduates are readily employed by consultancies, construction companies and government departments. First destinations of recent graduates include: Environment Agency: ICE Graduate Engineer Whitby Bird: Design Engineer University of Cambridge: PhD Engineering Southern Water: Research and Development Officer Arup: Civil Engineer Entry Requirements A minimum of a second-class UK Bachelor's degree in civil or structural engineering or a closely related subject, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Applicants should be able to demonstrate a sound understanding of the principal disciplines within civil engineering. Normally, only candidates with a first degree at upper-second level or higher will be accepted, although applicants with a lower second-class degree supported by good performance in the core subjects (structures, geotechnics, fluids) or extensive work experience coverin
