Civil engineering problems require the application of analytical, decision making and critical thinking skills, this course will provide students with the technical knowledge and experience needed to develop these skills. It will also equip students with a range of transferable skills; an ideal combination for a leading career in civil engineering.
The MSc Civil Engineering provides a comprehensive programme of study across a range of subject areas. You may prefer to choose a more specialised approach by adopting a subject theme and choosing specific modules in the first two semesters with a research project related to the theme.
These subject themes are as follows: highways and transportation engineering; structural engineering.
However, it is possible to choose a more generalised programme of study across these subject areas for the award of MSc Civil Engineering.
This course is also taught at The University of Nottingham's Malaysia Campus.

Presessional English for Academic Purposes
The Centre for English Language Education (CELE) runs a 5-week Engineering English language and study skills course. This course isdesigned in collaboration with the Faculty of Engineering to prepare students going onto engineering programmes.
If you are close to the English language level you need to go on to your MSc course and you meet the entry requirements for the relevant CELE course, you may be eligible for a joint offer. This means that:
- you only need one TIER 4 visa and CAS
- you take a 10 or 5-week English Language and Academic Skills preparation course, and then go onto your MSc course
- you have a guaranteed place on the MSc course
- your progression to the MSc is automatic, provided you attend and complete all the coursework
For more details, please visit the CELE website or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
