Department of Civil Engineering
This 12 month course is offered by the Department of Civil Engineering but benefits from the research knowledge and expertise of staff in the Nottingham Geospatial Institute (NGI).
It is aimed at geography and science graduates, industrial practitioners, military and government personnel.
Data collection and integration are fundamental to environmental management, and technological advances enable us to gather an increasing amount of information from terrestrial measurements, airborne sensors and satellite-based systems. Some techniques enable continuous monitoring and some allow rapid processing from regular data gathering campaigns. Underpinning all of this is the need for an understanding of co-ordinate systems, positioning techniques and geographical information systems.
The course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), and we are an Approved Learning Provider for the HM Forces Enhanced Learning Credit Scheme, which applies to this course.
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:

Once you have completed the core modules, you will undertake a supervised dissertation over three months, which will give you a great deal of practical experience in data acquisition, processing and analysis. This independent research aims to stimulate creative thinking and improve your powers of critical analysis.
For details on our modules, please see the module catalogue.
The modules we offer are inspired by the research interests of our staff and as a result may change for reasons of, for example, research developments or legislation changes. This list is an example of typical modules we offer, not a definitive list.
