Program Description:

Civil engineering is a broad field that spans a number of branches including subjects such as Structural Engineering, Water Resources Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Transportation Engineering and Geotechnical Engineering. This new MSc course at the University of Bradford is designed to provide advanced civil and structural engineering education to meet the aspirations of students needs. The course is designed in a way to address a balanced curriculum between advanced technical and design skills, and research skills. The School of Engineering, Design and Technology has particular research strengths in Water Engineering; Acoustics; Structural Engineering; Geotechnics; Sustainability; and Computer Modelling and Design. We conduct this research jointly with many companies including Yorkshire Water, Thames Water, Bersche-rolt, Transport Research Laboratory, AngloFelt Industries, Lime Technology, Castle Cement, Ibstock Bricks and many others. Postgraduates will be able to move directly into responsible roles in employment with a minimum of additional training. The table of the curriculum shows the core (C) and optional (O) units for this programme, which extends over 12 months. It is made up of a taught element of 100 credits and an individual research project element of 20+60 credits for MSc students and 20 credits for PG/Dip students. Where appropriate, the 60 credit project for MSc students can be completed in Industry or at an overseas University. Modules: Interdisciplinary Competitive Design (C) PG Dip.
