The MSc Sustainable Construction programme provides students with technologically advanced knowledge, problem-solving skills and a comprehensive understanding of the key aspects of sustainability in civil engineering construction.
The MSc Sustainable Construction programme gives you advanced knowledge, problem-solving skills, and a comprehensive understanding of civil engineering construction.
During your studies, you will become more aware of the current and future challenges of sustainability strategies and their integration in civil engineering. You will also optimise prospective solutions using emerging science and technologies.
The programme includes two semesters of taught modules, assessed by coursework and examination, and followed by a research dissertation in the third semester.
For candidates who have already acquired a partial CEng accredited undergraduate first degree, this programme meets the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer, as accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators.
By the time you graduate from the MSc Sustainable Construction, you will have:
The completion of additional learning activities is required to obtain your master degree. The programme includes a total of 600 hours of Additional Learning Activities, most of which are chosen individually by students. Normally, required ALA hours will be distributed evenly across each semester, amounting to 200 hours per semester. Part-time programmes will normally require 100 to 150 hours per semester. They should normally be spread equally over teaching semesters and the summer and winter breaks.
Graduates from this programme are well-prepared for careers in the environmental construction and management sectors, governmental regulatory agencies and environmental consultancies. Our alumni work in positions such as green infrastructure engineer, water resources engineer, construction site engineer, environmental consultant engineer and sustainable technology developer.
Some graduates may wish to pursue a PhD degree in the areas that they are passionate about. The MSc Sustainable Construction programme can be used as Further Learning, which is needed for registering as a chartered engineer.
