We pride ourselves on our able and enthusiastic research students, and we are constantly seeking to add to our research teams new students who wish to contribute to the advances being made here. We offer a stimulating research environment with structured research training in almost every branch of civil engineering.
This enables our graduates to obtain interesting and rewarding careers, whether in industrial practice, industrial research or academia. Our RAE rating acknowledges our excellence in research.
As a result of our strong research base we are able to offer high quality, research-led postgraduate taught programmes, which include an element of research training, commonly via integration into the research teams, as well as comprehensive teaching in the specialist area.
Our strong research base enables us to offer eight taught programmes leading to the awards of MSc, Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certificate. These programmes may be studied on either a full- or part-time basis. Some modules of the programmes may be studied for continuing professional development.
If you'd like to find out more about the programmes on offer, or to fully understand the difference you could make by joining us, there is no better way than visiting the University at the next open day.
Attending an open day is a chance to explore campus, learn about our courses and most importantly, meet our staff. To explain more, we asked our current students for just some of the reasons why you should attend:
