Why study this course
MSc Civil Engineering and Management graduates will go on to careers world-wide in consultancy, contracting industry, or choose a career in industry that requires a good understanding of civil engineering issues. They may also resume existing careers or enter new branches of the wider engineering industry.
The University of Birmingham has six decades' worth of experience delivering Masters level education to students from across the world in more specialised areas of civil engineering. This new programme meets the need for general, flexible civil engineering learning to Masters level for future Chartered and Incorporated engineers.
Being flexible in its nature, this MSc in Civil Engineering and Management permits every student to tailor the programme of studies to suit their own chosen career, benefiting from the range of specialist modules available to all MSc students. Flexibility also means that graduates of non-civil engineering disciplines may be eligible for study. Please enquire if this applies in your particular case and the School will make an assessment based on previous study and experience.

Key Information Set (KIS)
Key Information Sets (KIS) are comparable sets of information about full or part time undergraduate courses and are designed to meet the information needs of prospective students.
From September 2012 all KIS information will be published on the Unistats website and can also be accessed via the small advert, or ‘widget’, below. On the Unistats website you will be able to compare all the KIS data for each course with data for other courses.
The development of Key Information Sets (KIS) forms part of HEFCE’s work to enhance the information that is available about higher education. It will give you access to robust, reliable and comparable information in order to help you make informed decisions about what and where to study.
The KIS contains information which prospective students have identified as useful, such as student satisfaction, graduate outcomes, learning and teaching activities, assessment methods, tuition fees and student finance, accommodation and professional accreditation.
