MSC Civil Engineering
This is a broad based civil engineering course covering the areas of structures, geotechnics, water engineering, transportation and conservation.
The technical modules of the course aim to develop the understanding and application of advanced theoretical contents of the specialist subject.
Structural topics are taught in the two modules of Finite Elements and Stress Analysis, and Advanced Structural Design. The interaction of geotechnics and structures is covered in the Soil-Structure Engineering module. The Water Resources Systems Management module looks into the water engineering aspects. The transportation field is studied in the Highway and Railway Engineering and Operations module. The final module, Asset Management and Project Appraisal of Infrastructures examines the methods, merits and economics of repairs of existing structures.
