Civil Engineering with Industrial Practice MSc

This MSc in Civil Engineering with Industrial Practice is ideal for graduates looking to advance their careers in engineering managerial roles, manufacturing, or commercial enterprise.

This two-year civil engineering master's allows graduates and engineers to update their skills and technical knowledge to serve the future demands of the construction industry.

You'll discover more about civil engineering design and the management issues that arise in construction and civil engineering. You'll also improve your technical, professional and management skills through an independent project and a one-year internship with a related employer in the field.

The course is aimed at engineering and technology graduates who wish to pursue managerial roles in engineering and manufacturing. Students on this course will be able to discuss career options with organisations such as Atkins Global and the Environment Agency and review the next steps to becoming a Chartered Engineer.

  • Work in real-life situations and assess the usefulness of theoretical frameworks and research
  • Experiential learning and critical evaluation of industry best practice against discipline theories
  • Communicate with internal and external stakeholders and different levels of management
  • This popular course at our Medway Campus in Kent has limited availability and numbers will be capped. Apply early to secure your place.

Career Prospects

Will I have a work placement?

The industrial placement lasts approximately one year. This is an opportunity to put into practice the knowledge and experience you've gained during the first year of the master's course plus any previous study or experience. You'll be able to engage with current industrial systems, processes and practices, which contribute to your professional development as a manager in the engineering sector.

Our Faculty Employability Team provides support and guidance. We work with a organisation that specialises in helping students to secure an industrial placement. However, it is your responsibility to secure the placement for your second year. This could be with a local or international employer in a relevant industrial sector.

What sort of careers do graduates pursue?

Civil engineering graduates can join world-class engineering consultants, contractors and clients with established, accredited training programmes and continuing professional development opportunities worldwide.

Do you provide employability services?

We have a team dedicated to enhancing student employment outcomes. This includes an Employer Partnerships Manager, who works with companies to provide placement and employment opportunities.

Our team will also help you understand the jobs market, produce effective CVs, and prepare for a graduate job and placement applications in your final year.
