Study the theory, design and management of key civil engineering subjects in a zero-carbon economy.
This is a new course for 2022 and subject to final approval. Applications will open once it has been approved. Contact us to find out more.
From geotechnical to water, structural or materials engineering, study a master's that focuses on the future of civil engineering in industry and the world. Taught in the context of a future zero-carbon economy, you'll learn the theory and design aspects to help you navigate the new challenges up ahead successfully.
Throughout the course, a mix of theory, practical and collaborative activities help you advance your professional, design and research skills. Part of this is working in multidisciplinary design teams to solve the big problems facing the world right now. You’ll also have the opportunity to carry out a large research project with support and supervision from our academic specialists.
To help prepare you for the workplace, some of your learning experience and design work will be with students on other construction-related master’s here at Bath. This brings you into contact with a more diverse set of people and skills, echoing what it is like to work professionally in industry.
Learn from experts in the field
You’ll learn from academics actively researching across the civil engineering spectrum with expertise in materials, low-carbon and sustainable development, and water, structural and geotechnical engineering. Their experience and international collaborations feed into teaching and contribute to your learning experience. Our research was ranked 1st in the UK in the Architecture and the Built Environment submission in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework.
Use specialist facilities
We have a range of specialist facilities to support your studies. Our structures, concrete, timber, advanced materials, and geomaterials laboratories contain equipment that exceed industry standards. You’ll also have access to high-quality computing and teaching facilities.
Your future starts here
We’ve worked with our industrial partners to make sure this course prepares you with the expertise valued by employers and relevant to the future of construction.
Our master’s students have been recruited to graduate positions in some of the top UK and overseas engineering and design companies, including AECOM, Atkins and Foster & Partners. Others have gone on to further study on PhD courses with us or other leading institutions.
