Aims of the Programme The aim of this programme is to produce Civil Engineers who are equipped to play leading roles in a professional capacity in both industry and academia, and who have developed the technical, intellectual and transferable skills needed to underpin their education and continuing professional development.
MEng graduates will have a systematic knowledge and understanding of Civil Engineering, including developments and problems at the forefront of the discipline. They will be able to evaluate current research critically, and be original in the application of their knowledge, proposing new hypotheses as appropriate.
Typical MEng graduates will be able to deal with complex issues, making sound judgements in the absence of complete information, and will be able to communicate their conclusions clearly to specialist and non-specialist audiences. They will be self-motivating and able to act autonomously, and will have the qualities and transferable skills necessary to exercise initiative and personal responsibility, to make decisions in complex and unpredictable situations, and to have the independent learning ability required for continuing professional development.
MEng graduates from this programme will have work experience, a high level of numeracy, and skills in problem solving, team working, and communication and information technology, will equip graduates particularly for successful careers within the process and allied industries.
