  • Academic Title
    Disaster Relief & Development Engineering Master in Science by Research
  • Course description
    This course offers the opportunity for study and research within the area of Disaster Relief and Development Engineering. It will appeal to those engineers who wish to research the application of civil engineering principles and methodologies to facilitate the relief and mitigation of world-wide disasters. Students may focus their studies and their research topic on one particular branch of civil engineering appropriate to their interests and/or professional experience.

    Future prospects

    This programme of study is ideal for students wishing to pursue an academic or research-orientated career, and for those seeking employment within the public and private sector.

    Course content

    The taught modules are drawn from the taught MSc courses in Civil Engineering, Civil and Structural Engineering, and Disaster Management and therefore offer a wide choice of options. Staff available for supervising research projects specialise in a similarly wide range of subject areas, including structural mechanics, materials, hydraulics, urban drainage, geotechnology, management, and disaster theory. The course aims to provide an opportunity for gaining a research qualification in Disaster Relief and Development Engineering via a route that is shorter and more flexible than an MPhil or PhD, but which has more research emphasis than a taught Master's. It is suitable for both full-time and part-time students, and is particularly suitable for part-time students in employment who wish to carry out research on a work-related topic.

    Additional support for international students

    Coventry University takes pride in the culture and richness that its international students bring to campus life. Currently over 2,000 international students from some 90 countries are pursuing programmes of study here, with a growing amount enrolling on postgraduate courses. A recent report ranked the University highly in terms of international student numbers, recognising our reputation as a leading international institution.

    To meet the needs of this rapidly growing community within the University's student population, our International Office is on hand to provide assistance on all relevant matters such as visas and immigration. It also serves as an information centre to help international visitors locate the many services and activities both on campus and further afield.
