  • Objectives
    The Civil Engineering postgraduate programme is organised and delivered by the Faculty's own staff, as well as practising engineers from consultancies and local authorities. Students will be able to choose from a rich menu of specialist civil engineering subjects. Apart from the usual full-time mode, there are also part-time options. This programme may also be studied by distance learning. The programme aims to provide graduate engineers with advanced capabilities in the areas of analysis and design in specialised aspects of civil engineering that are in demand in the industry. It is also designed to update the technical skills of practising engineers engaged in the planning, design and construction of civil engineering works and to contribute to the continuing professional development programme of individual engineers. There are five areas of study within the Civil Engineering programme - Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Bridge Engineering, Construction Management, and Water and Environmental Engineering. Four modules are required for a student to gain a Postgraduate Certificate, eight modules for a Postgraduate Diploma, while eight modules and an individual engineering project are required for the MSc. Individual modules can also be taken on a continuing professional development basis.
