Institution Loughborough University
Department Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering
Study type Taught


Civil engineers tackle some of the greatest challenges in contemporary society. They design and build structures and infrastructure for an increasingly urbanised global population in an ever-changing environment that needs to address the carbon challenge.

Our Civil Engineering MSc programme develops advanced numerical, analytical, design and management skills that are applied to real-life engineering problems. These skills, combined with specific technical expertise and critical thinking, will enable you to pursue a career in civil engineering, progress towards becoming a professionally qualified engineer, or choose from a wide range of other career options, including further doctoral study.

Upon graduation, you are likely to be part of a team working on a variety of infrastructure systems and buildings, from bridges and railways to skyscrapers and sports stadia. The unique multidisciplinary nature of this programme and School will allow you to secure roles in other disciplines that contribute to the construction cycle. Leading industry experts enrich the learning experience by giving guest lectures and providing real-life challenges.

The School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering is one of four Royal Academy of Engineering Centres of Excellence in Sustainable Building Design, and one of the most highly funded built environment groups by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The School hosts the Building and Industrial Services Pipework Academy (BISPA), which is a collaboration with global steel manufacturer Tata Steel and the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE). This uniquely holistic view of civil engineering makes it best placed for developing graduates that meet the increasing demands of the sector.

We have recently invested £6 million in building expansion and development, which includes new dedicated study areas and computer resources. Our students benefit from access to our excellent facilities, including our 3,000m2 laboratory and one of the fastest high-performance computing clusters in the UK.
