    Our Civil Engineering programme aims to provide graduate engineers with advanced capabilities and in-depth knowledge in a range of specialised aspects of civil engineering. It is also designed to update the technical skills of practising engineers engaged in the planning, design, construction and operation of civil engineering works and to contribute to a personal professional development programme.

    This programme is particularly useful in providing the necessary further learning for engineers working in the construction industry who hold related first degrees such as engineering geology or construction management.

    Five study streams can be accessed by students on the Civil Engineering programme Bridge Engineering, Construction Management, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering and Water Engineering.

    The programme is organised and delivered by University staff, as well as practising engineers from consultancies and local authorities.

    Why Surrey?
    Five study streams can be accessed by students on the Civil Engineering programme Bridge Engineering, Construction Management, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering and Water Engineering.

    The programme is organised and delivered by University staff, as well as practising engineers from consultancies and local authorities.

    Programme length:
    * Full-time: 12 months
    * Part-time: 24-60 months
    * Distance-learning: 24-60 months

    Module overview
    The modular arrangement is intended to tailor the programme to your individual needs and provide maximum flexibility in terms of attendance of full-time and part-time students.

    The majority of modules run for ten weeks and comprise approximately 30 hours (three hours per week) of class time and 120 hours of self-study and assignments.

    Successful completion of four modules is required for a student to gain a Postgraduate Certificate, eight modules for a Postgraduate Diploma. Eight modules and a dissertation are required for the award of an MSc.

    Individual modules can be used to contribute towards a continuing professional development programme.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.


    program_requirements

    A minimum of 60 per cent in an honours degree in civil engineering or equivalent accredited to CEng, or a minimum of 70 per cent in an honours degree in civil engineering accredited to IEng. Overseas equivalent qualifications are also welcome. Alternatively, at least five years relevant industrial experience (preferably codified design) or a professional qualification (for example, CEng). Strength in geotechnical engineering also needs to be demonstrated for this programme.English language requirements * IELTS minimum overall: 6.5 * IELTS minimum by component: 6.0We offer intensive English language pre-sessional courses, designed to take you to the level of English ability and skill required for your studies here.
