The programme builds upon the engineering knowledge and skills developed at 1st degree level with a stimulating and challenging postgraduate programme of study that will extends your understanding and analytical skills. You will develop a critical awareness of current issues in the field, as informed by ongoing research from LJMU's Built Environment and Sustainable Technologies (BEST) Research Institute. You will also evaluate the latest research and design methodologies, increase your understanding of ethical issues related to civil engineering, and your responsibilities with regards to sustainable construction. In addition, you will develop greater understanding of management principles and management strategies and be able to critically evaluate design, construction and operation within the context of both regulation and current developments. Importantly, you will also be able to apply appropriate technical solutions to the analysis and evaluation of complex design problems.
