Will a civil engineering MSc, PhD or EngD help your career?

Should I do a masters in civil engineering, structural engineering or a related engineering field, such as sustainability?

A masters degree in engineering guarantees you’ve met all the educational requirements for chartership. But beyond that is it worth it? Will it do anything for your career?

  • Civil engineering firms usually prefer to hire graduates with a masters-level qualification
  • More bursaries and research grants for an MSc (taught or research) available
  • For specialised engineering jobs, an MSc in a relevant subject often tips the scales in your favour
