Careers: Courses

Imperial College's Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering has just extended its successful range of MSc courses by adopting a more modular system of studying and adding business management and sustainable development options. Under the department's new modular MSc programme there are now 25 different course options open to postgraduate students which the University hopes will prove attractive to more students.

'Previously we offered nine technical MSc programmes and some joint subject courses which involved studying 75% of the modules from one subject and 25% from the other, ' says Imperial College professor of geomechanics and MSc programme director Richard Jardine. 'Now students can choose which modules they want to study alongside their core subject to build a multidisciplinary MSc that suits their needs.'

The move follows a survey of students and industry which revealed that many felt that a postgraduate degree would be more useful if it incorporated a wider range of subjects. 'The technical content of each module is still high and is aimed to attract both students with non-engineering first degrees and those already working in the field but looking to specialise, ' says Jardine.
