Civil Engineering, M.Sc.
The MSc in Civil Engineering builds on our renowned research expertise and industrial experience in current aspects of Civil Engineering. It is designed both for people pursuing a higher degree soon or immediately after obtaining their first degree, and for those with considerable work experience.
Dundee is a pre-eminent centre for Civil Engineering with internationally-renowned research groups in concrete technology, fluid mechanics, geotechnical engineering, lightweight and deployable structures, and construction management.
Top for research
Civil Engineering at Dundee is ranked top in Scotland for research. You will have the opportunity to engage with leading edge research at Dundee, meaning we attract students of the highest calibre and our graduates are highly sought after by employers worldwide. Students studying on our masters programmes benefit from our renowned research expertise and industry experience.
Our state-of-the-art facilities
We have recently undertaken a major upgrade of laboratory facilities particularly in the areas of Concrete Technology and Geotechnical Engineering, thanks to an investment of £1.8M from the European Regional Development Fund and the University to create the Scottish Marine Renewables Test (SMART) Centre for Concrete and Geotechnics. This has resulted in new state-of-the-art commercial grade experimental equipment being commissioned, strengthening our capability in these research areas and enhancing our capacity for experimentally focused work.
The University of Dundee is home to a state-of-the-art geotechnical centrifuge, only one of three in Europe capable of earthquake replication. The purpose of the centrifuge is to enable small scale models of geotechnical structures such as tunnels, foundations or retaining walls to be tested under the high-stress conditions experienced by these structures at full scale. This is achieved by increasing gravity. The Dundee centrifuge is 3m radius and capable of carrying models up to 1000 kg mass and at accelerations up to 100 times earth’s gravity. Whilst “in flight”, various additional loads can be applied to the models, including earthquake shaking, large scale fault rupture, environmental wetting/drying, and translational and rotational loading can be applied using our robot.
