Peirianneg Sifil (MSc) Rhan-amser

Mae datblygiad a chynnydd cymdeithas yn dibynnu i raddau helaeth ar sgiliau, dychymyg ac ymroddiad ei pheirianwyr sifil.

The part-time MSc in Civil Engineering aims to build on the knowledge and skills that you have obtained as an undergraduate and to help prepare you for a career as a consulting civil engineer across the broad spectrum of the professional discipline. The overall aim of this well-established course is to provide a sound scientific, technical and commercial understanding of civil engineering issues and practice.  You will be introduced to the broad nature of civil engineering through the integration of knowledge from structural engineering, geotechnical engineering and water engineering. The course will also provide training in engineering research methods and will develop a range of related transferable skills. You will also develop an appreciation of the principles and activities involved in the day to day management of engineering business units, typical of those within which civil engineering is practised.

Graduates of this course will be able to work as professional and highly proficient engineers with the skills and expertise necessary to work in a range of careers across the field of civil engineering.

Meini prawf derbyn

A 2:2 honours degree in Civil, Structural Architectural Engineering or a similar field from a UK university, or an equivalent international degree qualification. If you have relevant industrial experience we will give your application individual consideration.

Entry to courses in Engineering will be subject to the University requirements for English language.

 

Rhagor o wybodaeth am ofynion Iaith Saesneg.

Mae'n rhaid i ymgeiswyr sydd angen fisa Haen 4 i astudio yn y DU gyflwyno cymhwyster iaith Saesneg derbyniol er mwyn bodloni gofynion UKVI (Fisâu a Mewnfudo y DU).

The programme is presented as a three year part-time Masters level programme, and is also available as a full-time course over one year.

The programme is presented in two stages:

The taught material is delivered during the Autumn and Spring semesters. An extended project within one of the Civil Engineering fields forms a major part of the course. In Stage 1 students follow taught modules to the value of 120 credits, with a limited amount of choice between optional modules.

Stage 2 consists of a dissertation module worth 60 credits.     

Summative assessment is undertaken at the end of each year.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2020/21. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2020.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Sut y caf fy addysgu?

A wide range of teaching styles will be used to deliver the diverse material forming the curriculum of the programme. You will attend lectures and participate in examples classes. All students must complete 120 credits in Stage 1 in order to progress to the dissertation, for which they are allocated a supervisor from among the teaching staff.  Dissertation topics are normally chosen from a range of project titles proposed by academic staff, usually in areas of current research interest, although you are encouraged to put forward your own project ideas.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

You will be allocated a personal tutor to assist you with both academic progress and pastoral support when required. The personal tutor will see you early on in the programme, and then as required. For the dissertation stage, you will be allocated a supervisor in the relevant research area whom you should expect to meet with regularly.

In addition to the broad range of support services provided centrally by Cardiff University, students with specific needs will be supported as required.

Learning Central, the Cardiff University virtual learning environment (VLE), will be used extensively to communicate with students, support lectures and provide general programme materials such as reading lists and module descriptions. It may also be used to provide self-testing assessment and give feedback. 

Feedback

You will receive written feedback for written coursework assignments, oral feedback for assessed presentations. 

Sut y caf fy asesu?

Achievement of learning outcomes in the majority of modules is assessed by a combination of coursework assignments, plus University examinations set in January or May. Examinations count for 60%–70% of assessment in Stage 1 of the programme, depending on the options chosen, the remainder being largely project work and pieces of coursework.

Award of an MSc requires successful completion of Stage 2, the Dissertation, with a mark of 50% or higher. Candidates achieving a 70% average may be awarded a Distinction. Candidates achieving a 60% average may be awarded a Merit. Candidates failing to qualify for an MSc may be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma for 120 credits in Stage 1. Candidates failing to complete the 120 credits required for Stage 1 may still be eligible for the award of a Postgraduate Certificate for the achievement of at least 60 credits.

Pa sgiliau y byddaf yn eu hymarfer a’u datblygu?

As a student on this MSc programme the skills that you will practise and develop include:

         Knowledge and understanding

  • understand the multi-disciplinary nature of civil engineering and the need for the integration of knowledge from structural, geotechnical and water engineering in the management of civil engineering challenges;
  • describe the techniques used to characterise the hydrodynamics of free surface flows, including species and particle transport;
  • demonstrate a basic understanding of several cement-based composites and the use of fracture mechanics in concrete design;
  • describe the modelling of river systems and the interpretation, using IT of the results;
  • understand the basis of the finite element finite difference methods and apply the methods to 2D civil engineering problems;
  • demonstrate knowledge which is at the forefront of a range of disciplines selected from; structural, geotechnical, environmental and water engineering and the management of engineering;

         Intellectual skills

  • use knowledge and scientific, evidence-based methods in the assessment and solution of civil engineering challenges, often on the basis of limited and possibly contradictory information;
  • deal with complex civil engineering issues both systematically and creatively;
  • show originality in tackling both familiar and unfamiliar problems;
  • critically review the background to an engineering problem and to formulate a programme of works to address the issue;
  • systematically undertake a significant research project which includes originality in the application of knowledge and the exercise of critical engineering judgement;
  • collect, evaluate, synthesise and interpret qualitative and quantitative data in a variety of ways, and identify means to gain new data where needed;
  • conceive, plan, execute, and communicate the results of an extended in-depth piece of individual project work;
  • sustain a critical argument, both in writing and through presentations;

         Practical skills

  • use appropriate mathematical and experimental methods for the modelling and analysis of civil engineering problems.

         Transferable skills

  • manipulate, present and report data in a variety of ways;
  • manage resources and time;
  • communicate ideas, principles and theories effectively by oral, written, and physical or practical means.

This course's graduate employment record is excellent, with the majority of graduates joining engineering consultancies.

As this programme is three years or over in duration and has a one year full time equivalent you will not be eligible for a postgraduate loan. The UK Government has more information about eligibility for postgraduate loans.
