Course Description

Opportunities are available for the study of MPhil by full and part time options. Opportunities exist to attend specialist classes, lectures and training courses in accordance with individual research and personal development aims. MPhil are research degrees involving independent research within the department?s two multidisciplinary research groups: * Environment Research Group * Infrastructure Research Group The topics cover not only the traditional fields of civil engineering, but also environmental health, pollution studies, environmental entrepreneurship, environmental forensics, sustainable development and international studies. Industrial CASE PhD studentships are encouraged (see http:www.strath.ac.ukcta). About the Department of Civil Engineering: Civil Engineering at Strathclyde University has been one of the first departments in the UK to fully embrace the importance of the environment in today?s world. This has made it a strong and forward-looking department and the ideal choice for graduate students who are interested in doing a post-graduate degree that is highly marketable. A unique feature of the department is our strong link to industry and public bodies, which is an essential part of our approach to research and education. It also provides our students with valuable contacts outside the world of academia. The department is the main provider of graduates in Civil Engineering and Environmental Health in Scotland. In particular, the Department leads the Joint Research Institute in Environment, Infrastructure and Transportation formed in 2007 under the Glasgow Research Partnership in Engineering (GRPE). The GRPE - which includes the Universities of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Glasgow Caledonian and Paisley - was funded to promote multi-disciplinary collaboration between leading research groups in the West of Scotland and provide world-class joint research facilities (see http:www.grpeng.ac.uk). In addition, the Department is the main sponsor of the David Livingstone Centre for Sustainability (DLCS) ? see http:www.strath.ac.ukdlcs ? which aims to promote cross-disciplinary programmes in teaching and research, for the whole University, in the areas of environment and sustainability.
