Civil Engineering

ACE has over 100 years’ experience
of teaching engineering. We have
developed programmes which are
designed to equip you with the
practical skills and knowledge
essential to a successful career in
the field. Our programmes are
informed by industry professionals
and include a keen emphasis on
laboratory and practical work that
will reinforce the theories and
practices learnt in the classroom.

MSc Civil Engineering


This programme addresses the needs of engineers
engaged in the planning, design and construction of
a variety of civil engineering works.

Self
-
contained modules are organised around various
areas of civil engineering. Within each module
theory and design are studied together in order to
solve practical problems.

You will learn how to accurately analyse data, how to
use various computer design packages and how to
develop and enhance effective project management
skills.

Your choice of modules and dissertation topic allow
some specialisation.

MSc Geotechnics and
Engineering Management



This programme will provide the opportunity for
students to develop specialised expertise in the
area of Geotechnics and Engineering Management.


It will provide a deep technical knowledge and
understanding of the most up to date practices and
theories across the geotechnical engineering and
management areas of civil engineering


You will be introduced to practical techniques for
analysing and solving related problems which may
arise in various Civil Engineering projects.

MSc Structural
Engineering

This programme will provide a sound
knowledge and training in
structural engineering, including
both the broad concepts involved
in construction, design and
analysis as well as specialist skills.

Practical work and lectures will
introduce you to both practice and
theory.

After successful completion of the
programme, you will be eligible for
membership of either the
Institution of Civil Engineers or the
Institution of Structural Engineers.

Electrical
Engineering

The Electrical and Electronic
Engineering programmes
at UEL have proved to be
extremely popular for
many years. We have
developed Master’s
programmes that are
innovative and challenging
and will give you the
opportunity to develop
your existing
understanding and skills to
an advanced level.

MSc Computer Systems Engineering (Control Systems)

MSc Computer Systems Engineering (Integrated Systems)

MSc Computer Systems Engineering (Software Systems)


These suite of programmes offers an opportunity to learn
about current and future technologies.

The programmes incorporates a range of specialist areas
including


Image processing


Mathematical modelling


Software applications


Artificial intelligence


Computer communications


ASIC / VLSI design methodologies

MSc Mobile Communications


This programme provides theoretical and
practical understanding of hardware and
software technologies and techniques related to
mobile communication systems and networks.


It gives you an in
-
depth knowledge of the
technology appropriate to mobile communication
systems, the hardware and software interaction
and development.


You are provided with knowledge and skills for
employment in mobile communications and
related fields in radio frequency engineering, as
well as academic grounding for further research.

Sustainability

Over the past two years, and following
the integration of the Sustainability
Research Institute (SRI) into the
School, there has been a growing set
of activities around developing both
undergraduate and postgraduate
portfolios in this area.

We have expanded our collaborations
with the Centre for Alternative
Technology (CAT) in Wales and have
developed new links with the Eden
Project in Cornwall.

MSc Environmental Adaptation and Sustainable Engineering

MSc Environmental Adaptation and Sustainable Engineering: Resources
and Materials

MSc Environmental Adaptation and Sustainable Engineering: Water,
Waste and Land

Architecture

Our Architecture programmes are
recognisable by their ‘hands
-
on’ approach to architecture,
working with the physical
exploration of materials and the
processes of site and context.
As a counterpart to our
preoccupation with the
physical, the school also has a
number of dedicated Computer
Studios which explore more
theoretical and virtual models
of architecture.

Architecture

The
MArch

programme furthers your
creative development through
looking at ways of harnessing
practice techniques and
experience to find poetic readings
and make a more architectural
response. It is organised on the
Atelier system for design work,
with options in supporting
subjects. This allows for the full
development of your skills,
knowledge and creativity.

MA Architecture:
Urban Design


The programme sets out to explore and
develop new forms of urban practice
in cities undergoing rapid change.

It aims to develop responsive positions
that are both specific and responding
to the particularities of context,
topographical, social, cultural
economic and political.

Research

The School’s research is driven by three main aims:


to develop practical solutions to real
-
world problems;


to foster knowledge transfer partnerships within the engineering
and technology communities;


and to ensure that our study programmes enable our students to
contribute to research in ways that are both challenging and
exciting.
