Basically, an MS in Construction Engineering is the most popular civil engineering course in the UK. Most of the international students that target engineering programs, go with this one when it comes to studying abroad in the UK. In a way, you can say that the UK has construction as the best specialization available in their universities.

It’s not like all the engineering students there are after a construction engineering masters. But as you asked, this is the most wanted degree in civil engineering in the UK. The reason can be too many. One reason is because the construction engineering courses there are ranked very high. Also, because the UK is a very good country for management status, a construction engineering management degree there  is very common.

Undergraduates that want an engineering career in the business industry, generally opt for this degree. Automatically, it makes the specialization the most-sought after in the UK. If you want some university suggestions, here are they -


  • University College London (UCL)
  • University of Sheffield
  • University of Nottingham
  • University of Birmingham

Both UCL and University of Sheffield are top-tier universities in the UK. In fact they are widely known globally and you can get many good courses from there. However, for an MS in construction engineering, these two are one of the best ones in the entire Europe. The other two; Nottingham and Birmingham are the cheaper options. These two are also really good for construction engineering.
