Background information

The Built Environment Innovation MSc Fund is a scholarship programme delivered by the Construction Scotland Innovation Centre (CSIC). The fund is for UK or EU students and it will cover the cost of your tuition fees up to a value of £6,530. The University will waive any remaining tuition fees.

The purpose of the programme is to prepare graduates for a career in the built environment by aligning student projects and research to the challenges of a modern construction industry. This year’s themes focus on building sustainably, digital transformation, accelerating industrialisation and culture change and skills.

As a successful applicant, you will be asked to work with a built environment industry partner and base your dissertation topic on a real-life built environment industry topic. You will then provide a short case study of your findings.

Eligibility and availability

Candidates should:

  • be enrolled or applied for a Masters
  • be a UK or EU student
  • be from either construction-related courses or wider but with an interest in bringing an innovative solution to the built environment 
  • have an innovative idea for a research project that can be applied directly with industry
  • work with an industry partner throughout their Masters. You can have a partner already secured but you don’t have to as CSIC can help with that
