Just out of curiosity, why did you not stay at on to complete the MEng?

Unfortunately I didn't do well in year 2 and rejected by my uni.

Okay. What do you want to do initially in your career? The MSc in civil engineering is likely going to be a lot more technical than the construction project management one. I'm not sure if there is much value to an MSc in some sort of project management without first having at least some previous experience in engineering, although construction isn't area so things might be different there.

A friend of mine say that Project management might seems useless at the beginning but when you get to a higher position , there will be lots of decisions making and project management will become useful at that time. I dont know which one is more useful for me to pursue my career in civil engineering.

If it was me I would do the straight civil engineering MSc. Most (in fact all that I'm aware of) the project managers at my company started off technical and worked their way into a project management type position.
