The University of Bath Civil Engineering: Innovative Structural Materials MSc is a full-time, one-year taught postgraduate course.

Students study a range of modules before carrying out an individual research dissertation project in order to complete their Master of Science degree.

The course produces graduates with an in-depth and practical understanding of the use of innovative structural engineering materials in the provision of sustainable and holistic construction solutions for the built environment.

The use of construction materials is key to infrastructural development globally. New approaches are now needed for innovative renewable and low carbon structural engineering materials.

This MSc course will not only help prepare you for an exciting career in the industry, but it will also help prepare you to continue your studies onto a Doctor of Philosophy research programme.

Visit the website http://www.bath.ac.uk/engineering/graduate-school/taught-programmes/structural-engineering/

Learning outcomes

The course is aimed at engineering and science graduates who wish to work in the construction industry.

As a student you will be provided with the practical knowledge and tools to support you in the use of innovative structural engineering materials in the context of sustainable and holistic construction. You will also learn how to harness that knowledge in a business environment. You will gain analytical and team working skills to enable you to deal with the open-ended problems typical of structural engineering practice.

The MSc is based on research expertise of the BRE Centre for Innovative Construction Materials (http://www.bath.ac.uk/ace/research/cicm/) and is accredited as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired a partial CEng accredited undergraduate first degree. Please visit the Joint Board of Moderators (http://www.jbm.org.uk/) for further information about accreditation.

Collaborative working

The course includes traditionally taught subject-specific units and business and group-orientated modular work. These offer you the chance to gain experience in design, project management and creativity, while working with students from other subjects.

Project Work

Group project work:

In semester 2 you undertake a cross-disciplinary group activity for your professional development, simulating a typical industrial work situation.

Individual project work:

In the final semester, you undertake an individual research project directly related to key current research at the University, often commissioned by industry.

Structure in detail

A full list of units can be found on the programme catalogue (http://www.bath.ac.uk/catalogues/2015-2016/ar/ar-proglist-pg.html#AC).

Semester 1 (October-January)

The first semester provides a foundation in the most significant issues relating to the sustainable use of innovative structural engineering materials in design and construction; and involves units in natural building materials, advanced timber engineering, advanced composites, sustainable concrete technology and architectural structures.

- Five taught compulsory units

- Includes coursework involving laboratory or small project sessions.

- Typically each unit consists of 22 hours of lectures and 11 hours of tutorials, and may additionally involve a number of hours of laboratory activity and field trips with approximately 65-70 hours of private study (report writing, laboratory results processing and revision for examinations).

Semester 2 (February-May)

Semester 2 consists of a further 30 credits comprising of five core 6 credit units. These units include:

- Materials engineering in construction

- Advanced timber engineering

- Engineering project management.

Students will undertake a group-based design activity and an individual project scoping and planning unit (Project Unit 1). The group-based activity involves application of project management techniques and provides the basis for an integrated approach to Engineering, but with the possibility of specialising in the chosen master's topic.

It is a feature of this programme that the project work proceeds as far as possible in a way typical of best industrial practice. The Semester 2 project activities have significant planning elements including the definition of milestones and deliverables according to a time-scale, defined by the student in consultation with his/her academic supervisor and (where appropriate) his/her industrial advisor.

Summer/Dissertation Period (June-September)

Individual project leading to MSc dissertation.

Depending on the chosen area of interest, the individual project may involve theoretical and/or experimental activities; for both such activities students can use the department computer suites and well-equipped and newly refurbished laboratories for experimental work. The individual projects are generally carried out under the supervision of a member of academic staff.

There may be an opportunity for some projects to be carried out with the Building Research Establishment (BRE).

Subjects covered

- Advanced structures

- Advanced composites in construction

- Advanced timber engineering

- Materials engineering in construction

- Natural building materials

- Sustainable concrete technology

Research groups

The School of Chemistry maintains a traditional managerial structure with three sections, namely Inorganic and Materials, Organic and Biological, and Physical and Theoretical. However, the school’s research profile is defined according to nine themes, each with a critical mass of researchers. Further information on the school's research profile can be found at Explore Bristol Research (http://research-information.bristol.ac.uk/).

-Atmospheric and Global Change Chemistry
-Biological and Archaeological Chemistry
-Catalysis
-Computational and Theoretical Chemistry
-Materials for Energy
-Soft Matter, Colloids and Materials
-Spectroscopy and Dynamics
-Supramolecular and Mechanistic Chemistry
-Synthesis

Researchers in the School of Chemistry are engaged in a number of collaborative centres and research institutes, with broader engagement from researchers across the Faculty of Science, the University and beyond.

Careers

Many of our PhD graduates are successful in securing postdoctoral positions at universities in the UK and abroad. A PhD in chemistry is valued in many employment sectors worldwide, including pharmaceutical sciences, polymers, coatings, agrochemicals, instrumentation manufacturers and management consultancy. Your skills will be in high demand from the chemical and allied industries, as well as the public sector.
