Learn the analytical and design skills needed to create successful structures in challenging environments.

This is the largest academic concrete research centre in the UK so you’ll benefit from some great facilities.

We have international-level expertise in cement chemistry, aggregate science, binder technology, concrete durability, alternative concrete materials, structural performance and design, earthquake and nuclear reactor design, and finite element analysis.

About us

We are one of the largest and most active civil engineering departments in the UK. All our masters courses are informed by our own world-leading research and industry needs. The 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) puts us in the UK top four.

Our structures-based courses are accredited by The Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation, and Institute of Highway Engineers as satisfying part 2 academic base requirements for a Chartered Engineer under UK-SPEC.
