Course content

This is an advanced postgraduate course specialising in structural engineering covering advanced structural analysis and design, structural computing simulation and also offering units linked with steel, concrete, timber and other structural designs. It will also provide you with knowledge to design structures under dynamic and earthquake conditions.

The modules taught focus on learning advanced methods and techniques while developing analytic skills across a range of structural engineering topics.

Two modules, Finite Elements and Stress Analysis and Advanced Computing Structural Simulation, focus on learning advanced computing methods and commercial computing software for structures modelling and simulation.

Advanced Structural Analysis and Design and the Masonry and Timber Engineering modules will cover advanced structural theory and designing traditional structures, such as, steel, concrete, masonry and timbers. Earthquake Engineering will cover design of structures in seismic areas and analysis of structures under dynamic loading.

Soil-Structure Engineering will cover interaction of geotechnics and structures as well as foundation structures. Finally, you'll either conduct a structural related research project or a design project.

Accreditation

This degree is accredited by the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation and the Institute of Highway Engineers on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements.

Modules

Teaching techniques include: lectures, workshops, tutorials, laboratories, field trips and IT based blended learning. Visiting lecturers from industry contribute in some modules.
