This course is aimed at graduates with an honours degree or relevant professional experience who want to develop their understanding and skills as structural engineers.
The course meets the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired an Accredited CEng (Partial) BEng (Hons) or an Accredited Eng (Full) BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree. See http://www.jbm.org.uk for further information.
The course is delivered via a combination of lectures, tutorials, design projects, computing sessions and laboratory demonstrations.
You will be encouraged to attend meetings of the professional institutions, where relevant topics are being discussed.
Where possible, pertinent site visits and guest lectures will be organised.
Coursework 42%, Examination 47% and Dissertation 11%.
Graduates of this course will be well equipped to meet the challenges of the modern structural engineering industry. They may occupy pivotal appointments in prestigious building schemes and the prospect of a challenging career to provide and protect the infrastructure that underpins society.
Graduates might typically work as a structural engineer in a design office or for an engineering consultancy.
Many of our graduates will go on to further study in our Engineering 2050 Research Centre.
The Engineering Research Centre brings together a wealth of expertise and international reputation in three focussed subject areas. Research at the centre is well funded, with support from EPSRC, TSB, DoH, MoD, Royal Society, European Commission, as well as excellent links with and direct funding from industry. Our research excellence means that we have not only the highest calibre academics but also the first class facilities to support the leading edge research projects for both post-graduate studies and post-doctoral research.
You will probably be part of our Civil Engineering Group in this Centre which carries out leading edge research in structural engineering, transportation engineering, geotechnical engineering and hydraulics.
