About the course

Structural engineers create the ‘bones and muscles’ of human-made structures.

Running since 1966, our course allows you to choose from a rich and varied selection of specialist structural engineering subjects. 

You’ll be taught by forward-thinking academics who are at the top of their field, as well as practising engineers from consultancies and local authorities. You will also benefit from the first-class facilities that Surrey has to offer.

Our course is offered as standard full-time study. There are also part-time and distance learning options that you may also wish to consider.

What you will study

Our well-established and fully-accredited MSc in Structural Engineering will enable you to generate advanced capabilities in analysis and codified design in the specialised areas of

Entry Requirements

A minimum of 60 per cent in a UK honours degree in civil engineering accredited to CEng, with a minimum of 60 per cent in Structures and Codified Design subjects. Alternatively, a minimum of 70 per cent in a UK honours degree in civil engineering accredited to IEng plus approval from the relevant institution. We'll also accept a recognised equivalent international qualification. At least five years of relevant industrial experience (preferably codified design) or a professional qualification (for example, CEng) will also be considered if you don’t meet these requirements.

Student Profile(s)

Polyvios Oikonomou

603.jpg I came to the University of Surrey when I was 18, 5 years ago, joining the course of Civil Engineering. I have to admit that through my entire experience the university helped me in various and important ways.

Most specifically, I had the opportunity to understand and identify the importance and meaning of the subject I was interested in, and now as an extension of the course I have the chance to specialise in structural engineering.

Furthermore, what really needs to be addressed is the environment and the location of the university, which help the students in everyday life to gain energy and confidence. I think it helped a lot to be always near the lake and trees; anywhere that has so much green is related to life.

Finally, what really helped me and other foreign students, is the variety of nationalities of students at Surrey; it is absolutely remarkable how many different students from different countries there are.

It is amazing, because apart from the fact that nobody ever feels like a stranger, students have the chance to meet different people with different traditions and it helps the student gain a better view of life in general. No matter how different the students are, they co-operate with each other and they realise how many common things they have. It is interests that bring people together, not the place or the language...

The university also offers some very good facilities for all kinds of interests such as Gym, football, basketball, dancing, etc but from my point of view what really made the difference were the 3 parameters discussed above (level of course, great environment and variety of nationalities). I really think the university helped me, mostly in identifying what is best for myself and my future, and my everyday life was just great.

I have always been interested in structures and doing an MSc in that field was my dream.
Having worked in a construction company before, and already possessing a bachelor’s degree in engineering, I was keen to expand my knowledge in structural engineering. This course provides an attractive programme structure with a good variety of interesting modules. Given that engineering is a demanding degree on its own, advanced engineering, emphasising structures in particular, can be a challenge. At University, I have the full support of my family and friends, my personal tutor and the programme director, along with the staff in my department.
What is fascinating about this degree is the extent to which it both covers and promotes the practical capabilities necessary for an engineer. Focusing on design of the most commonly used structural materials, along with the construction aspect, what more can an engineer seek? This course offers a substantial range of skills, but requires complete devotion and a lot of work. For anyone who is determined to put a lot of effort in and is enthusiastic about engineering, it will be a greatly profitable experience.


Evangelos Alexakis

Structural Engineering is one of the most challenging disciplines of engineering. Surrey’s MSc programme gave me the opportunity to meet the needs of engineers engaged in the field of structural engineering, and enhance my expertise in this area.

As I progressed throughout my degree, I developed as an individual and as part of a team. Having studied full-time, the course pushed the boundaries of what I thought I could achieve, which was really rewarding.

Experienced academic members of staff, in combination with visiting specialist lecturers, greatly enhanced my analytical problem-solving skills and the support facilities provided me with all the necessary resources to complete a number of challenging projects.

Surrey’s MSc in Structural Engineering was a career-orientated course, covering both theoretical and practical design considerations, which enabled me to gain a deeper understanding of the field thus providing me with the means to get where I am today; working as a Structural Engineer in the oil and gas industry.
