Your programme of study

Introduction

Structural engineering has always been an important discipline within engineering and critical to aerospace, renewables, oil and gas installations, renewables, civil engineering areas, mechanical engineering, logistical industries and new commercial needs. Materials have become exciting to work with in terms of composition, enhanced capabilities and improvements to all aspects of life with innovations in Nano technologies, and smart technology linking into all aspects of engineering. There is always an increasing need to improve every aspect of life and work and structural engineering plays a big part in steady innovations towards wider applications and major steps forward.

This advanced programme allows you to explore the new capabilities and not only work with them in a practical sense but have the skills and knowledge to apply your learning to new challenges in these industries are more in an analytical sense. Much learning that has been applied to all structural engineering has come from the oil and gas industry, aviation, subsea, large civil projects where there is a need for safety, reducing risk and performance in all the challenging conditions presented. Learning comes from all areas of commercial structural engineering projects which have enabled challenging tasks to take place. You look at risers, hydrodynamics, risk and reliability, lightweight structures, mathematical optimisation to model scenarios, composite materials and their positive and negative aspects, vibration, offshore designs, fire and explosion risk and safety and fluid dynamics.
