Structural engineers design, develop and evaluate materials and systems used in constructing load-bearing infrastructure, such as roads, bridges, buildings, railway lines and dams.
You will be guided by researchers, who are recognised internationally for their expertise in high-rise structures, and earthquake and blast-resistant technologies. You will have access to some highly specialised subjects in structural engineering, including the design of resilient structures to counter extreme conditions. Design seminars, field work and workshops provide opportunities to work with industry professionals.
The Master of Engineering (Structural) will lead to a formal qualification in structural engineering.
Career opportunities exist in a variety of roles related to the design and development of structures, their longevity, and their ability to withstand extremes, such as earthquake, high winds, blast or fire, and the risk assessment of infrastructure, for government, consultancies and industry.
You will find employment with national and global companies such as Arup, Bonacci Group, Brookfield Multiplex, GHD, WorleyParsons and AECOM.
The Master of Engineering is professionally recognised under two major accreditation frameworks — EUR-ACE® and the Washington Accord (through Engineers Australia). Graduates can work as chartered professional engineers throughout Europe, and as professional engineers in the 17 countries of the Washington Accord.
The Master of Engineering Structures provides a unique opportunity for both graduate and experienced civil and structural engineers to learn from internationally recognised experts in structural engineering.
You will further your knowledge in the advanced design of engineering structures, in particular, the design of ecologically sustainable and resilient structures. You will gain a thorough understanding of structural systems, conceptual design and advanced analysis techniques and have access to a dynamic mix of guest and local seminar presentations on leading research topics.
This program will suit qualified engineers wanting to upskill, change their career, or extend their current knowledge of structural engineering.
Career opportunities exist in a variety of roles related to the design of structures, their longevity, and their ability to withstand extreme conditions, such as earthquakes, high winds, explosions, fire and other high-impact loads. In addition to designing, building and assessing new structures, you may be involved in the risk assessment of existing structures. Your advanced knowledge of the theory and practice of structural engineering will be an asset in industry, enhancing your technical, management and leadership skills.
You will find employment with national and global companies such as Arup, AECOM, Bonacci Group, Hyder Consulting, Cardno and Beca.
