This Masters (MSc) and PG diploma postgraduate degree course in Structural Engineering and Practice is offered to civil engineering and mechanical engineering related graduates wishing to study structural engineering within a civil engineering context. This programme offers the opportunity to widen knowledge in the area of Structural Engineering by including structural engineering practice, wind engineering, structural behaviour (both static and seismic), geotechnical engineering and industrial research topics.
This opens up a wide range of career opportunities, as many of the techniques are applicable both within and outside the civil engineering design and construction industry.
This programme provides a solid basis for a career in structural engineering. Comprising lectures, seminars, tutorials, workshops, coursework, group project work and site visits, the development of personal, interpersonal and project management skills, and provides a fundamental understanding of the social, economic, resource management and legal frameworks within which civil engineering projects take place.
