The MSc in Structural Integrity is a new course for the 2014 entry, focusing on the technical knowledge and skills most relevant to developing a career in technical and engineering roles where understanding and achieving structural integrity is a key component.
The technology and applications of structural integrity are wide-ranging and constantly evolving. The course aims to create a synergy of relevant knowledge from the fields of materials, structural analysis and non-destructive testing and inspection. Major users include the oil and gas, power generation, petrochemical, nuclear and transportation sectors.
The National Structural Integrity Research Centre (NSIRC), an education and research collaboration between Brunel University and TWI, is contributing to the course.
The course aims to produce engineers and technologists who can quickly make a contribution to achieving and assuring structural integrity in industry through materials testing, structural analysis, inspection, including state-of-the-art methods and NDT techniques, and fitness-for-service assessment.
The key outputs are industry-ready, world-class engineers and technologists in structural integrity disciplines such as fail-safe design, corrosion control, structural health monitoring and ageing asset management.
PG Academic Excellence Scholarships

A first class undergraduate degree from a UK University, either in the UK or abroad.
The Women in Engineering Programme supports female graduates to attain their full potential in the engineering profession. The Programme consists of a bespoke mentoring scheme (all mentors are professionals), personal professional development training and visits to industry. The Programme also includes a £10,000 Women in Engineering Award for 30 selected female students starting their full-time masters studies in September 2015 on a range of MSc courses.This Programme aims to help you promote yourself as an engineer, have a better understanding of the career paths and opportunities available to you, and develop a network of key contacts to help you rise to the top of your profession.
Value of Scholarship(s)
You must be a female UK/EU student applying for one of the relevant MSc full-time courses listed on our website: http://www.brunel.ac.uk/cedps/courses/women-in-engineering. You must be studying for your undergraduate degree in the UK, having paid the £9,000 per annum undergraduate tuition fee, and will graduate in 2014/15. You must have an undergraduate degree in Engineering, Technology, Science or Mathematics, and be eligible for associate or graduate membership of one of the UK Engineering Institutions. Additional conditions may apply to students from Wales, Northern Ireland or Scotland who may be receiving additional funding. Please contact the university for further details.
There is no separate application procedure for this scholarship. How well you fit the criteria will be based on information taken from your postgraduate application form (application is online via the Brunel website). You should ensure that you submit a strong personal statement that answers the key points above. A good reference from your employer or supervisor will also be an important factor.Applications to the Women in Engineering programme will also be considered from graduate engineers who do not qualify for the current Women in Engineering scholarship.Places on the programme may be offered conditional to receipt of impending qualifications, if it is evident that other criteria have been met. The deadline for application is 1 September 2015.
