You will study modules in computational analysis of structures, earthquake engineering, concrete materials and construction, environmental management. Furthermore, you will undertake a project, which may be research or industry focused, or a combination of the two, and will give you the opportunity to work with Scotland’s leading civil engineering research group. The course is professionally accredited.
On the course you will study aspects of both structural engineering and concrete materials and see how the two aspects relate to each other. You will also study core modules that provide skills generic to engineering and research.
The course is backed by our Concrete Technology Unit (CTU). Our concrete research covers concrete science, environment, technology and construction; durability and repair technologies; durability, repair and maintenance strategies; recycling/reuse of materials and sustainability issues; novel construction applications; and risk assessment.
