MSc Structural Engineering with Management

Course Description

This programme enables you to focus on developing your technical engineering skills, as well as your management skills

Today, structural engineering is more than just design. Expert consultants are needed globally with a complete skill set; the ability to design, manage and maintain structures, but also to enable existing civil infrastructure to operate under changing loading and environment.

Alongside the core engineering modules, you will also study two management modules taught by the Business School which will help you develop transferable professional management skills that will enhance your study experience and improve your career prospects.

This programme will provide you with a solid understanding of the whole process of structural design, analysis and operation. You will discover how to design and manage the dynamic behaviour of structures using state of the art hardware and software for performance assessment, measurement, and instrumentation to withstand normal and extreme operational loads.

The programme is taught by our internationally leading academic team with expertise in structural performance analysis and health monitoring, structural dynamics, control, infrastructure management, systems and informatics.

Successful graduates will be equipped with specialist skills increasingly demanded by employing infrastructure consultants, contractors, operators, and government agencies and can expect to progress into international senior level positions in civil, construction and environmental industries.

Programme Structure

This programme is modular and flexible and consists of eight core engineering modules and one option module.

Core modules

The core modules can include; Structural Design; Software Modelling; Conceptual Design of Buildings; Conceptual Design of Bridges; Active and Passive Structural Control; Vibration Engineering; Management Concepts and Structural Engineering Dissertation

Optional modules

Some examples of the optional modules are Strategic Innovation Management and Strategy.

The modules listed here provide examples of what you can expect to learn on this degree course based on recent academic teaching. The precise modules available to you in future years may vary depending on staff availability and research interests, new topics of study, timetabling and student demand

Teaching and assessment

The programme is delivered through a mix of lectures, seminars, tutorials, industrial presentations, case studies, industry visits, computer simulations, project work and a dissertation. It has particular value in developing transferable skills development including management skills, communication skills, computational techniques, data handling and analysis, problem solving, decision making and research methodology. Many of these skills will be addressed within an industrial and commercial context.

A world-class laboratory

The MSc Structural Engineering programme will take advantage of a cutting edge laboratory, with state of the art measurement and testing technology. This purpose-built teaching and research facility is dedicated to better understanding structural performance including in-situ testing and monitoring of prototype and real life structures. Featuring;
• Unique and reconfigurable prototype floor or footbridge structure weighing up to 15 tonnes
• Instruments capable of measuring static and dynamic structural movements from meter to nanometer
• Ambient and forced vibration testing, facilities including equipment and software
• Vibration control systems
• Individual and group human motion tracking and measurement systems
• Motion capture facilities
