The programme aims to provide theoretical and practical training in Structural Engineering, leading to a Masters degree by Examination and Dissertation. The content reflects current and likely future practice in structural analysis, design, appraisal, experimental techniques and the use of computers.
The programme comprises compulsory taught course units, optional course units and a dissertation. To be eligible for the award of a masters degree you must complete ten course units and a research dissertation. You select three optional units. Typical course units include: Advanced Theory of Structures; Reinforced Concrete Structures; Foundations for Structures; Structural Dynamics and Stability; Materials for Structures; Steel Structures; Engineering Project Management; Pre-stressed and Cable Structures; Advanced Project Management; Ground Engineering; Shell Structures; Earthquake Engineering.
The programme commences in mid-September and for the first six months you follow a programme of lectures, tutorials and assignments. Course units are assessed by course work assignments, project work and examinations in January and in May/June. The remainder of the academic year is spent on a research project culminating in the submission of a dissertation in September.
