This is an accredited masters course in Civil Engineering with a strong focus on Structural Engineering. It is designed for both engineers in employment and students wishing to pursue further study at Masters level. The course has been developed and will be delivered in collaboration with civil engineering employers. The taught modules specialise in advanced analysis, design and modelling.
WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?
Approved as ‘further learning’ by the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation and the Institute of Highway Engineers
In-depth modules covering a range of structural analysis and concepts.
Training in research methods is given in preparation for the research project.
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
The MSc in Civil and Structural Engineering is made up of the following modules, each delivered in a separate block with the exception of the Integrating Project and Research Project:
Advanced structural analysis; Advanced design concepts; Finite element analysis of structures; Structural dynamics; Soil-structure interaction; Project management; Experimental methods for materials and structures; Integrating project. The course can be studied on a full-time (one year), or part-time basis (two years). Tuition is in one-week intensive blocks, with a few weeks' gap in between blocks for individual research and study. Assessment for the taught modules is a mixture of examination and coursework. For part-time students the blocks are spread over two years rather than one.
This is followed by an Integrating Project and an individual Research Project. For full-time students the Integrating Project is normally team-based and investigates a real engineering problem. For part-time students the Integrating Project is chosen to specifically link their work with their studies.
Training in research methods is given in preparation for the Research Project. Research topics are chosen in discussion with academic staff and a wide range of potential areas within civil and structural engineering are available.
Normal entry requires a minimum 2:2 undergraduate honours degree in Civil Engineering. Applicants with professional/industrial experience and/or training, but not meeting the normal entry requirements, will be considered on their merits.Students whose first language is not English should have achieved a minimum English language standard of IELTS 6.5.
