The standard entry requirement is an honours degree (2:2 minimum) in civil engineering or another appropriate subject. The Postgraduate Diploma course has more flexible entry requirements and students complete the taught part of the MSc course, but do not undertake the project. For those students whose first language is not English, the following qualifications are also required: * IELTS: 6.5 * TOEFL (internet-based): 100
Analysis and Design of Structures for Hazards Duration MSc/Postgraduate Diploma
From a general base of the study of advanced topics in the analysis of structures, the course places particular emphasis on the special requirements for the analysis and design of structures to withstand hazardous loading caused by earthquakes, blasts, impact and fire. All students attend a module on the use of IT in structural engineering.
Applicants working in the civil engineering industry may attend individual modules as short courses on a day-release basis.
Our graduates have been very successful in securing employment with leading civil engineering practices, research institutes and government agencies and pursuing doctoral studies both in the UK and internationally.
The core modules of the course cover theoretical aspects of advanced structural mechanics. The electives aim to develop design skills. The course offers a blend of theory and practice at the postgraduate level, designed to enhance the career prospects of both recent graduates and mid-career structural engineers.
Core modules include:
* Advanced structural and reliability analysis
* Stability of structures
* Structural dynamics
* Finite element methods
* Shock and earthquake analysis
* Computer-based technology for structural engineering
* Design of concrete and steel structures exposed to fire
* Two elective modules are selected from:
* Design of concrete structures
* Design of steel and composite structures
* Bridge engineering
