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
Civil Engineering Structures MSc/Postgraduate Diploma
The course covers advanced study of modern structural engineering subjects, providing an up-to-date combination of design and analytical topics and of theory and professional practice. It is designed for engineering graduates who wish to gain a specialist knowledge in this area. 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.
Graduates have been very successful in securing employment with leading civil engineering consultants, research institutes and government agencies and pursuing doctoral studies both in the UK and internationally.
This course is approved by the Institution of Civil Engineers and Institution of Structural Engineers, as a Further Learning Scheme for Chartered Engineer.
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
* Three electives selected from:
* Design of concrete structures
* Design of steel and composite structures
* Bridge engineering
* Design of concrete and steel structures exposed to fire
The advanced topic for the dissertation involves analytical or experimental work.
