    Postgraduate courses in civil structures

    Structural Engineering is one of four postgraduate taught courses in civil structures. Courses are also available in Concrete Engineering, Earthquake and Civil Engineering Dynamics, and Steel Construction.

    Structural Engineering courses

    These courses are ideally suited to students with a civil engineering degree, or students with a first degree in another appropriate subject who want to diversify.

    Our MSc courses can form Part 2 (Matching Section) of the Education Base for Chartered Engineer status. For further details see:
