  • Academic Title
    Structural Engineering MSc/Diploma
  • Course description
    This course is designed for engineers who wish to improve their knowledge of recent developments in structural analysis and design, and to deepen their understanding of structural engineering. It is designed to suit both fresh graduates and those with some practical experience.

    It is also possible, by drawing on the University's strengths in offshore engineering, to gain knowledge suitable for structural engineers working in the offshore sector.

    Particular emphasis is placed on the recent advances in analytical and design techniques with reference to those most likely to be used in practice. The use of modern analytical techniques – for example, finite element analysis – is integrated where possible with design studies in pre-stressed and reinforced concrete, steel and composite construction. On successful completion of the course candidates will be well equipped to take employment in many sectors of the civil and structural engineering industry.

    The MSc course comprises eight modules, of which seven are core and one elective, plus a dissertation.
    CORE MODULES

        * Finite Element Analysis
        * Mechnics of Materials
        * Structural Analysis
        * Stability and Dynamics
        * Safety Risk and Reliability
        * Properties of Materials
        * Structural Design

    ELECTIVE MODULES

        * Earthquake Engineering
        * Structural Inspection, Assessment & Repair
        * Asset Maintenance Management

    Approved modules from other courses within the School may also be chosen.
