    Structural Engineering MSc (Eng)
  • Course description
    Structural Engineering is at the heart of any developed or developing country. Virtually everything that you see in the modern world involves a structure of some shape or form. These include a huge variety of buildings, bridges, railways, airports, water supply systems, water treatment plants, flood defence schemes, oil and gas process plants and power stations. Many examples of construction that remain from the ancient world are also fine examples of structural engineering.

    Structural engineers help to make, shape and maintain the built environment. They are professionals who enjoy innovation, a challenge, opportunities, responsibility and, excitement in a varied and very satisfying career. Structural engineering is a profession that provides a tremendous opportunity to make a real difference to people’s lives and their environment.

    It is designed to provide BSc(Hons) and BEng(Hons) qualified Civil and Structural Engineers with the educational base required for Chartered Structural Engineer status, and to help graduates satisfy some of the IStructE IPD requirements.

    This programme is a unique collaborative venture between the School of Civil Engineering, local and regional industry and the Yorkshire Branch of the IStructE.

    Staff in the School of Civil Engineering achieved a 5 rating (ratings range from 1-5*) in the recent UK Government Research Assessment Exercise (RAE). Not only does this confirm our status as one of the foremost Civil Engineering research and learning centres, it also means that our teaching staff are at the leading-edge of their field so students benefit from world-class cutting-edge learning and teaching.
