Course summary

Our Structural Engineering course will help you to advance your skills in structural analysis, design and adaptation. The course will also enhance your practical experience in the strengthening and retrofitting of structural buildings when refurbishment or function change is needed. Throughout this Masters' course, we will help you to develop your ability to use computer modelling for the analysis and design of structures under technical uncertainty. You will have access to dedicated computing laboratories as well as a range of digital resources. You will also gain an insight into the broader issues of construction risk management, geotechnical problems and structural research. All these gained skills will help you to compete for working in design offices and construction sites. Our dedicated professional academic staff have extensive experience in teaching, research and industry which will offer you the best possible support during studying the taught modules and dissertation preparation. Academic staff are members of relevant professional bodies (ICE, IStructE, CIHT, CIWEM, CIOB and IBSE, CInstCES and CILT). The MSc Structural Engineering course contains advanced structural modules such as Structural Adaptation, Structural Systems Analysis, and Advanced Structural Design to enhance your knowledge and understanding of structural engineering within the context of building structures. Recruitment is anticipated from civil and structural graduates with an interest in analysis and design of structural elements. You will develop the skill base required for working as a site or design office engineer. The course develops these skills in an integrated manner. The unique understanding of structural engineering related to building structures will make you highly skilled and sought after by employers. You will be able to appreciate competing considerations, while able to balance professional opinions. You will also develop the skills required for involvement in new schemes and the rehabilitation of existing structures using traditional and advanced methods. The course can be the basis for further education, progressing to study for PhD in Civil and Structural Engineering. Facilities Our facilities and labs are regularly used throughout the course for teaching and research purposes in various modules. PC labs are used in multiple modules in which analytical work and special software tools are necessary to carry out relevant coursework. Soil mechanics and Concrete labs can be used for dissertation experimental work if needed. Our library facilities provide an excellent environment for you to work in a group or individually for coursework and prepare for examinations. The library contains Help Zones where you can get assistance from Library staff as well as IT support. The library has a range of IT services to support you. Extended Masters If you have an undergraduate degree but do not meet the entry criteria for this course, you may qualify for our Extended Masters option. This course features four specially designed modules which will improve your academic and English skills. Once completed you can progress directly onto the regular Masters course. See below for more information.

Entry requirements

You should have an honours degree (2:2 or above) in civil engineering or another engineering qualification at an equivalent level. We may also offer you a place based on a combination of an ordinary degree (e.g. BSc/BEng in engineering without honours) together with relevant experience from within the work environment.
