Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Swansea University has been at the forefront of international research in the area of civil and computational engineering.

Internationally renowned engineers at Swansea pioneered the development of numerical techniques, such as the finite element method, and associated computational procedures that have enabled the solution of many complex engineering problems.

The Zienkiewicz Centre for Computational Engineering has excellent computing facilities, including a state-of-the-art multi-processor super computer with virtual reality facilities and high-speed networking.

Recent PhD theses supervised in the area of Civil Engineering:

  • Finite Element Simulation of Damage Assessment of Concrete Bridges subject to Seismic Loading
  • Numerical Modelling and Optimisation of new RHS Column-to-I Beam Connections
  • Cohesive Discrete Element Modelling and Industrial Applications
  • Characterisation of Porous Media using the Lattice Boltzmann Method
  • Compressible computational fluid dynamics for fluid structure interaction simulation

Programme Summary

This MPhil in Civil Engineering at Swansea will enable you to undertake a substantial project led by your own interests. It is a highly respected qualification which can present a career in academia or a wider scope for employment in fields such as education, government or the private sector. A thesis of 60,000 words will be submitted for assessment demonstrating original research with a substantive contribution to the subject area.
