Course summary

Structural and fire safety is very wide-ranging, impacting on our daily lives in diverse and unexpected ways. As a student on this programme, you will gain a valuable grounding in civil and environmental engineering, while learning how to mitigate fire risk through the design, construction and protection of infrastructure. The programme builds on many of the fundamental concepts of civil and environmental engineering, including the application of scientific knowledge and modern engineering tools to the analysis, design, construction and maintenance of all major forms of infrastructure. In particular this will allow you to determine the effects of modern construction methods and materials on the safety of buildings and infrastructure. You will take specific courses related to Structural and Fire Safety Engineering from Year 3 onwards. This programme draws on areas of particular expertise at Edinburgh in the traditional areas of transport, tunnels, bridge and buildings while also addressing emerging areas, such as structural fire engineering, advanced geotechnical investigation and design, use of novel and sustainable materials, and advanced numerical modelling for particulate solids and structures. **Ties to industry** We have strong industrial engagement via our Industrial Advisory Board and industrial input to teaching, including our design projects. There are opportunities for interaction with recent graduates working in industry, and we offer a close-knit, supportive community to develop your engineering skills within. **Work experience and internships** You are encouraged to undertake relevant work experience during your degree. We work closely with the Careers Service to advertise internship opportunities and arrange company presentations. We support your development of graduate attributes through our Edinburgh Award for Civil and Environmental Engineering Industrial Placements, which is recognised on your academic transcript.
