Course summary

Our Structural Engineering Masters programme is designed for civil engineering or related graduates looking to specialise as structural engineers, or those seeking to advance their career prospects in the industry, this course will enable you to deal with complex structural engineering issues.

Decision making at a high level is often demanded by the industry, and here you will learn the techniques and unlock the confidence to use your initiative, communicate conclusions and solutions and tackle often-unpredictable scenarios.

This Masters/MSc/PG diploma postgraduate degree course in Structural Engineering offers the opportunity to widen knowledge in the area of Structural Engineering by including structural engineering practice, wind engineering, structural behaviour (both static and seismic), geotechnical engineering and industrial research topics.

The course has been devised to meet the demands of both the UK and overseas engineering and construction industries. It offers advanced training to engineers aspiring to higher or middle management in public and private sector management. This opens up a wide range of career opportunities, as many of the techniques are applicable both within and outside the civil engineering design and construction industry.

Students can also exit with PGDip award.
