Course summary

Overview

Structural engineers help to make, shape and maintain the built environment, from buildings and bridges to water supply systems, power plants and flood defences. They are professionals who enjoy innovation, challenges, opportunities, responsibility and excitement in a varied and very satisfying career. As a profession, structural engineering provides a tremendous opportunity to make a real difference to peoples' lives and their environment.

This Masters degree will equip you with the advanced knowledge and skills to succeed in this challenging industry. You’ll build your knowledge of a range of core topics such as concrete and steel design, structural analysis, design optimisation and how structures are designed and managed in earthquake zones. You’ll also develop your research skills and focus on a specific topic when you complete your own research project.

Taught by leading academics and practitioners, you’ll prepare to face some of the major challenges of the 21st century.

This course has close links with local and regional industry as well as the Yorkshire branch of the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) – and you’ll benefit from the expertise of our active research groups across the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences.

You’ll also benefit from using our specialist facilities, such as bench-top testing facilities to look at the fundamental behaviour of material soils and testing rigs for full-scale structures. We have all the specialist software you’ll need for your programme, and you’ll have access to a dedicated study suite for Masters students.
