Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

The role of the structural engineer is of growing importance to society as populations grow and the world becomes more inter-connected. Skyscrapers are getting taller and bridges are getting longer. The Green Energy revolution requires energy generating infrastructure to be structurally designed for resilience in harsh environments, e.g. high wind or deep marine locations. As a major contributor to CO2 production (10% of global emissions), the construction industry depends on structural engineers to design energy efficient buildings, using appropriate materials to minimise the environmental impact of the sector.

Students on the MSc Structural Engineering course will be provided with in-depth knowledge and exposure to established and innovative ideas and techniques to enable them to develop sound solutions to structural engineering problems.

It will cover the diverse nature of structural engineering through the integration of knowledge from mechanics, materials, structural analysis and structural design. The programme will also cover the latest technical trends in Civil and Structural Engineering including advanced computational modelling skills and will cover technical challenges and solutions faced in the management and delivery of large scale infrastructure works.

Accredited by Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE), the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT), the Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE), and the Permanent Way Institution (PWI)
