This comprehensive course provides training in the analysis, design and assessment of structures under seismic actions and other extreme loading conditions.

The syllabus covers a comprehensive set of topics related to structural engineering, earthquake engineering, engineering seismology, soil dynamics and advanced numerical techniques.

All of our MSc courses are career-orientated and cover both theoretical background and practical design considerations. Lectures are given mainly by full-time staff but important contributions are made by visiting professors and guest lecturers who are eminent industrialists.

Many of our students continue their studies to undertake research towards a PhD.
