Course content

This industry-accredited course is tailored to civil and/or structural engineers wishing to become senior managers in both consulting engineering and contracting organisations, and is ideal for graduate engineers starting their career in the construction industry.

The Structural Design and Construction Management Masters course successfully combines structural engineering with advanced construction management, which will enable you to perform at a managerial level for a consultant or contractor.

The course is led by a Chartered Structural Engineer with industrial and academic experience.

Academic teaching is complemented by experts from leading civil/ structural engineering consultancies and construction companies, enabling you to develop a wider perspective and understanding of the worldwide issues facing the construction industry.

This degree is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM), comprising the Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Institute of Highway Engineers and the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation, on behalf of the Engineering Council, as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired a partial CEng accredited undergraduate first degree.

You will learn how to carry out the conceptual and detailed design of standard and innovative structures and substructures under normal and earthquake actions, to latest standards, using steel and concrete. You will also study the financial, legal and contractual problems associated with the construction process, and will learn how to apply your knowledge of management techniques and contract administration in the supervision of construction projects.
