Course content

This MSc programme combines specialist earthquake and structural engineering study with a focus on engineering approaches for structural and geotechnical seismic analysis and design.

You will learn with a course team who are both active in research and experts in the repair and strengthening of existing structures and random vibration. Their research will help inform your learning through case studies, experimental results, and design and analysis theories. You will also develop your own advanced research, analytical and communication skills through independent research project.

Your learning and research is supported by access to facilities such as our dynamics lab equipped with a shake table (earthquake simulator), centrifuge, modal hammer, shaker and acquisition system, and our heavy structures lab, soil mechanics lab and hydraulics lab.

You will gain the knowledge, skills and critical understanding of the nature and significance of advanced structural and earthquake engineering principles in protecting structures against natural hazards – creating engineering design solutions to ensure quality of life for future generations in earthquake zones across the globe.
