Course content

Our aim is to produce the next generation of leaders in earthquake engineering and natural disaster risk management who want to make an impact on the design of the built environment, the mitigation of seismic loss and the protection of human life. This specialist MSc combines the training of earthquake, structural and geotechnical engineering with design, assessment and management of infrastructure.

This discipline demands world-class facilities and at Bristol you will benefit from studying in the UK’s flagship centre for earthquake engineering. Here, you will have access to the state-of-the-art BLADE/EQUALS laboratory, including one of the most advanced earthquake shaking tables in Europe.

Throughout the programme you will work together with expert staff and international partners, exposing you to real-world challenges engineers face. Industry links are integral to the programme and our graduates are highly sought after by major UK and international employers.

One of the many highlights of the year is a field trip to an earthquake affected area in south-east Europe. You will have the opportunity to visit structures designed with innovative methods to resist earthquake forces or inspect the damage of a recent aftermath by using modern tools for non-destructive material testing and remote imaging.
