Course content

This full-time course provides specialist technical knowledge and skills to students wishing to specialise in structural engineering.

This postgraduate programme allows you to develop a detailed theoretical understanding of structural engineering, and how to apply that understanding to practical design situations. These include the response of structures to extreme loading, such as winds and earthquakes.

The course integrates theory, application and design. Theory will be introduced alongside its application using in advanced software and computer modelling, in structural engineering and in BIM, so that you can see how it relates to real-world problems.

Structural design is a core element of the course, providing you with the opportunity to extend your knowledge of steel and concrete structures. Tall buildings and bridges provide further opportunities for you to integrate advanced analysis with design in a practical context.

  • The programme is accredited 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.
