Course content

From skyscrapers and megastructures to bridges and tunnels networks, major projects need to be fit for purpose, withstand natural disasters and make the best use of resources. Develop your engineering knowledge and technique to help deliver them with our accredited MSc Structural Engineering postgraduate degree.

Available with full-time and part-time study pathways, and led by an industry-experienced engineering team, our course will provide you with advanced knowledge of structures, ready to meet the challenges of the modern engineering practice.

Following a suite of carefully-design modules that blend theory with contemporary methodology and practice, you will assess how technology and computer-aided design is reshaping practice. You will examine bridges and tall building engineering in detail, and explore how seismic analysis influences design.

You will:

  • Explore specific issues related to tall buildings and bridge engineering as you examine how technology is driving change in building design and construction practice
  • Continue to develop your engineering skills and knowledge, so you're ready to meet the challenges of contemporary structural engineering
  • Learn from IStructE award-winning academics with industry experience as you follow a professionally-accredited pathway towards chartered status
