Course content

Our Bridge Engineering MSc is the only MSc programme in this area in Europe and one of the very few around the world. Running since the early 1970s, our fully accredited MSc will provide you with the opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills in specialist aspects of bridge engineering.

You’ll be taught by passionate academics with exceptional expertise in bridge-related research and practice, alongside guest lecturers from industry within the field of bridge engineering and management.

This course will help you pursue an exciting career as a bridge engineer with a consultancy, specialist contractor or local authority.

Our MSc Bridge Engineering course is designed to provide you with a solid understanding of bridge analysis, design and management. If you’re a practising bridge engineer, our MSc will enable you to update your existing knowledge and skills and familiarise yourself with new industry-relevant techniques.

This course covers a wide range of modules which address the whole life-analysis of bridges from design through to end-of-life. You’ll also have a choice of optional modules from the areas of:

  • Structural engineering
  • Geotechnical engineering
  • Water/environmental engineering
  • Construction management
  • Infrastructure engineering and management.

During your studies, you’ll have the chance to visit a bridge site on a field trip (subject to availability), allowing you to experience how your knowledge can be applied outside of the classroom.
