This is an accredited masters course in Civil Engineering with a
strong focus on Structural Engineering. It is designed for
both engineers in employment and students wishing to pursue further
study at Masters level. The course has been developed and will be
delivered in collaboration with civil engineering employers. The
taught modules specialise in advanced analysis, design and modelling.
The MSc in Civil and Structural Engineering is made up of the
following modules (each delivered in a separate block, with the
exception of the Integrating Project and Research Project:
- Advanced structural analysis
- Advanced design concepts
- Finite element analysis of structures
- Structural dynamics
- Soil-structure interaction
- Project management
- Experimental methods for materials and structures
- Integrating project
The course can be studied on a full-time (one year), or part-time
basis ( two years). Tuition is in one-week intensive blocks, with a
few weeks gap in between blocks for individual research and study.
Assessment for the taught modules is a mixture of examination and
coursework. For part-time students the blocks are spread over two
years rather than one.
This is followed by an Integrating Project and an individual Research
Project. For full-time students the Integrating Project is normally
team-based and investigates a real engineering problem. For part-time
students the Integrating Project is chosen to specifically link their
work with their studies.
Training in research methods is given in preparation for the Research
Project. Research topics are chosen in discussion with academic staff
and a wide range of potential areas within civil and structural
engineering are available.
This programme of study is ideal for those seeking deeper and more
specialist knowledge for employment within the public and private
sector, or students wishing to pursue an academic or
