Established in 2003 with the aim of providing training in the analysis, design and assessment of structures under general conditions. The course is designed to cover a broad and comprehensive set of topics related to steel and concrete structural engineering, using advanced analytical and numerical techniques. Ideally suited to practising engineers with relevant experience, recent graduates with an appropriate first degree will also greatly benefit from attending.

Course Objectives

  • Produce graduates equipped to pursue careers in structural design and analysis in industry, the public sector and non-governmental organisations;
  • Provide the basis for the recognition and understanding of the major features of structural engineering;
  • Develop an understanding of how this knowledge may be applied in practice in an economic and environmentally sustainable manner;
  • Foster the acquisition and implementation of broad research and analytical skills related to structural engineering;
  • Attract highly motivated students irrespective of race, gender, background and physical disability, from the UK and overseas;
  • Develop new areas of teaching in response to the advance of scholarship and the needs of the community including vocational training;
  • Provide an introduction to the subject for students from other relevant disciplines

Studying period - one and a half days per week over two years

​Course Structure

Students will undertake 6 modules in the autumn term (October to December), examined in January; and a further 6 modules in the spring term (January-March), examined after the Easter break.  This second examination period is followed by a 2-week conceptual group design exercise and a major individual piece of work, either research or design based.The course culminates in a final project which can be design or research orientated.
