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.
Core modules: Advanced Structural Design; Wind Engineering; Advanced Structural Analysis; Bridge Engineering; Earthquake Engineering; Tall Building Design Project; Civil Engineering Research Project.
This is a full time, 1 year course.
Academic Entry Requirements:
