Structural Engineering is the science and art of designing civil engineering facilities so that they can safely resist the forces to which they may be subjected. All structures from bridges to buildings, harbours to airports, must be able to meet these requirements. Structural Engineers aim to design these structures with safety, economy and elegance.
 

Overview

The programme of study is designed to progress your qualifications in the following ways:

  • Deepen your technical knowledge, skills and competences in the specialised field of Structural Engineering;
     
  • Prepare you to undertake the Institution of Structural Engineers Professional Practice Examination by developing your structural analysis and design skills to an appropriate level;
     
  • Develop your ability to carry out in depth research in a chosen field of Engineering, to draw conclusions from the research and present research findings;
     
  • Broaden your knowledge in other areas such as Sustainability and Project Management;
     
  • You will have achieved the new educational standard required for the title Chartered Engineer.
