This MSc in Structural Engineering comprises eight taught course units worth 15 credits each and a research dissertation worth 60 credits. The taught units provide an introduction to experimental work and research methods and cover advanced aspects of theory and design principles relevant to the static and dynamic behaviour of structures, steel and concrete structures and finite element modelling. A particular highlight of the taught component of the course is studying the behaviour and design of structures against extreme loading including fire and earthquake, which is taught by internationally leading researchers and engineers. As a large multi-disciplinary engineering school, MACE has academic staff who are experts in a broad range of research areas and have a wide spread of professional experience in industry.
The next open day will be in 2017.
