On completion of this programme you will be able to conceive, model, design and analyse a wide range of innovative structures and apply advanced concepts in structural engineering.
The distinguishing features of this programme are the integration of theory, design and application, and the response of structures to extreme loading (earthquake engineering and wind engineering). Integration is achieved by exploiting a computer modelling thread. This provides students with the opportunity to apply advanced structural analysis (finite elements, non-linear analysis, structural dynamics) using state of the art software. Using this platform, these techniques are applied within a practical context (steel structures, concrete structures, bridge engineering and earthquake engineering) which is developed further in a major design project.
