Benefits of this course

This accredited course has many and varied benefits that will help progress your future career.


As a department we believe civil engineering is a creative and collaborative profession, as much as a technical one.


Your course will give you the skills and tools you need to engage with both the analytical and experimental side of the subject allowing you to generate your own structural solutions.


From earthquake engineering to sustainable construction, you’ll learn from a group of world-leading engineers with diverse research strengths.


You can select to apply for one of the available exit points for this course.

  • Master of Science (MSc)

Who is this course for?

This course is for professional engineers who want to specialise in structural engineering or move into this area of expertise to advance their career.


You will have a degree in engineering or a related discipline.


If you don’t have qualifications in civil engineering it’s likely you’ll have relevant work experience in civil engineering structures.
