We have designed our Structural Engineering MSc to develop your expertise in line with the ever-changing demands of the profession.
We will enhance your knowledge in all the essential areas, from advanced structural analysis to soil-structure engineering, and we will ensure your research skills are sharp enough to give you the competitive edge when you embark on your career.
Our campus location in the heart of London’s Docklands will allow you to see close up the challenges, and opportunities, for the next generation of engineers, from intensive urbanisation and major economic regeneration to climatic change.
We have excellent contacts with major industry employers, including Atkins Consultants, Waterman Group, Thames Water, SRK Consulting and the London Borough of Newham.
We will get your engineering career off to the best possible start. Our MSc Engineering courses enjoy widespread professional recognition and are accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) of the Institutions of Civil, Structural, and Highways and Transportation Engineers.
This course also meets the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for students with the right undergraduate qualifications.
The course includes a number of self-contained, taught modules organised around the various areas of structural engineering. The wide range of subjects covered includes Advanced Structural Analysis, Design of Concrete and Steel Structures, Structural Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering and Soil Structure Engineering.
The taught modules are complemented by a research dissertation project that you will undertake at the end of your course. This dissertation is your route to becoming an accredited chartered engineer.
There is a highly practical emphasis to our MSc. You will learn the theory and then apply it through working on projects in our extensive laboratories and during fieldwork.
These projects will provide you with the learning opportunities and practical skills you will need in your future career. You will graduate with a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the most up-to-date practices and theories in structural engineering.
