Description

Advertisement

The aim of the programme is to meet the needs of engineers engaged in the field of structural engineering and enhance their expertise in this area.

MSc at UEL
The programme offers several optional and self-contained modules in the field of Structural Engineering. Different areas, such as structural analysis of building structures and bridges, design in steel and concrete, dynamic analysis of structures, earthquake engineering, soil structure engineering, etc., are covered through the optional modules of this programme. The final core module will provide the opportunity of performing a supervised research dissertation acquiring and developing original knowledge in a specific area of Structural Engineering.

This programme has been developed from the MSc Programme in Civil Engineering, owing to the wide offer of modules in the area of Structural Engineering. Postgraduate programmes in the field of Civil Engineering and Surveying have been successfully run at the UEL since 1964.

Typical duration
The duration of this programme is one year full time if the enrolment is in September, and two years part time. For February enrolment, the duration becomes 15 months full time, and 27 months part time.

Programme structure
The programme can be taken either in a part-time mode, by engineers employed in the UK, or in a full-time mode by either national or overseas engineers. The MSc is offered for full-time students with the possibility of being completed in one calendar years duration. The MSc for part-time students has half load during the semesters and, consequently, the length of these studies is doubled. Part-time students require two years to complete the MSc programme.

Enrolment on the programme is possible either in semester A (starting in September, comprising the academic period from September to January) or semester B (starting in February, comprising the academic period from February to May).

Semester C (June-September) is only available for research supervision.

The programme consists of four optional 30-credit modules plus one 60-credit dissertation. The common schedules for MSc students are included below:

Semesters B and C (3rd year), or Semesters B and A (3rd year): 60-credit dissertation

The maximum registration period is six years.

Students require one 30-credit module for a Postgraduate Associate Certificate, two 30-credit modules for the PGCert, four 30-credit modules for the PGDip (Intermediate awards) and four 30-credit modules plus a 60-credit Research Dissertation in the area of Structural Engineering for the MSc.
