Structural Engineering

Course overview

A postgraduate major in Structural Engineering is concerned with the design of high-rise buildings, industrial complexes, bridges, stadiums, and sporting and exhibition centres.

You will gain an understanding of how forces, such as the weight of a building, its contents, and environmental loads, are resisted by and transferred through structures and buildings to the ground.

Areas of study include concrete structures, steel structures, numerical methods in engineering and structural dynamics.
