Structural Integrity

The course is aimed at new graduates who wish to develop their careers, together with practising engineers who wish to gain a recognised postgraduate qualification in an important discipline. The overall objective is to produce high quality engineers with an in-depth knowledge of the science and technology of structural integrity, materials degradation, asset ageing and inspection. The underpinning theory and principles of these disciplines will be covered in a set of eight taught modules. Application of theory will be consolidated during a research project. The course equips students with an ability to assess all aspects of asset integrity management, and the necessary knowledge and skills to analyse and act on the survey results obtained.
