Civil Engineering Structures (Nuclear Power Plants)
This programme will study how to design, evaluate, and analyse structural systems, with a special focus on Nuclear Power Plants. You will learn all the principles used for the design of buildings, bridges, special structures and in particular nuclear containment structures.
Applicants should have a minimum lower second class degree or equivalent overseas qualification in Civil, Mechanical or Nuclear Engineering.
Modules include: Introduction to nuclear energy; advanced analysis and stability of structures; dynamics of structures; design of concrete structures; design of steel and composite structures; design of nuclear structures and foundations; finite element methods; research skills.
Assessment of theoretical modules is based on a combination of examinations and coursework. Examinations are shared between the January and April/May examination periods. Design oriented modules are normally assessed by coursework only, where students work both in groups and individually on challenging projects that are varied each year. For the MSc dissertation, students are required to attend a viva following submission of the final report.
