Civil and Structural Engineering

You enhance your technical skills in various core areas of civil engineering that are in demand in the construction industry, such as advanced geotechnics and river and coastal engineering. You also further develop your conceptual understanding of critical aspects of structural engineering, such as advanced structural analysis and design, and become familiar with complex analysis and design techniques, modelling the causes and solutions of problems involving the real behaviour of structures. You also acquire an advanced knowledge and understanding of the design of structures under dynamic and earthquake conditions. Advanced project planning and visualisation methods, such as building information modelling, are also integrated into the course.

Entry requirements

Applicants should normally have an Honours degree (preferably at least 2.1) in civil engineering or another equivalent qualification. You will also be considered with a 2.2 in Civil Engineering if you can evidence relevant experience.
