University of Edinburgh
Structural Engineering and Mechanics
This course, run jointly by the universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, provides advanced training for structural engineers; graduates are trained in a range of analytical methods and tools, with a particular emphasis on computer-based methods using advanced software; students also develop high-level problem-solving skills, enabling them to think in new and imaginative ways to solve difficult engineering challenges.
A UK 2.1 degree, or its international equivalent, in civil engineering or a related subject; applicants with backgrounds in other fields may be accepted; applicants whose 1st language is not English require: IELTS 6.5 (with at least 6.0 in each module); TOEFL internet-based test 92 (with at least 20 in each module); PTE 61 (with at least 56 in each of the communicative skills sections); or CPE grade C or CAE grade B.
Modules include: plastic analysis of frames and slabs (taught at Edinburgh); fire resistance of structures (taught at Edinburgh); applied engineering mechanics (taught at Glasgow); structural dynamics and earthquake engineering (taught at Glasgow); thin-walled members and stability (taught at Edinburgh); mechanics of repairing and strengthening of structures (taught at Edinburgh); computational modelling of nonlinear problems (taught at Glasgow); structural concrete (taught at Glasgow).
