Structural and Fire Safety Engineering
In this programme students gain knowledge of the critical issues in structural fire safety engineering and an understanding of relevant fire and structural behaviours. Students will become familiar with performance-based approaches to design and have an awareness of the capabilities and limitations of relevant advanced modelling methods for structures and fire. The programme covers the fundamentals of fire science, including laboratory classes, fire safety engineering and relevant structural engineering topics, such as finite element methods; students choose their own research project from an extensive range of options, culminating in the dissertation.
The minimum entry requirement is a 2.1 degree, or its international equivalent, in civil engineering or a related subject; applicants with backgrounds in other fields may be considered; 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.
Core modules include: fire dynamics laboratory; fire resistance of structures; fire science and fire dynamics; mechanics of repair; plastic analysis of frames and slabs; quantitative methods in fire safety engineering; strengthening of structures; the finite element method and implementation; thin-walled members and stability.
