Structural Engineering with Management

This programme provides a solid understanding of the whole process of structural design, analysis and operation. Students discover how to design and manage the dynamic behaviour of structures using state of the art hardware and software for performance assessment, measurement, and instrumentation to withstand normal and extreme operational loads. Alongside the core engineering modules, are two management modules taught by the Business School which help students develop transferable professional management skills that will enhance your study experience and improve your career prospects. The programme is taught by our internationally leading academic team with expertise in structural performance analysis and health monitoring, structural dynamics, control, infrastructure management, systems and informatics. Successful graduates will be equipped with specialist skills increasingly demanded by employing infrastructure consultants, contractors, operators, and government agencies and can expect to progress into international senior level positions in civil, construction and environmental industries. The Vibration Engineering group at have worked on almost 200 commercial research and consultancy projects over the last 25 years involving; dynamic testing and analytical modelling; short and long-term vibration monitoring; vibration serviceability of large and full-scale structures in open space environments Vibration engineering is underpinned by developments in measuring and modelling human dynamic loads based on a biodynamics approach. These loads are usually the key source of vibration serviceability problems. We can couple human dynamic load modelling with finite element modelling and model correlation and updating, based on dynamic testing of as-built large civil engineering structures. We have international expertise in structural health monitoring and extensive experience of full-scale testing of civil structures. We can undertake deep data driven assessment of civil engineering structures, based on novel on-line and real-time performance anomaly detection using operational modal analysis and data mining tools. These are currently employed on a number of full-scale structures in the UK and overseas.
