Structural Engineering with Management

These programmes will provide you with a solid understanding of the whole process of structural design, analysis and operation. You will 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. The programmes are 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.
