Structural Engineering and Mechanics
The goal of structural engineering is to predict the performance of structures under every imaginable extreme event: earthquakes, hurricanes, avalanches, fires and explosions; this programme provides students with a range of methods to analyse and design structures with quantifiable reliability over their design life.
Entry requirements for postgraduate taught programmes are normally a 2.2 Honours degree or equivalent (eg GPA of 3.0 or above) in a relevant subject unless otherwise specified. International students with academic qualifications below those required should contact our partner institution, Glasgow International College, who offer a range of pre-Master's courses.
Core courses include: advanced structural analysis and dynamics; applied engineering mechanics; computational modelling of nonlinear problems; fire resistance of structures; plastics analysis of frames and slabs; structural concrete; structural dynamics and earthquake engineering; structural engineering preliminary research project; structural engineering review project; thin-walled members and stability. MSc students undertake an additional individual project.
Students are required to submit a dissertation and present the results of their project work in the form of a poster presentation in early September.
