Earthquake and Civil Engineering Dynamics
Learn how to deal with structural dynamics problems in areas of earthquake engineering, civil vibration engineering and blast and impact. Our teaching is based on the Vibration Engineering Research Section, known internationally for its applied approach to civil engineering dynamics.
Minimum 2.1 Honours degree in a relevant subject or equivalent overseas level qualification. Students whose 1st language is not English require an overall IELTS grade of 6.5 with a minimum of 6.0 in each component, or equivalent.
Core modules include: Linear systems and structural analysis; structural dynamics (earthquakes and vibration); computational structural analysis and research skills; structural design; design of earthquake resistant structures; advanced simulation of high strain rate dynamics. Option modules may include: Fatigue and fracture; advanced concrete design; sustainable concrete technology; structural design and fire resistance; innovations in structural concrete; blast and impact effects on structures; geotechnical design; risk and extreme events.
Assessment is by formal examinations, coursework assignments and a dissertation with oral examination. For environment courses, you�ll also take class and practical tests.
If you choose an environment course, you may be eligible for financial support. Full-time students that have accepted a place with us can apply for a bursary to cover fees and some living expenses. See our website for more information.
