The compulsory modules taken on this course are designed to give you a strong foundation in the skills and methodology necessary to successfully complete your research project over the summer period.
By taking the MSc Civil Engineering: Structural Engineering, you will be expected to focus these core modules and your subsequent research project on an issue relating to Structural Engineering.
The course is taught through lectures, tutorials, projects and student-centred learning.
In addition, you will be able to choose from a number of optional modules to either further develop your studies in this area or to include other topics offered from an approved list of civil engineering modules.
Over the summer period, you will undertake a research project on a subject of your choice relating to structural engineering. The research project is a chance to carry out a major piece of independent research under the supervision of a suitable member of academic staff.
