Course info

Summary

Course description

This MSc in Structural Engineering comprises eight taught course units worth 15 credits each and a research dissertation worth 60 credits.

The taught units cover advanced aspects of theory and design relevant to the static and dynamic behaviour of structures in steel and concrete. Specialist aspects such as seismic and fire engineering are also covered. Additionally the course provides an introduction to finite element modelling, experimental work and research methods.

A particular highlight of the taught component of the course is studying the behaviour and design of structures against extreme loading including fire and earthquake, which is taught by internationally leading researchers and engineers.

As a large multi-disciplinary engineering department, MACE has academic staff who are experts in a broad range of research areas and have a wide spread of professional experience in industry.

Teaching and learning

Traditional lecture and tutorial-based teaching is supported by well-equipped laboratories for demonstrations and for experimental work and all taught units are also supported within a modern e-learning environment. Dissertation research provides our students with training in research by investigating a novel and complex problem under the personal supervision of a MACE academic experienced in supervision for higher research degrees. Our teaching and learning philosophy involves teaching our students advanced techniques and supporting them to apply their knowledge to solve problems both in a research context and in industry when they graduate from The University of Manchester.
