What will I learn?

Deepen your engineering expertise with the Master of Engineering Structures at Australia’s leading university.* Learn to design, plan and construct sustainable, resilient structures that can withstand extreme events.

The Master of Engineering Structures is designed for qualified engineers who are looking to change their field of work or advance in their careers.

Be guided by specialists in infrastructure design, including earthquake and blast-resistant technologies. You’ll also learn from a dynamic mix of in-house and guest seminar experts on leading structural research topics including: sustainable construction and harnessing geothermal energy for greener and cheaper heating.

Course structure

You’ll complete 100 points of study in the Master of Engineering Structures. This includes two core subjects, High Rise Structures and Structural Theory and Design 3, and the flexibility to choose from a range of electives.

Structural Engineering electives

You’ll choose at least three subjects (37.5 points) of structural engineering electives, where you’ll explore disaster-resistant design, engineering modelling and extreme loading.

Infrastructure Engineering electives

Choose up to three subjects (37.5 points) of infrastructure engineering electives to broaden your knowledge of structural engineering and engineering management. Topics range from port and harbour engineering fundamentals through to environmental modelling.

Careers

When you graduate, you’ll be prepared for senior structural engineering roles in fields such as sustainable urban development, construction, mining and more.
