The content reflects current and likely future practice in structural analysis, design, appraisal, experimental techniques and the use of computers.
The programme comprises eight compulsory taught course units and a dissertation. Taught units cover advanced aspects of theory and design principles relevant to the static and dynamic behaviour of structures, research methods and experimental methods, steel and concrete structures, and finite elements. A particular highlight of the taught component is behaviour and design of structures against extreme loading including fire and earthquake, taught by international leading researchers and engineers at the forefront of knowledge.
