Course Summary

The MSc in Concrete Structures course provides training in the design, analysis and assessment of concrete structures including bridges and buildings. This Master's degree is designed to cover a broad spectrum of structural engineering issues and their impact on reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. Lectures are given mainly by full-time staff but important contributions are made by visiting professors and guest lecturers who are eminent industrialists. The Department's MSc courses all last one calendar year, comprising two terms of taught material, assessed by examination and coursework, followed by a five-month period involving one or more design projects and/or a research dissertation.

All our MSc courses are career-orientated and cover both theoretical background and practical design considerations. Many of our students continue their studies to undertake research towards a PhD. This degree is professionally accredited by the following organisations: Institution of Civil Engineers; Institution of Structural Engineers; Institute of Highway Engineers and The Chartered Institute of Highways and Transportation. Assessment methods involve the following: A research dissertation or detailed design project; Group conceptual design project; Group projects and presentations; Individual and group coursework assignments and written examinations.
