Course Summary

Our accredited MSc equips you with a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of advanced earthquake and structural engineering principles. As you develop your knowledge and skills in these core areas you learn how to apply them to the design and construction of resilient structures.

You will work on projects closely related to real-life scenarios. Combining theoretical and practical components you develop the engineering skills to deal with challenges that affect the long-term performance of new and existing structures and their surrounding environment to support sustainable development. Group projects develop your leadership and teamworking skills and your understanding of how different specialisms come together to successfully complete a project.
