About this course

The Concrete Structures courses provide training in the design, analysis and assessment of concrete structures including bridges and buildings.

They are designed to cover a broad spectrum of structural engineering issues and their impact on reinforced and prestressed concrete structures.

All our MSc courses are career-orientated and cover both theoretical background and practical design considerations. Lectures are given mainly by full-time staff but important contributions are made by visiting professors and guest lecturers who are eminent industrialists.

Course Modules

All of our MSc courses 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 students undertake 12 modules: six in the autumn term, examined in January; and six in the spring term, examined after Easter. These modules include both core and elective material, enabling students to develop primary study themes.

The syllabus covers a comprehensive set of topics related to concrete structural engineering, together with advanced analytical and numerical techniques.

Modules include:

  • Concrete materials
  • Design of bridges
  • Design of timber and masonry structures
  • Finite element analysis
  • Non-linear structural analysis
  • Prestressed concrete
  • Reinforced concrete I
  • Reinforced concrete II
  • Seismic design of concrete structures
  • Structural analysis
  • Structural dynamics
  • Structural fire engineering
  • Structural reliability
  • Structural stability
  • Theory of Shells
  • Design project: dissertation
  • Add on module: Business management

MSc course add-on Business Management module
This MSc course offers the add-on module of business management which comprises 120 hours of study taken as an alternative to the corresponding amount of engineering study.

This four-unit module equips you with the skills needed to work in competitive business environments in the civil engineering industry. It is suitable for those who wish to combine a technical competence in their chosen field with a grasp of the principles of business management. The module is designed to complement core material in the MSc courses. 

Part-time study
All of our MSc courses are also offered on a part-time basis. Methods of study may include:

  • One day per week over three years
  • One and a half days per week over two years
  • Term release

The term release option normally involves attendance in the autumn term of one year and the spring term of a second year, but this may vary from one course to another, depending on your personal circumstances.

The dissertation is undertaken with regular guidance from a College supervisor, by private study or by arrangement at your place of employment. Please contact the relevant course director for details of the part-time arrangements for each course.

How to Apply

All applicants must apply online.

You can usually apply for up to two courses, although your second choice will only be considered if your first-choice application is unsuccessful.

Most courses don't have a formal closing date, but popular courses close when they are full, so you should apply early to avoid disappointment. There may also be funding deadlines that apply to you.

You will need to upload documents with your applications, which may include transcripts and degree certificates.

Offer holders will need to pay a deposit to secure your place. This will be deducted from the balance of your tuition fees.
