MSc Earthquake Engineering

• Provide the basis for the recognition and understanding of the major features of structural engineering. • Provide an introduction to the subject for students from other relevant disciplines Distinctive features of this programme include a strong quantitative element and pathways focussing on different elements of structural engineering through a diverse set of options supported by world-class teaching and research expertise in relevant disciplines. These courses are career-orientated and cover both the theoretical background and practical design considerations. The electives enable students to develop a primary study theme. to a total of 12 modules in completion of the programmes. students undertake either one two-week conceptual design project and a major investigative research dissertation. or advancement in. • Foster the acquisition and implementation of broad research and analytical skills related to structural engineering. and to think about the issues and challenges of the material. The courses consist of a number of core subjects and electives modules which are taken in the first two terms. The programme aims to: • Produce graduates equipped to pursue careers in seismic analysis and design in industry. in addition to electives in both taught terms. For certain spring term modules. the related module in autumn term is a prerequisite. written and graphical communication To provide students with sufficient material to explore the subject. from the UK and overseas. to carry out selforganised study.
