Program description

Structural engineers help to make, shape and maintain the built environment. They are professionals who enjoy innovation, challenge, opportunities, responsibility and excitement in a varied and satisfying career.
To meet the increasing demand for structural engineers to design safe, economic and environmentally-friendly buildings, the programme gives you a thorough grounding on current practice in dealing with structural fire and earthquake resistances and the design of carbon neutral buildings.

The course emphasises performance-based, structural design philosophy, building safety and sustainability, and disaster mitigation of civil structures.
Guest speakers are another strong feature. We bring experienced industry practitioners to Brunel to talk on specialist topics at regular seminars.

Your teaching will include lectures, laboratories, design studios, computer sessions, one-to-one tutoring, input from guest lecturers and site visits.
You’ll be assessed on your written assignments, presentations, examinations and your dissertation.

There are many career options in the civil engineering and construction industry in the UK and overseas. Potential employers include engineering consulting firms, architectural firms, public sector infrastructure client organisations, private construction organisations (as general contractors and sub-contractors) and real estate developers. Opportunities are also available with central and local government departments and agencies responsible for significant project portfolios.
