About

The Structural Engineering program from the University of Oklahoma emphasizes the practical aspects of design, while providing students with fundamental backgrounds in both experimental and analytical research methods.

Overview

Coursework covers steel structures, reinforced and prestressed concrete structures, concrete materials, concrete pavements, static and dynamic behavior of structures, earthquake engineering, and numerical methods.

Structural Engineering also demands a basic understanding of various areas of mathematics such as linear algebra, ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations and statistics. 

Program focus

Graduate programs in the School of Civil Engineering and Environmental Science at the University of Oklahoma provide advanced engineering education through classroom learning and participation in research. CEES faculty are recognized nationally and internationally for their teaching and research expertise.

The graduate program in structural engineering emphasizes the practical aspects of design, while providing students with fundamental backgrounds in both experimental and analytical research methods. Coursework covers steel structures, structural design with wood or masonry, reinforced and prestressed concrete structures, concrete materials, concrete pavements, static and dynamic behavior of structures, earthquake engineering, advanced mechanics, and numerical methods. Structural engineering also requires a basic understanding of various areas of mathematics such as linear algebra, ordinary differential equations, partial differential equationsand statistics.

Experimental Structural Engineering research, in which the physical response of structural materials and components is studied, plays an important role in our graduate program. A fundamental understanding of mechanical and structural systems is developed through a combination of experimentation and numerical modeling. 

Analytical methods are used to formulate accurate mathematical representations of mechanical behavior that can be used in both research and design of structural systems. A second program in the field of structural health monitoring is also available. Research in this program includes both laboratory and field investigations
