Overview

The MSc Structural Engineering programme at Coventry University is designed to develop knowledge and understanding of engineering principles and practices, together with methods used to analyse, design, test and monitor structural engineering systems, materials and structural performance.

From concept to construction, we will cover the technical skills required to analyse, design and develop sound solutions to structural civil engineering projects. Using case studies, practical sessions, simulation labs and site visits to live projects, you will apply engineering principles and use computer modelling techniques to analyse complex engineering systems, gaining valuable experience of the work you will carry out in an industrial context. Past projects have included the Severn Trent building and the Coventry A45/A46 by-pass.

Career prospects

Engineering-related sectors contribute a staggering £280 billion in gross value added to the UK economy – 20% of the total, according to a recent report by the Royal Academy of Engineering.
