Overview

Students on the MSc Structural Engineering course at Swansea University will be provided with in-depth knowledge and exposure to established and innovative ideas and techniques to enable them to develop sound solutions to structural engineering problems.

The role of the structural engineer is of growing importance to society as populations grow and the world becomes more inter-connected. Skyscrapers are getting taller and bridges are getting longer. 

The Green Energy revolution requires energy generating infrastructure to be structurally designed for resilience in harsh environments, e.g. high wind or deep marine locations. As a major contributor to CO2 production (10% of global emissions), the construction industry depends on structural engineers to design energy efficient buildings, using appropriate materials to minimise the environmental impact of the sector.
