On completion of this Structural Engineering programme at University of Nottingham you will be able to conceive, model, design and analyse a wide range of innovative structures and apply advanced concepts in structural engineering.


The distinguishing features of this Structural Engineering programme at University of Nottingham  are the integration of theory, design and application, and the response of structures to extreme loading (earthquake engineering and wind engineering). Integration is achieved by exploiting a computer modelling thread. 

This provides you with the opportunity to apply advanced structural analysis (finite elements, non-linear analysis, structural dynamics) using state of the art software. Using this platform, these techniques are applied within a practical context (steel structures, concrete structures, bridge engineering and earthquake engineering) which is developed further in a major design project.


The blend of academic study and development of practical and professional skills that the course provides is an ideal preparation for the future challenges of working in a multidisciplinary environment. Graduates of this course will be highly sought after and will be suitable to enter into a professional career related to the field of structural and civil engineering.
