Completion of this MSc Bridge Engineering at the University of Surrey will help you successfully pursue a career as a bridge engineer with a consultancy, a specialist contractor or a local authority.
This MSc Bridge Engineering will help you develop your knowledge and skills base for bridge analysis, design and management. It also offers the opportunity for practising bridge engineers to update their knowledge of current design and assessment codes and guidelines, and become familiar with developments in new techniques for the design, construction and management of bridges.
The course encompasses a wide range of modules which address the whole life-analysis of bridge structures from design through to end-of-life. We also offer you a choice of optional modules from some of our other study streams, covering structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, water engineering, construction management, and infrastructure engineering and management.
You’ll have the chance to attend a field trip to a bridge site, which will let you experience how this course’s knowledge is applied in real life.
There may be opportunities to acquire valuable European experience by working or conducting research abroad during your degree or shortly afterwards. It is possible to do this in the summer period with an Erasmus+ grant working on your dissertation or as a recent graduate. In order to qualify your Erasmus+ traineeship must be a minimum of two months.
