Decision making at a high level is often demanded by the industry, and here you will learn the techniques and unlock the confidence to use your initiative, communicate conclusions and solutions and tackle often-unpredictable scenarios.
This Structural Engineering programme offered by the University of Birmingham offers the opportunity to widen knowledge in the area of Structural Engineering by including structural engineering practice, wind engineering, structural behaviour (both static and seismic), geotechnical engineering and industrial research topics.
You will be able to deal with complex Structural Engineering issues, making sound judgements in the absence of complete information, and will be able to communicate your conclusions clearly to specialist and non-specialist audiences.
You will be self-motivating and able to act autonomously and will have the qualities and transferable skills necessary to exercise initiative and personal responsibility, to make decisions in complex and unpredictable situations, and to have the independent learning ability required for the continuing professional development and the civil/structural engineering practice.
You will display a high level of numeracy and display skills in problem solving, research, team working, and communication and information technology, which will equip you for a successful career outside as well as within the construction industry.
The course is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (Institution of Structural Engineers, Institution of Civil Engineers, Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation, Institute of Highway Engineers).
