Overview

By pursuing research in the Civil Engineering (Structural) programme from Newcastle University you will join an extremely successful research group focussing on structural civil engineering. Our mission is to foster, promote and conduct research of international quality. This means that we attract high quality graduates and researchers and train them to international standards.

Within the School of Engineering we have a research group focussed on geotechnics and structures, which deals with the fundamental concepts of material behaviour, construction and design technology. Our research has a central theme of Earth systems science engineering and management, focussing on the concepts of:
  • sustainability in construction
  • climate change and the effects on civil engineering
You should have an enthusiasm for research in the field of structures, civil engineering. Our current research includes:
  • non-linear structural optimisation
  • non-linear analysis of conventional and non-conventional structures and materials
  • structural integrity assessment
  • seismic design and analysis
  • resilience of complex infrastructure networks
Examples of MPhil and PhD supervision in our research areas include:
  • analysis of concrete at elevated temperatures
  • structural optimisation and reliability
  • structural textiles and polymeric composites
  • seismic engineering and extreme loadings
  • the effects of transient loads on structures
  • numerical methods
  • computational mechanics
  • analysis of lightweight fabric and pneumatic structures
  • resilience of complex infrastructure networks

Quality and Ranking

We rank in the top 150 for Civil and Structural Engineering - QS World University Rankings by Subject 2019

Delivery

Off-campus study may be available in some circumstances, particularly if you have industrial sponsorship. Our programme includes intensive subject-specific supervision and training in research methodologies and core skills. You will also have an opportunity to undertake paid laboratory demonstrations and tutoring to gain teaching experience.

You will be taught by eminent academics who are experts in the field, such as:
  • Professor Peter Gosling, Professor of Computational Structural Mechanics
  • Dr Vladimir Vinogradov, Lecturer in Structural Mechanics and Materials
  • Dr Sean Wilkinson, Senior Lecturer Civil Engineering and Geosciences

Programme Structure

Course Overview:

Our programme will help you to:

  • complete a training needs analysis, so that you know what your current skills are and where you need help and development
  • use your training needs analysis to create your personal development plan
  • identify appropriate workshops or other events that will help you most and best address your development needs
  • gain the personal and professional key skills development for the successful completion of your research degree

Upper Second Class (required)
GRE admission requirements GRE® The GRE® General Test is a widely administered admissions test that measures the skills needed in today's graduate and business school programs worldwide. It contains three sections - Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Analytical Writing. Three scores are reported: a Verbal Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, a Quantitative Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, and an Analytical Writing score on a 0 - 6 score scale in half-point increments.
GMAT admission requirements GMAT The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a test intended to assess certain analytical, writing, quantitative, verbal, and reading skills in written English for use in admission to a graduate management program, such as an MBA. GMAT contains 4 sections - Analytical Writing Assessment, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative and Verbal. The score has a range from 200 - 800.

English requirements

IELTS admission requirements IELTS The International English Language Test System (IELTS) tests your English-language proficiency on a scale of 1 – 9. The score refers to the combined average score of 4 subjects (writing, listening, speaking, and reading).
