The Bachelor of Structural Engineering focuses on engineering problem-solving, and design and analysis, using modern, computer-based methods. The program provides specialist areas including mathematics and science, engineering design, communication and management, structural, geotechnical and water engineering.
Structural engineers create and maintain much of the physical infrastructure of society while managing and conserving natural resources. The goal is to do this in an environmentally sustainable manner, ensuring the provision of adequate infrastructure and natural resources for current generations without compromising the ability of future generations to do the same.
The Master of Structural Engineering is designed for all the students that wish to pursue their career in structural engineering. To meet the increasing demand for structural engineers to design more safe, economic and environmental friendly buildings, the programme content has specifically been designed to give a thorough grounding on current practice with regards to dealing with structural fire and earthquake resistances and design of carbon neutral buildings.
A particular feature of the course content lies with the emphasis on the performance-based, structural design philosophy. The strong focus on these aspects will appeal to any students who intend to become the next generation of structural engineers after graduation. Structural engineers are responsible for planning, designing and constructing bridges, buildings, tunnels, structures, roads, airports, harbours, water supply, dams, pipelines, sewerage treatment facilities, drainage, pollution control equipment and coastal/port facilities.
