The majority of new buildings in the UK have steel structures, the use of steel in construction is growing in many other parts of the world.
This specialist course aims to prepare structural engineers for careers in the global construction industry by providing advanced knowledge of the properties and applications of steel.
There is an active steel structures group within the department whose research feeds directly into our MSc (Eng) in Steel Construction. So, you’ll have the opportunity to be taught by world-leading experts in areas such as structural fire engineering, and you’ll also have the opportunity to work with academics who specialise in steel on an in-depth research project.

The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it is current and relevant. Individual modules may be updated or withdrawn in response to discoveries through our world-leading research, funding changes, professional accreditation requirements, student or employer feedback, curriculum review, staff availability, and variations in student numbers. In the event of a material change the University will inform students in good time and will take reasonable steps to minimise disruption.
