This specialist course aims to prepare structural engineers for careers in the global construction industry by providing advanced knowledge of the use of steel in construction.
You will gain a thorough understanding of the underlying principles of steel design and learn how steel is used in modern building construction. Composite construction, joint design, fire and earthquake resistance are just some of the topics addressed in the core modules you will study.
There is an active steel structures group within the department whose research feeds directly into our teaching. So, you’ll 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.
