Running since the early 1970s, this fully accredited MSc programme builds advanced capabilities in specialist aspects of bridge engineering. It is delivered by academics with a keen interest and track record in bridge-related research and practice combined with guest lectures from industry professionals within the field of bridge engineering and management. During the duration of the programme you will have the chance to attend a field trip to a bridge site which will give you the opportunity to experience how the MSc programme’s knowledge is applied in real life.
Successful completion of this programme will aid you in pursuing a career as a bridge engineer with a consultancy, a specialist contractor or a local authority.
This MSc will help you develop your knowledge and skills base for bridge analysis, design and management. It also offers the opportunity for practising bridge engineers to update their knowledge of current design and assessment codes and guidelines, and become familiar with developments in new techniques for the design, construction and management of bridges.
The course encompasses a wide range of modules which address the whole life-analysis of bridge structures from design through to end-of-life. We also offer optional modules from some of our other study streams, covering structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, water engineering, construction management, and infrastructure engineering and management.
