"This course provides an attractive programme structure with a good variety of interesting modules."

"I have always been interested in structures and doing an MSc in that field was my dream. Having worked in a construction company before, and already possessing a bachelor’s degree in engineering, I was keen to expand my knowledge in structural engineering. This course provides an attractive programme structure with a good variety of interesting modules. Given that engineering is a demanding degree on its own, advanced engineering, emphasising structures in particular, can be a challenge. At University, I have the full support of my family and friends, my personal tutor and the programme director, along with the staff in my department.

What is fascinating about this degree is the extent to which it both covers and promotes the practical capabilities necessary for an engineer. Focusing on design of the most commonly used structural materials, along with the construction aspect, what more can an engineer seek? This course offers a substantial range of skills, but requires complete devotion and a lot of work. For anyone who is determined to put a lot of effort in and is enthusiastic about engineering, it will be a greatly profitable experience."
