The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
IELTS: 6.5 with a minimum of 6.0 in each component
At least 2 reference(s) must be provided.
These should be supplied and signed by academic staff at institutions where you have studied previously. They must be presented on the official letter-headed paper of the relevant institution. If you have been out of education for the last two years, you can send one academic reference plus one from your current employer if you wish.
When you’re learning how to deal with structural dynamics problems in earthquake engineering, civil vibration engineering and blast and impact, you need to know you’re learning from the best.
Our teaching is based on the expertise of the Vibration Engineering Research Section, known internationally for its applied approach to civil engineering dynamics.
The timetable is an intensive blend of lectures, lab work, site visits and design projects. We also run a series of guest lectures by industry experts.
Over the summer, you’ll work on your own research dissertation. This might include lab work, field studies, modelling or all three. Some students work with an industry partner. Others link their dissertation to a research project in the department.
All our structures-based courses are accredited by The Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation, and Institute of Highway Engineers as satisfying part 2 academic base requirements for a Chartered Engineer under UK-SPEC.
