Course Description

Structural engineers apply mathematical and scientific principles to design, develop and evaluate materials and systems used in building load-bearing structures such as roads, buildings, rail lines, dams and bridges.

You will learn from researchers, who are recognised internationally for their expertise in high-rise structures, and earthquake and blast-resistant technologies and have access to some highly specialised subjects in the field of structural engineering, including the design of resilient structures to counter extreme conditions. Design seminars, field work and workshops provide opportunities to work with industry professionals.

This course will provide you with a formal qualification in structural engineering at the Masters level.

Career outcomes

Career opportunities exist in a variety of roles related to the design of structures, their longevity, and their ability to withstand extremes, such as earthquake, high winds, blast or fire, and the risk assessment of infrastructure, for government, consultancies and industry. You will find employment with national and global companies such as Arup, Bonacci Group, Brookfield, Multiplex, GHD, WorleyParsons and AECOM.

Professional accreditation

The Master of Engineering is professionally recognised under two major accreditation frameworks — EUR-ACE® and the Washington Accord (through Engineers Australia). Graduates can work as chartered professional engineers throughout Europe, and as professional engineers in the 17 countries of the Washington Accord.
